Mr Chatrath is the only Ent doctor I can fully trust with my ent issues. He actually takes the time to listen to my concerns and answers all my questions. He even helped me when I was abroad on a trip and had nasal problems. I would definetely choose Mr Chatrath as my ent doctor, as he is much more helpful than the other ent consultants I saw who barely give you 10 minutes, and rush you out the doot without answering my questions.

Originally my husband was under the care of Mr Chatrath, although an unsavoury procedure with Mr Chatrath’s professional, empathetic manner my husband’s operation was a complete success. Some years later it has been necessary for me to have a procedure and after seeing 2/3 consultants I requested Mr Chatrath under my private health insurance. He explains everything clearly and has an amazing manner that helps to keep you calm and focused to ensure your best recovery. Would always put my faith and trust in him.

Where do I start….well about 7 years ago I developed rhinitis. GP prescribed me nasal steroids. Worked well to control my symptoms. However, around late 2014 my symptoms got worse with a loss of smell and continuous nasal congestion. I ended up being referred to Barts Royal London Hospital. The lead ENT consultant who saw me (I can’t remember his name) misdiagnosed me saying that I had a cold. I was not convinced so asked for a second opinion. I later saw Mr Goswami, another ENT consultant, who confidently and correctly diagnosed my condition as Rhinosinusitis with the presence of nasal polyps. It was a vicious cycle, inflammation, blockage and finally infection. I was offered FESS surgery to remove the polyps and make a small drainage passage. On the day of surgery I assumed Mr Goswami would be carrying out the procedure however it was a totally new surgeon, in addition it was her first day on the job at the hospital. It freaked me out learning this especially never seeing the person before or having surgery in my life. So I decided to cancel it and was given prednisilone, antibiotics and a new type of nasal steroid. It worked like a miracle as I had my sense of smell back. However, this was only short lived and within a few weeks I was back to square one. It affected my quality of life and as such my confidence level was low. Around the same time I had developed dyspepsia where I felt a stuck feeling after eating followed by belching. Still not sure if this is related, nevertheless I had endless tests for this, with the cause still remaining unknown. I was referred again to Barts Royal London Hospital where I saw 2 more ENT consultants. The first one prescribed me a longer course of antibiotics and the second one (I think his name was Sandeep Paun) discussed the surgery options although he did not sound very genuine or sincere about it, besides, I would not allow a surgeon to put me under the knife if I did not have full confidence in the person. At the same time I investigated and researched and even bought a book called ‘Healing your Sinuses’ by Prof Ralph Metson. I also changed my diet (completely non sugar based) and also tried out some herbal medication such as Bromelain and Serrepeptase along with regular nasal irrigation. All these helped to some degree by easing the level of congestion, nevertheless I still had nasal polyps. I was not keen on having FESS due to the complications so I wanted to have balloon Sinoplasty. As I lost confidence in Barts Royal London after seeing some 5 consultants I decided to book a private appoint with Prof Chowdhury at the Spire Roding Hospital. He was a pleasant consultant who also explained to me about the risk of FESS but also stated he does not do balloon Sinoplasty. This left me checking on the internet to find someone who does this procedure locally and moreover had good positive feedback as the last thing I wanted to do was waste further time. Following extensive research I found Dr Paul Chatrath. After checking 5* reviews on various sites I was convinced this was the person to go for. So I booked a private appointment at Spire Roding. At first I was really impressed with his knowledge, expertise and ease of explanation. Not just that, he was very confident and reassuring. Mr Chartrah had great listening skills; he is indeed a credit to Spire Roding. Mr Chatrah carried out my surgery in November 2017 removing my nasal polyps. Very recently I saw Mr Chatrah again. He is a wonderful person and indeed the best of the best one can find in London (and perhaps the country) and the only choice for me as far as ENT matters are concerned.

Mr. Chatrath had done my son's tonsils and adenoids removal surgery in Feb 2019 at the Brentwood Nuffield hospital and my son had recovered well after the operation. Prior to the surgery, Mr. Chatrath had explained all details of the new cobulation procedure very clearly and answered our queries. As he had assured, the surgery went smooth as planned and we were glad to have come to Mr. Chatrath for consultation and he is a well qualified pediatric ENT specialist. I would recommend Mr. Chatrath if your child requires seeing an ENT for issues related tonsilits, snoring or disturbed sleep as he would definitely be able to help.

This was the first time I had seen Mr Paul Chatrath and I was very impressed with his manner and description of how he intended treating my symptoms. I was equally impressed at the way he listened to the description I gave him of those symptoms and his follow-up letter showed that he took notice. Not all consultants do that. So yes, this was just an initial consultation but I felt very reassured that whatever my hearing problem is, he would do everything possible to correct it...

I can only echo the other great reviews given to Mr Chatrath. I received an excellent first class service when I consulted Mr Chatrath for blocked and painful sinuses. I found him to be a professional, empathic, kind, and gentle Surgeon who really listened and understood my long-standing nasal issues that were seriously impacting on my daily life and health. I subsequently had a Balloon Sinuplasty procedure with removal of a cyst and I found the whole experience from the initial consultation onwards to be a very positive one with the procedure going very smoothly. I consulted Mr Chatrath at a time when I was in despair and he gave me back some much needed hope, I only wish now that I had consulted him much sooner. I am very thankful that I found Mr Chatrath and can highly recommend him as an ENT Consultant and would not hesitate to consult him again in the future should a need arise.

I had a great experience with Dr Chatrath having the Pinnaplasty procedure. He was the first, and the only doctor I saw for a consultation as I felt I could trust him to do a good job! The procedure itself was completely pain free, and Dr Chatrath and his nurse made me feel very calm and at ease throughout. I was in and out in about 45 mins, and was back to work on Monday after having the procedure on a Friday. My recovery was amazing. I was uncomfortable for the first few nights, but only felt the need to take painkillers for the first night. Dr Chatrath did my stitching very neatly, and now the stitches have dissolved, I can barely see a scar- nothing anyone would notice! I highly recommend Dr Chatrath to anyone thinking about having Pinnaplasty. It was such a fuss free way of effectively pinning the ears back, without having to go through the full ordeal.

My son has his adenoids and tonsils removed by Mr Chatrath. We were offered a new technique called coblation which seems to be less painful and has a shorter recovery time than the traditional method. My son did recover extremely well.

Mr Chatrath has been outstanding, I can not recommend him more highly. We were looking to have my 7 year old sons ears pinned back, after carrying out research online I found Mr Chatrath, and new technology Earfold. We had our initial consultation where our son, was very nervous and scared, as soon as we saw Mr Chatrath he spoke to our son and within minutes they were talking like old friends, this was a big relief to us as we did not want this to be a frightening experience for him at such a young age. We spoke in detail about the benefits of Earfold over the traditional surgery, which I have also undergone as an adult. The Earfold clips were put on our sons ears and straight away the difference was remarkable. With all the facts and figures we went away and made our decision. Due to the age of our son, the procedure could only be carried out at the Harley Street clinic. On the day of the procedure we attended Harley street clinic, this did not have the feel of a hospital environment which I really liked for our son, again he was nervous but started chatting away again to Mr Chatrath. The procedure was carried out on both ears and he was in and out within 30 mins and we were on our way home! It was amazing the change could be seen instantly, apart from a little bit of bleeding and some bruising, that was it, amazing. Our son was not bothered by the procedure, he experienced no side effects, he did not feel unwell or need any pain relief. We have been amazed by the difference Earfold has made not just physically but also emotionally for our son, according to him, he can now run faster as he is more aerodynamic! Our experience with Mr Chatrath has been first class, from our initial consultation, procedure and final consultation. The way he was with our son was fantastic, he is such a lovely, kind, caring man, who certainly looks after your best interests. The Earfold procedure is life changing and so quick and easy it is truly amazing, having gone through the full on operation myself at a younger age, the benefits of this new technology speak for its self. I suffered weeks of recovery, where as with Earfold with days he was back to school, apart from not being able to do any contact sports for 6 weeks, nothing in his day to day life changed. With the operation you had no idea how your ears would look and did not get to see them for weeks until the bandages were off, with Earfold you can see before the procedure the position of the ears and alter them to exactly how you would like your ears, and again after the procedure you can see results immediately. I wish this procedure was around when I had my ears done, as I would have jumped at using Earfold and Mr Chatrath. I can not thank Mr Chatrath enough, and highly recommend him and the Earfold procedure.
