I was referred to Mr Awad for a lump in my neck. He saw me on time and arranged a scan on the same day. He was very calm and clearly very experienced. He explained the scan results and arranged for an operation. The operation went well and the scar is very small and neat. I am very pleased with the outcome. Everyone was kind and professional. Thank you all

I saw Mr Awad for throat discomfort. He immediately identified the source of the problem being my deviated septum with post nasal drip. I am impressed. Hopefully will get that fixed soon

Sadly, we didn't have a good experience with Dr Awad. We didn't receive any advice or help during the appointment or after it and we were very disappointed and confused and more anxious about my wife's health. This was our very first private doctor appointment and we paid for it fully ourselves and we got nothing out of it.

Mr Zaid Awad

I am extremely sorry you feel this way. As your wife's condition was complex and you have already seen few specialist, I tried my best to help and provide answers to your questions. It is extremely frustrating to patients but more so to me, when there isn't much to offer in terms of answers or treatment. I tried to spare you the cost of expensive investigations and repeated follow ups. I replied to the email I received from you to the best of my knowledge and chased your appointments with other specialists within the NHS as far as I could within the limit of my access to your wife's medical records. Again, I am sorry to hear you feel your experience was not satisfactory and that you and your wife are still suffering. I want to apologise that I failed to meet your expectations. I am happy to offer you a follow up consultation, free of charge, to go through things again if you think this would be helpful. Wishing you all the best.

Mr Awad was extremely accommodating to our request for an urgent appointment due to the fact that the patient was due to travel in the very near future. He was thorough in his examination and reassuring in manner. He was patient and took the time to draw diagrams to explain the possible conditions. His extensive knowledge and experience enabled him to put our minds at rest. He was able to suggest next steps - mindful of the fact that we were self funding. I would unreservedly recommend Mr Awad to anyone with concerns regarding lumps in the neck

I took my mother to see Mr Awad. We saw many doctors in the past and had confusing advice and different treatment plans for her illness. He took the time to examine her and listened to us. He was very thorough and polite. He explained everything in a simple way and provided us with a plan and support. Very grateful.

I am fortunate to have met Mr Awad when I was very ill and confused and not sure what to do or expect in the future. Dr Zaid explained the options I had in a language we can easily understand. He was very generous with his time We decided together on a plan for my treatment. The process was went better than what me and my husband expected because of Dr Awad's attention to every detail. He was very patient with us during our stressful times. We are very pleased with the result.

Mr. Zaid made sure that I understood the procedure by explaining everything to me in simplified terms, during consultation and before the operation. I am glad he convinced me to take operation now to prevent any further complications. He was very encouraging and reassuring that everything will be fine. I am pleased of the operations outcome as the cut is very tidy and isn't too obvious, which was my initial worry. I am very grateful to Mr. Zaid and hus team of the level of professionalism and the post-op care I have received while in recovery. I will highly recommend Mr. Zaid to anyone who may need advise regarding ENT cases.

Dr Awad is an excellent consultant and surgeon. I recently have a tonsillectomy and was greatly reassured by his manner and clear communication. The surgery itself went very well with no issues to speak of. He gave me advice to aid my recovery which worked well and an uncomfortable procedure really was very smooth. Greatest attribute was feeling like a person and not the next patient

I first met my ENT consultant, Zaid Awad, when he broke the devastating news, after a biopsy, that I had cancer of the soft palate. You can imagine how scared and nervous I was. He explained the various options and possible outcomes of each possible treatment scenario. Throughout, he talked to me in a way I could understand, didn’t use jargon and didn’t talk down to me or insult my intelligence. Of course I did my homework and internet search straight after our initial meeting and felt immediately reassured when I found out that I was in the hands of a brilliant and experienced specialist who is one of the very few accredited professionals to perform trans-oral robotic surgery (TORS) in the UK. He went out of his way and even did a second biopsy, on a day when he wasn’t even supposed to be operating. After getting the results of the biopsy and all the necessary tests and scans, Mr Awad was confident that the tumour was highly resectable. He arranged and carried out the surgery unbelievably quickly and personally intervened when my operation was going to be postponed because there were no available beds in recovery at St Mary’s, Paddington. It couldn’t have got worse really as the next available slot would have been two weeks later and I was really getting nervous and scared that by then the cancer would not be operable. Again it was Mr Awad who insisted on doing the robotic surgery there and then and personally arranged for me to be transported to Charing Cross hospital for recovery immediately afterwards. I had his reassurance with emails and also on the phone before I was discharged that the tumour has been removed. Later, the pathology results confirmed the same: there were negative margins and the whole tumour was out. Mr Awad and his entire team have made me feel I was the sole focus of their attention and not just another case or hospital number. Mr Awad is very personable, generous, caring and communicative. Despite his heavy workload, he responded to all

From the initial consultation and throughout my treatment for throat cancer Mr Awad always spent plenty of time explaining all the procedures and details of my treatment and I had absolute confidence in him. I recovered very quickly from the surgery Mr Awad carried out and I was very grateful to have been under his expert care.

Having found a lump in my throat I went to see my GP who referred me to Mr Zaid Awad consultant at ENT St Mary's Paddington Within 3 days I had an appointment and consultation with the consultant who recommended to have the lump removed . In the following 6 days I had an MRI scan, CT scan,ultra sound scan ,ECG and bloods all appointments were on time no delays at all , the nursing staff were all exceptional putting me at ease and explaining the different procedures Within 2 weeks I had an appointment for the surgery which again was faultless everything explained and was put at ease . Having just had my outpatient appointment to see my consultant MR Awad who went through the results biopsy and check everything was healing correctly . As a man of 51 this was my first ever hospital visit and was really quite scarred about the whole procedure. I cannot thank MR Awad and his team enough for the treatment and service that I received they are an absolute credit to the NHS

I was initially referred to Dr Awad by another ENT doctor, after discovering6 a lump in my neck. I was very nervous about changing consultant, but I needn't have been. I was very very fortunate to have been placed under the care of Dr Awad for my treatment . He truly is a fantastic ENT doctor/surgeon, very knowledgeable in his field, who puts the care and well-being of his patients first. His extremely kind and caring attitude helped me through my surgery and treatment phase . He ensured that he did the absolute best for me. I felt completely safe in his capable hands and have recommended him to everyone I know. I would now not go to see any other doctor apart from Zaid Awad. I will never be able to thank him enough for everything that he has done.
