My daughter came to Professor Bruce due to having polyps in her left side of her face causing her to struggle with breathing through her nose and smelling, after the first assessment and scan an appointment was made to have the polyp removed. My daughter was well looked after by all staff. Professor Bruce was fantastic and professional making my daughter like and trust him. Surgery was successful and I would recommend Professor Bruce and his Team.

We have seen Professor Iain Bruce since my son was younger for glue ear. He has aways been extremely professional and helpful. No question is ever too silly and he is always more than happy to spend time going through any concerns and queries you have as parents. My son was always happy to see him and his bedside manner was excellent. He even went out of his way to query something with his colleagues and took the time to get back to me after our follow up consultation. An amazing Dr and one I would highly recommend.

Dr Bruce conducted a pinnaplasty on my 8 year old son. I could not recommend more highly the skill of Dr Bruce, the transformation is incredible and my son is delighted with the results. Dr Bruce ensured that my son was fully involved in the decision making from the first consultation to the last after care meeting. Thank you for giving him back his confidence and putting him at ease throughout this experience.

Dr Bruce completed pinnaplasty on my 8 year old son. Prior to the operation my sons ears were uneven in shape and stuck out terribly. The surgery was a great success, the transformation is incredible and I could not recommend the skills of Dr Bruce more highly. Throughout the consultation process, prior to surgery and aftercare follow up appointments Dr Bruce made sure that my son was the in charge of making decisions which in turn put him completely at ease and excited about the results.

We took our almost 4 month old to see Prof Bruce regarding difficulties breast feeding due to our daughters tongue tie. Prof Bruce was very approachable, making us feel at ease throughout the appointment. He was very insightful and informative regarding the procedure. He was very gentle with our daughter and in putting any anxieties we had at ease. He offered excellent follow-up and after care if we felt this was needed. Thank you very much, we can’t speak highly enough of this service and would completely recommend to others.
