First time at Harley st , Dr Kurt for ENT was exceptionally respectful patient and explained in details the diagnosis. Super treatment. Vey professional. Would recommend him for any ENT consultation.
Also I was amazed on their latest diagnostic equipment for test a complete ear and balance disorder. Really advanced technology and prompt test procedure,
mr Nedhin responsible for carrying out these tests was remarkable in his work well prepared experienced and explained at each stage what to expect and what to do during the testing. They both made the experience smooth comfortable and assuring. Thank you very much.

Dr. Kurt saved my life. I am just 33 years old and was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. I had a very large tumor in my neck. After an extensive surgery due to some complications I was in the ICU for 8 days and the ward for 7 days. He was by my side that entire time. He explained to me what the steps would be to get me back to health. He never let my family or myself feel disheartened or disappointed at what was happening and always had a positive approach. He is extremely experienced and capable of handling extremely complicated and complex cases. I highly recommend Dr Kurt and would like to thank him for being more than just a doctor to me and my family.
