Mr Amen was my consultant for a Septorhinoplasty in September 2018. I am a 19-year-old girl and needed my deviated septum sorting as well as reducing the hump on the bridge of my nose. It was a big decision to go ahead with this operation as it can be scary but after research into consultants and meeting a couple, when I finally came across Mr Amen at the Fitzwilliam Hospital in Peterborough I could not have been more impressed. Mr Amen's level of professionalism and attention to detail was outstanding. He always made sure I felt completely at ease and knew I was in safe and experienced hands. Mr Amen took plenty of time to explain the procedure, as well as explaining how my nose would change visually. He did numerous tests, as well as taking lots of pictures to ensure the final result was perfect. My operation was a complete success and I no longer have effects of rhinitis and cosmetically my nose looks brilliant and very natural. I could not be happier. The recovery was far better than I imagined with minimal bruising, swelling and absolutely no scarring. From the first appointment to the end, Mr Amen was fantastic and myself and my family would highly recommend him for a Septorhinoplasty or any other surgery.
I have had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Amen on two occasions to date regarding my Menieres Disease. He is the first consultant to listen with compassion and understanding and has given me hope for the future. Having been diagnosed with this condition 10 years ago I thought I had exhausted all avenues for treatment but Dr. Amen recommended many other things we could try including new medication which is greatly helping me. In addition, he made referrals for further treatment at Hinchingbrooke Hospital and has certainly put me on the right road to recovery. I cannot thank you enough, Dr. Amen, for your life changing, invaluable support and advice.
A first-class service from a welcoming, listening and knowledgeable expert. Not only did Mr Amen resolve my ear problem, he also identified – and prescribed treatment for – another ENT issue which I had ignored for too long. I’m feeling so much better – and a recent follow-up with Mr Amen confirmed that all is well. Many, many thanks!
I had a parathyroidectomy a couple of weeks ago. Mr Amen was extremely professional had a wonderful manner about him and did a tremendous job. The scar that is left is extremely neat and will be hardly visible in 6 months time.
Mr Amen is a very good listener and has a reassuring, calm demeanour. He was at pains to explain his thinking and potential treatment options which I very much appreciated. I would certainly recommend him.
