I was struggling with various issues relating to frequent blocked nose,irritable stomach and headaches. This was badly impacting my lifestyle and so I consulted several GPs and ENT consultants to make sense of these. Eventually I was referred for a Septoplasty surgery at Addenbrookes to sort out my nasal issue. But due to the long wait I visited Dr Amen as a private patient at Spire-Lea to get a second opinion. After a thorough examination and tests he ruled out sinusitis and concluded that Septoplasty would not have actually solved my nasal block issue! Thanks to Dr Amen, I now know my options and am glad to have skipped unwanted surgery. Dr Amen created a structured plan to tackle the various issues and I am now making steady progress. He is truly professional, very meticulous, friendly,courteous and caring. He followed up on my progress even outside his working hours and was very reassuring at every step along the way. I would highly recommend Dr Amen !
I found Mr Amen courteous , charming and caring. He successfully treated my nose bleeding which was sufficiently serious to make me anaemic. I am grateful for having been treated by hime.
Mr Amen is an excellent surgeon who also has great people skills. His professionalism is more than apparent, but he also has the ability to make you feel totally at ease. A rare combination. He is kind, extremely courteous and very willing to answer questions however small they may be. In layman's terms he is a terrific surgeon and a lovely man who inspires trust and total confidence.
I had half of my thyroid removed by Mr Amen in April 2018 due to an unknown lump within the thyroid. I would recommend Mr Amen 100%. He understood my concerns and explained everything clearly. His team in the Head and Neck unit were very compassionate, helpful and kind. Peterborough City Hospital is first class. I could not recommend Mr Amen or Peterborough City Hospital highly enough.
