We have seen many ENT specialists regarding my son's ear and I can honestly say that Dr Fairley was outstanding and ranks amongst the best. He is very understanding, professional and meticulous in his approach. He has a reassuring manner and presents a number of remedial options as well as pros and cons with each. Moreover, I was hugely impressed with Mrs Fairley's note taking as they were delivered by hand the next day to our GP and I believe the notes were already typed up before we left our appointment.
Dr Fairley was excellent with our son. He listened to our concerns and explained everything fully. Care before and after his operation was also excellent. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone with a child who has an ENT issue
Very understanding and gentle with my son. He went through the procedure first and explained what would happen and how it would feel.
I found Mr Fairley to be a very approachable, professional, knowledgable and friendly consultant. I felt totally relaxed during the examination and was kept reassured about what was about to happen and how it might make me feel. I have no hesitation in recommending him.
I am so very sorry to be leaving this review and I wish it could be a different believe me. I went to see Mr Fairley because I had googled and seen this doctors reviews online. During the appointment he began to do a test which involved putting anaesthetic down my nose which made me feel like I couldn't swallow or breath and I panicked. When this happened he wasn't very reassuring and had to get his nurse to help calm me down and after which of being put in a room for 20 mins whilst he attended to another patient who was apparently bleeding he called me back in and told me he wasn't going to undergo any further tests and my main concern was that I was suffering with depression and anxiety. The fact that he had told me that he believed I had a deformity of the inner ear from birth without doing any tests and when I asked if there was an surgery his answer was a blunt no was enough to set anyone into depression but that on top of the procedure with the anaesthetic had me in tears. I don't know how I managed to actually drive home that afternoon and when I did get back to my sister in law who was looking after my 3 year old I just threw myself into her arms and cried my heart out. Not a very good experience. Maybe this doctor doesn't understand the impact this has had on me when I went there with such hope and trust in him which was totally deflated and shattered and came out 100 times worse than I felt before going. I do hate that I am leaving this review but it is nothing but the truth and I wish it could be a different story. I am now trying to gain help from other sources as my ear problem is debilitating and making my life unbearable. I have 3 businesses and a 3 year old and I need to get this sorted and have some quality of life. Depression, anxiety and desperation utter distress are my secondary concerns!!! My primary concern is my ear and the struggles it is causing me just living a normal life. Even if I was given some form of help in the way of medication or hope it would have been something to pull me though but there was nothing. I felt he didn't even listen to me and his reaction to my distress was just embarrassment to have a woman crying in his room and he really didn't know what to say or how to reassure me. I would not recommend this doctor to anybody that needed reassurance and care.
