"My daughter was warmly welcomed"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Ear, Nose and Throat

(as a parent/guardian),

My youngest daughter has suffered swollen tonsils for many years to the point that they were affecting her pronunciations and health well being. When we went to see Mr Karagama at his children's clinic, he was very caring and supportive of our worries and concerns.

It was truly amazing to see how well Mr Karagama dealt with my daughters nervousness and shyness. He showed true professionalism every step of the way.

On the day of her operation to remove her swollen tonsils, my daughter was extremely upset and worried, Mr Karagama and his staff were very nice and supportive and ensured that my daughter was warmly welcomed during her stay in hospital.

Mr Karagama and his team are truly a benchmark for all other consultants to follow. Highly recommended anytime.
