What our patients say

“I wanted to say a massive thank you to you and all of the staff at Spire Nottingham Hospital. I have had a bad experience in the NHS up to date and my appointment last night was a very welcome contrast to this.

I came with my partner and as soon as we walked through the door, we felt relaxed and were given a massive welcome. You could see the reception staff were busy but they were all smiling and welcoming and we thought they were fantastic.

Special mention to Dr Moorthy who took the time to listen and understand my issues, and we cannot sing his praises high enough. He was absolutely fantastic. Thank you to everyone involved in the process; you are all a massive credit to the hospital.”

Kate Gamage

Private Treatment Advisor

Thanks Dr Moorthy for diagnosing my back conditions quickly and for his very clear advice

Mr. J D, Kettering

My husband was in severe Joint pain, we consulted Dr Moorthy who is excellent in listening to our problems and treated my husband swiftly. He is very caring and thorough

Mrs. J B, Leicester

Thanks to you, I now lead a full and active life
Dr Moorthy has always been professional and available. He has always helped me to adapt to my personal situation.

Mr. AF

He was Very nice, put my mind at ease re my condition. Answered all my queries.

Mrs. JP

He was polite, knowledgeable and very helpful. He listened intently to the issues at hand and made quick judgements. I received good feedback on my problem and fast solutions to follow up procedures.

Mrs. WS

It has been an extremely beneficial teaching experience from you for my daughter Kalyani and I'm sure for all those who attended the session - and indeed, I too was rewarded by it. We are all truly grateful to you for sparing your precious time for the benefit of our students.

We, in India, badly need this kind of rational teaching - as our teaching, as you know, is still heavily dependent on rote memorization of detailed information from big books such as Harrison.

I am sure the students were enlightened by the exposure and introduction that you gave and it will help them shape their approach to learning medicine in more effective ways.

I hope to be in touch with you. Once again, thank you on behalf of my daughter and all the trainees.
