Consultant Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeon at The London Clinic (5 Devonshire Place) & The Bupa Cromwell Hospital, Kensington.
I qualified from Leeds medical school in 1984 and had my postgraduate training at Saint Mary's, Saint Bartholomew's and the Royal Marsden, London.
I was appointed as a consultant in Ear, Nose and Throat Surgery in 1997 and obtained a Silver National Clinical Excellence Award in 2011.
HOW LONG WILL THE CONSULTATION LAST FOR?
If your complaint is not dizziness I offer an initial consultation of 30 minutes and further follow-up of 15 minutes as required. I offer an initial consultation of 45 minute for patients complaining of dizziness with a follow-up consultation duration of 20 minutes if required. If you require a surgical procedure I will refer you to the appropriate surgeon.

Quality of Clinical Care
“The care Dr Montgomery gave me put an end to a seven-year long misdiagnosis. He was patient and thorough during my appointment, taking detailed history and performing an array of tests. He explained his observations very clearly and set out a plan for my follow-up investigations and care. He kept in touch, as he promised, with more information about my condition and how to manage it, and he even contacted my GP and my neurologist with relevant paperwork to ensure my whole medical team was aware of his conclusions. Most importantly to me, he was compassionate and never rushed the process, which made all the difference for finally understanding what I suffer from. It took me seven years to arrive at Dr Montgomery's doorstep but I left with a new confidence in my future. I'm very grateful."
“I was referred to Mr Montgomery by my GP after episodes of vertigo he made himself available to see me the same afternoon outside of normal business hours. His examination was extremely thorough and his explanations clear. He referred me to a neurologist for further tests who confirmed that his diagnosis was astute. Mr Montgomery's follow up showed his concern and I would not hesitate to recommend him ... he is truly THE expert on dizziness."
