“Dr Ornadel is fantastic. I saw him for breathlessness after covid although it had been a recurring theme previously. He is personable, empathetic, thorough and unlike many doctors not remotely condescending (and I’ve seen a lot across a number of specialties in my time due to a multi-systemic chronic condition which went undiagnosed for over a decade, and have a fair amount of medical knowledge compared to your average patient). Importantly he also gives you agency over your treatment. Would definitely return and recommend to others - I’m fortunate that a doctor friend recommended him to me.“

    Breathlessness
    I would highly rate Dr Ornadel after my first consultation with him last week. I am generally someone skeptical of seeking help, but Dr Ornadel was able to put me at ease immediately and actually listen intently to how I was describing my symptoms and also pick up on things that I wasn't. He was very quickly able to build a rapport and as such I entrust his guidance and next steps.

    Dr Dan Ornadel is the most calm, thoughtful, thorough Consultant I have ever met. He listened to my description of my symptoms, made a note of them, and ensured that I had all the blood tests, X-rays, and CT Scans, I needed. Once the results were in, Dr Ornadel explained thoroughly what the problem was and the solution for the problem, as well as the steps needed going forward. Dr Ornadel made sure that I understood what was going to be done with regards to the treatment I needed, and put my mind at ease, as well as ensuring that my wife was comfortable and understood the treatment plan. Dr Ornadel was compassionate and understanding of our needs, and I am very grateful for his advice.

    Dr Dan Ornadel has been a consultant colleague of mine for over 15 years both in the NHS and private sector. He is a caring doctor who puts his patient at the very centre of medical attention and strives for excellence in his work delivered with a good bedside manner. He has a very loyal caseload of patients and has built a close network of specialists around him where additional services are required. I commend him to any patient with these respiratory symptoms for expert care.
