    Right from my first consultation with Dr. Ornadel, he demonstrated an excellent bedside manner. He was patient and listened to my health issues and undertook a thorough examination. He proactively explained to me what the causes of my symptoms were and the underlying health condition, the care plan he would be undertaking and why he would follow that care plan. Thanks to his treatment I have gotten better and healthier. I highly recommend Dr.Ornadel.

    The whole experience was excellent. It started with Anita, Dr Ornadel’s secretary, who led me through the process with clarity and pace. On meeting Dr Ornadel he immediately told me my outcome. He was then very eager to understand my symptoms further. On listening, he was quite insistent that we got to the bottom of the issue, that day, and arranged for me to see a colleague. In the end, I was able to walk away, four days after making first contact, with a full understanding of what was going on.

    Dr Ornadel has been wonderful in his care of me, right from the day of my diagnosis, my hospital admission and my treatment. He has always gonna above and beyond to make me (and my family) feel cared for. He responds to emails with all my questions and concerns promptly and patiently. I’ll never forget his kindness and attentiveness during my hospital stay. Apart from being an excellent doctor, he’s a warm person. He makes his patient’s feel incredibly at ease in some difficult situations. He is reliable and trustworthy and I am very glad he is my doctor.

    Breathlessness
    On meeting Dr Ornadel for the first as a family we were very stressed and confused about the previous 3/4 weeks and the symptoms we were experiencing. Dr Ornadel was very effective and efficient. He got straight to the point and after 10 minutes of physical analysis and an x-ray he suspected 1 of 3 likely causes. He immediately set a path for recovery and sent us to A and E. He went the extra mile by contacting the on shift A and E consultant and organised that we are recieved with a high priority. 2/3 days later my mother is looking much better with his estimated diagnosis proving correct. We are very grateful as he pinpointed my mothers illness and recovery after an x-ray and a small amount of consultation time. His manner during all this time was very reassuring and he really cared about our situation. Thank you Dr Ornadel!

    I have known Dr Ornadel for about 15 years. In that time I find him an excellent respiratory consultant. He is so knowledgeable, kind, thoughtful and looks after me superbly. I do not think there can be another consultant that is so brilliant in his field. Whilst of course I would prefer to be well, and not need his expertise, I am confident that he will look after my condition to the highest possible degree.

    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.
