    Consultation for my breathing
    I happen to be suffering from anxiety and depression and I happened to come see Dr Ornadel for wheezing in my chest. I’ve had some good and horrible experiences with doctors over the years and was immediately surprised by Dr Ornadel’s approach, empathy and perception. I hadn’t encountered it before and not once did I feel like a “number”. He listened! Even though I know I was telling him things that I’m my heightened emotional state weren’t related. He could tell that they were important to me and allowed me to “tell my story”. Which for a patient in trauma and frightened enough at the prospect of ill health, is hard to manage. I left feeling heard. I wish he could be my GP.

    Excellent experiences with Dr. Ornadel. He is professional and caring at the same time. I was quite scared of my Bronchoscopy process. Dr. Ornadel motivated me and did such a painless smooth process, that I'm amazed. Many thanks sir.

    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.
