“I have visited Dr. Alexandrou a couple of times for my infant daughter and I plan Dr. Alexandrou to be my daughter's physician for the years to come. I appreciate that he has been very thorough and very careful with my daughter's rather uncommon condition. He is always very approachable, explains everything with plain language and helps you understand the situation. You will feel in really good hands with him.“

    Our experience with Dr Alexandrou could not be more positive: he’s for sure the most knowledgeable, professional, caring and kind doctor we could wish to meet (and I work in the sector, so I have personally met many doctors)! He’s been looking after our two little ones with extreme competence and love, and we’ll be eternally grateful for what he’s been doing with our 10 months old son who underwent surgery soon after being born. Dr Alexandrou was able to make a very difficult diagnosis and treat him promptly! We couldn’t wish for a better pediatrician!!!

    We saw Dr Alexandrou on recommendation of another consultant physician. We found him warm and sympathetic to our feelings. He was also excellent clinically - getting to the heart of the problem very quickly. He also makes himself available by phone if something is urgent, which is much appreciated. Our little baby has been much happier since we started with Dr Alexandro. We're seeing him again next week.

    Dr. Alexandrou has been a pillar of support for us and has been the primary paediatrician for both our kids . His calm and encouraging manner was very helpful especially during our first few months of being first-time parents. He is very patient and explains things thoroughly. He welcomes questions and always puts our mind at ease. He is very competent and we highly highly recommend him.

    We always had excellent experiences with Dr. Alexandrou. He would always go the extra mile to understand what was wrong with our daughter and would follow-up. Also a very good human experience, for us and our daughter. Thanks for all

    Dr Alexandrou has cared for my 3 young daughters from their birth. He is incredibly responsive and helpful, even on holiday and out of office hours. We can contact him via text or phone and he has shifted his schedule to accommodate our family when urgency exists. He takes all of the time we need when we are with him, and his thoroughness is exactly what a parent wants to see. We are grateful to him and his help with our growing children!
