    Dr. Sri specialises in the assessment and management of children with Autism/ASD, ADHD, Dyspraxia, Developmental Delay, Learning Disability, Emotional & Behavioural Disorders, Cerebral Palsy, children with school/educational difficulties and syndromic disorders such as Down Syndrome.

    Dr. Sri graduated in India in 1992, coming First in the 2nd Year and Final Year of Medicine, at his University. While working at Leicester Royal Infirmary, he gained DCH and MRCP qualifications (1996-99). Sri then worked at Queen's Hospital in Essex and The Royal London Hospital, training to be an Intensivist (1999-2000). During this specialist training, his daughter was diagnosed with a disability.

    This personal experience stimulated his interest in pursuing Child Neurodisability as a career. Subsequently, he went on to receive training in Child Neuro-Developmental Disorders at The Royal Free Hospital in London (2001-05). He undertook Diploma Studies in Paediatric Neurodisability from Sheffield (2004-05).

    Dr. Sri then worked as Consultant Community Paediatrician with an interest in Neurodisability at Oxford University

    My consultation only fees are £200 for new patients and £100-150 for follow-up. Please ask my secretary regarding the costs for carrying out detailed neurodevelopmental assessments for ASD, ADHD etc. The assessment costs vary from £700-£1000, depending on the complexity of the case, the presence of co-morbidities, location of practice, overheads, etc. Neurodevelopmental assessments are in-depth and comprehensive exercises that involve 4-6 hours of work for each child. This includes at up to 2 hours of face-to-face assessment, head-to-toe examination, full physical examination including neurology, growth assessment, report writing, post, admin, etc.

    Very happy with our experience with Dr Gada. There was good prompt communication, and a very thorough approach throughout the process of having our 10 year old assessed for ADHD. Our son felt at ease with him, even whilst all wearing masks and we felt we had a good chance to discuss things without feeling rushed. Sensitive, informative and with a very positive outlook, we would not hesitate in recommending Dr Gada.

    From the first point of contact, through to our appointment Dr Gada’s team are friendly, polite and professional. Information and forms are processed quickly and efficiently. Dr Gada is very pleasant and we felt at ease upon arrival and throughout the appointment. My daughter engaged immediately and Dr Gaga knew when to listen and how to keep her on track to what was required as she can go off topic very quickly. Very impressed by the level of detail and time Dr Gada took to read the details we had provided ahead of our appointment and he was able to talk about family and points of interest my daughter has with her with ease and interest. Now we have gone through the process I so wished we had gone to Dr Gada sooner. Highly recommended Dr Gada and his team.

    I saw Dr Gada with my son who finds appointments, new places and meeting new people tricky. He had recently been too anxious to attend a number of medical appointments, so we were concerned with how this would go but we didn't need to worry. Dr Gada's staff were helpful, providing the information I needed to make visuals for my son, and were welcoming on the day. Dr Gada was kind and encouraging to my son - gave him information to help him understand what was being asked, asking permission before doing things etc. He made sure that the whole process felt safe and calm for my son, while still being very thorough and addressing all of our concerns. Dr Gada took the time to read the copious amount of previous reports so he had a complete understanding of my son's history and wrote a detailed report for us at the end. Where similar appointments on the NHS have been extremely difficult for child and parents alike, this one left my son feeling very positive. He proudly told his TA afterwards that he "saw the doctor who told me how strong I am." I would highly recommend Dr Gada.

    He has to be to warmest, kindest doctor I have ever met. He fully understood my daughter as soon as we sat down, after having a struggle for 5 years trying to get her teachers to recognise theres a problem. As he talked about her difficulties to like he'd known her for years, felt like a weight of my shoulders that he could see it to

    Fantastic experience with Dr Gada last week, who was recommended to me by a dr colleague, helping work out why my 11yr old struggles with aspects of her daily life. I sent him over 40 pages of information with less than 24hrs before the appointment, yet when we met him he must have taken on board all of it. He understood her immediately, and although this type of assessment is long, every bit was relevant. He was kind, gentle and he listened to everything she and we said, both verbally and implied; he just seemed to ‘get’ her. He made her feel at ease, and took pains to emphasise her strengths, and give her space throughout the process. My husband and I are both doctors and have worked with many others in our time, so are well placed to recognise and appreciate when someone is excellent at what they do. Such is Dr Gada, and I could not recommend him highly enough. I am so grateful to his him and his truly helpful secretary Sam.

    The whole experience from referral through to the appointment has felt incredibly positive. We decided to take our 9 year old daughter to see Dr Gada as we were worried about her social and emotional development. Our daughter was made to feel really welcome and safe, and she left feeling positive after Dr Gada continually praised all of her strengths. The assessment was extensive and naturally covered all of our concerns. Although tiring it was good to have a longer appointment to cover everything in a single session. Dr Gada had spent considerable time reviewing all of the documentation provided ahead of the session so we felt he already knew and understood our daughter before we even walked into the room. It was useful to discuss her diagnosis in depth there and then at the end of the appointment, as I know going away and coming back would have led to us making our own assumptions based on what we witnessed during the assessment. A diagnosis can be seen both positively and negatively, however Dr Gada's reassurances about our daughters future have really put our minds at rest and allowed us to see a positive path forward.

    Mr Srinivas Gada is a warm, compassionate, highly skilled paediatrician. When I consulted with him recently, he devoted great care, expertise and attention to my daughter, and to my concerns (and need for expert opinion) as a mother/parent. He completely put my mind at rest, gave my daughter and me a truly comprehensive review and wrote a letter to our GP. I found the whole consultation enormously reassuring, and very efficient. Above all, Dr Gada exudes kindness, humanity, wisdom and competence. A very safe and caring & pair of medical hands Thank .you Dr Gada.

    My son, who has significant special needs, has been under care of Dr. Gada over the last 10 years. Throughout this long journey, right from the diagnosis. He has shown exceptional commitment to provide a high quality care that has helped not only my son but us as a family to cope up with stress of day to day management. Dr Gada is highly professional with a great sense of empathy. At every clinical meeting has left a profoundly positive impact upon us. My son knows him very well because He showed tremendous understanding and patience whilst interviewing him during the clinics. We as a family feel a great sense of gratitude toward Dr. Gada for the care provided.

    Dr Gada was patient and spent more than his allocated time with us. Dr Gada took time to talk to parents and child about his diagnosis and talked about how it would impact life today and in the future. The consultation has changed our lives, giving us access to the care/ support for our son going forward.
