    Dr Yiannis Ioannou is incredible. Over the years he has always been on hand to help and advise me with regards to the care of my children. He has this magical kindness and is able to connect with the children in a wonderful way making them feel at ease at every appointment. It’s rare to find a doctor that combines such personal touches and care for his patients with outstanding quality of medical care. I highly recommend Dr Ioannou and the wonderful and warm experience from start to finish.. Highly recommend and thank you.

Both our children are very comfortable with him and we would highly recommend him.

    Dr Yiannis is excellent. I couldn’t recommend him more. I took my 8 month old son to see him because I was worried about his neck and strange jerking movements he was making. I was very anxious and Dr Yiannis examined him thoroughly and reassured me there wasn’t an issue that it was behavioural and only to return and see him if it still persisted in 2 months time. He was personable, reassuring and knowledgable, I would recommend him to any parent who is concerned for the health or well being of their child.

    High temperature
    Our 1-year old was unwell with a high temperature and we called Dr. Yiannis asking to see him. Due to the clinic's Covie-19 policy we could not attend with a high temperature so we asked for a home visit, which was permitted. While he did call us back several hours later to offer some phone advice, he had his assistant offer a home appointment 5 days later which was not at all responsive and totally beside the point. We had to go to A&E in the middle of Covid-19.

    Dr Yiannis Ioannou

    Thank you very much for your review. My practice and I take all feedback into consideration to understand how to improve our service and I am sorry you did not feel content that we could not see your son quickly enough at home. The current situation with COVID 19 has been very challenging personally and for all private paediatricians to see children with fever, whether in clinic or at home. Due to the increased demands on our time and clinical workload, emergency home visits are not always possible and my office booking team usually make this clear to parents at the time of enquiry. I am sorry we could not meet your need on this occasion and based on your feedback we will ensure this is made clearer for future similar enquires for all families. As a parent and paediatrician, I fully understand the difficulties this situation places on parents and emergency departments are always a safe and available option. There is a lot of work ongoing within private hospitals in which we run clinics to facilitate us seeing children with fever safely for all families and I hope this will make things easier soon for yourself and all families seeking this option. I realise this does not help your situation directly now, for which again I express my apologies, but I hope this offers some explanation of the circumstances. I hope very much all is now well with your son. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly on contact@doctoryiannis.com if you would like to discuss this matter further or if you would like a complimentary video consultation to discuss any issue that has arisen since. With kind regards Dr Yiannis and on behalf of everyone within our Practice.

    My partner and I could not rate Dr Yiannis highly enough. His phenomenal service during the numerous lockdowns has helped to put our minds at rest and not panic over our daughter’s illness during the Christmas period. We can say with confidence that Dr Yiannis will be our daughter’s doctor for her whole childhood and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
