    When we first started looking for a paediatrician for our daughter we researched the hell out of it - and came across Dr Yiannis. It really was time well spent as we’ve gone back to him with both of our children. I’ve always found Dr Yiannis incredibly thorough and knowledgeable with a very reassuring manner that puts parents and children at ease. There’s never been any unnecessary tests or procedures and we’ve gone back to him for bigger concerns and smaller medical issues we’ve wanted a second opinion on. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.
