    My son was understandably a little anxious about seeing an unfamiliar Doctor and undergoing some diagnostic tests. Dr Yiannis was incredibly kind and understanding and immediately put us both at ease with his charm and smiley demeanour. He directed questions to both parent and child, inclusively, and carried out physical examinations with sensitivity. My mind is at rest that my son will happily return for his follow up appointment.

    Dr Yiannis was recommended very highly to us and we were not disappointed. My son was very distressed as he dislikes doctors/hospitals however Dr Yiannis was very understanding and put us both at ease. Dr Yiannis was very thorough at explaining everything to me and also identified something of which was not picked up on by my usual GP despite the numerous visits. Definitely recommended!
