    Ms Rachmanidou is a lovely and attentive consultant. She was patient with me and listened to all my symptoms. She felt I needed to be seen immediately by another consultant and that was arranged on the day I saw her. She is absolutely brilliant and I am so glad I was referred to this woman by my husband. I would greatly recommend her - 100%.

    Explanation

    I have had the misfortune of consultations with numerous ENT consultants and this lady is the only 1 that has been honest, open, truthful and caring. She referred me to another consultant for further treatment outwith her specialty but I have faith in the doctor I was referred to as a direct result of Ms Rachmanidou. Some consultants see health insured patients as a new car or luxury holiday. Ms Rachmanidou sees patients as individuals and genuinely has their best interests at heart. If my mum ever needs an ENT consultation, I'm sending her to Ms Rachmanidou
