Dr Gada put our son at ease straight away! Throughout our appointment he was friendly, approachable and explained the whole process in detail. The appointment was extremely thorough and we are looking forward to receiving a similar report. Couldn’t ask for anything more - so supportive and knowledgable and understood our son so well xx

I would love to thank you Dr Gada for diagnosing my son. You were so kind, empathic, understanding. It was very difficult for me to hear about my sons condition, but you have helped me to process all the information. My son has now EHCP plan and receives all the help. Thank you once again for diagnosing my son.

Dr Gada immediately put my daughter at ease and kept her engaged for the whole appointment. He spoke to her with respect and checked that she was ok throughout. A far less scary experience than she was anticipating !

Dr Srinivas was so patient and understanding with our 5 year old and did everything he could to make it a fun playful examination to the point our son didn't even realize he was being tested and evaluated. Very nice clean facilities and a lovely free vend coffee machine, hot chocolate recommended.

We visited Dr Gada with our 6 year old daughter. Dr Gada, was so kind and so patient with her. We weren’t sure what to expect, and he put us all at ease very quickly.We felt like he had really taken the time to read through the many notes and forms that both ourselves and my daughter’s school had completed before our appointment, which made everything seem a lot smoother than any other appointment I’ve ever been too. We didn’t have to answer a lot questions again and explain why we were there.He was conscious about everyone’s feelings and needs - for example, he could see my daughter getting overwhelmed and suggested a break - rather than pushing on - this small act made her feel much more comfortable.After the assessment and we were talking through everything, he was very clear about his thoughts and answered any questions we had.

We met with Dr Gada with our 4 year old boy. We were very apprehensive at first as our son does not deal very well with these type of situations but we were amazed at how comfortable and open our son was. This was due to Dr Gada! He instantly engaged with our son and created a fun and relaxing environment! Dr Gada was extremely professional and thorough is his assessment and we really can't recommend him highly enough!

Excellent!! Dr Gada has exceptional bedside manner and his credentials as a leader in his field were on show during the three hour session with our son. His assessment was thorough and the prescribed way forward was pragmatic and filled us with positivity and hope. My wife and I cannot recommend him more.
The level of care and attention we received for our son was outstanding. From the guidance we had from his team while compiling and completing the necessary paperwork, through to the professionalism and temperament of Dr Gada himself. His supportive, calming and playful approach made the whole assessment process much less stressful for our son who normally finds these situations overwhelming. Dr Gada clearly articulated all of his findings with us at the end of his assessments and endeavoured to answer all questions we had, leaving us with a clear picture of the situation we were in. He also provided direction to local and national support groups ensuring we have a supported route to aftercare. Overall, I could not have wished for a better service.

We met with Dr Gada this week, he instantly made our 12 year old son and us feel comfortable and made him feel at ease to assess him. Normally my son doesn’t like speaking to new people. Where Dr Gada had been through all our reports, he knew the best ways to engage with our son.He was very professional spent lots of time assessing him in many ways.He went above and beyond the expectations to assess my sons needs.For the first time we felt our sons needs was adequately met. We would highly recommend him. He was recommended to us from my sister in law.

Dr Gada assessed my six year old last week. He was so calm and engaging with my child and immediately put us both at ease. Dr Gada was really patient with my child and made the assessment fun for a six year old. Dr Gada also answered any questions I had and gave me a full breakdown of diagnosis’s at the end of the appointment ahead of the full report I received. Highly recommend.

We cannot recommend or thank Dr Gada highly enough. We had hesitated to seek a diagnosis for our lovely five year old son as we were concerned about ‘labelling’ him so young. But, as Dr Gada told us, a medical label is much better than a social label and early intervention is key. Our son was duly diagnosed with ASD, ADHD and DCD and the experience was wholly positive. The assessment day itself was intense but Dr Gada made us all feel very comfortable and had a wonderful manner when engaging with our son. We were given the diagnosis at the end of the session. This was delivered with great kindness and sensitivity and we left feeling positive and reassured. It was a relief to know why our son has been struggling with certain things and empowering to know how we can now help him. A few days later we received a management plan which included many resources for us and set out clear strategies for the school. We are so happy to have proceeded with diagnosis and will be forever grateful to Dr Gada.

Dr. Gada was extremely nice and kind during our 3-hour+ assessment, and his thorough and tremendously detailed report will be the foundation for me to gain the right support for my little boy, including obtaining an EHCP and securing a place at a suitable special needs school. I just wish I had seen Dr. Gada three years ago when first noticing my boy’s difficulties. But the good news is, it's never too late. I am relieved that I now know what I am dealing with and have a plan to help my boy achieve his full potential.

We had a really positive experience with Dr Gada from start to finish. The booking procedure was fast and efficient.

It was so lovely to finally be heard and listened to.Even though Brooke struggled half way through Dr gada gave Brooke time to breathe and relax and she came back ready to finish the assesment.He was so kind and humble and Brooke really trusted him which is amazing as she doesn't trust easily.I got the diagnoses I have wanted for Brooke for 5 years and I will forever be gratful for Dr gada and his team.

I had an appointment with Dr Gada and upon arrival he was very friendly, polite and as he had read through all of the assessments that we submitted he knew a lot about us which added the personal touch as it broke the ice and felt as if we were talking with someone who knew us.Dr Gada took his time with my son who is 6 years old and made him feel comfortable and safe. He went above and beyond and did extra assessments whilst we were there as he had noticed some other things were going on that could be contributing or additional factors to what we had initially gone to see him for, as he wanted to give us a thorough evaluation which we were very grateful for, as we can now move forward with this extra information and work towards helping our son. We will take his advice on board and read through all of the information he has given us. Dr Gada also attached a lot of links with different resources that we can access and go back to when we need to.

We visited Dr Gada last week for a full assessment for my son in Oxford. Dr Gada was brilliant, he immediately put my son at ease. He was very thorough throughout the appointment explaining to us as he went. Looking forward to receiving our diagnosis letter and management plan, if the appointment was anything to go by I can imagine it will also be very detailed, including a lot of information to help my son.We would highly recommend Dr Gada, (and have passed on his details to two other mums at my sons school) thank you for everything!

Dr Gada had been recommended to us and now we understand why. He has an excellent manner, putting us at ease from the outset. He had clearly prepared for my sons assessment beforehand, as the appointment progressed it felt like he knew our son well. The appointment was not rushed in any way, we had plenty of opportunities to ask questions. We gained so much that had been missing from our understanding and I will be forever grateful to Dr Gada for the positive experience and sharing his expertise with us.

He made the experience very interesting and enjoyable. He was very professional, empathetic and informative throughout. It was a thoroughly positive experience. I would highly recommend Dr Gada as a very child-orientated and child-friendly Paediatrician.

Amazing consultant. My son thought he was extremely funny and wants to go back again! He spent so much time talking to us and our son, he had read all of the forms and as well familiarised with answers from us and teachers. After the assessment he spoke to us with his initial thoughts and summarised our son exactly. It was like a breath of fresh air.

I was given Dr.Gada’s details by a friend who had used his services for her own sons diagnosis. I couldn’t have asked for more. He was so thorough but without it feeling invasive at any point. The way he interacted with my son and understood him so clearly made what I thought was going to be a potentially stressful/high anxiety driven process feel easy on both my son and myself. Dr.Gada went through his assessment/diagnosis on the day but then has since sent his detailed report within 3 working days. It is such a comprehensive report that I know it will be life changing for my son and I will absolutely be following his recommendations as I’m confident that these will have a massive impact on my sons quality of life and in turn the whole family. I can’t thank him enough.

Our 11 year old son was assessed for ASC and ADHD in Dr Gada’s clinic. Dr Gada greeted us all by name, and it was very clear from his knowledge of our son, that a lot of work had been completed before meeting us. The assessment turned out to be quite fun, and incredibly thorough. Dr Gada was very kind, attentive, and so knowledgeable in his field. We were given a diagnosis at the end of the appointment, and lots of time to discuss any concerns and questions. We received our incredibly detailed written report, just 1 week after our appointment. Dr Gada came recommended by a friend. I too, fully recommend Dr Gada and the service that he offers.

We visited Dr Gada in June 2023, the preparation for the appointment was very thorough. I highly recommend watching the videos of what will happen and when, they were very helpful.Dr Gada was very methodical and assessed my 10 year old daughter through play, scenarios and questions, though intense, it was in a relaxed setting. He examined her physically thoroughly.He went though the ASD scoring in detail and explained at length clearly and slowly what the soring meant and why he was going to diagnose my daughter.Dr Gada understood my daughter completely, he understood her challenges and frustration and anxiety. It was a huge relief to meet someone who acknowledged my daughter, her strengthens and difficulties, whilst making us feel at ease.I also would recommend the video Dr Gada has created, about being persistent and polite parents in dealing with SENco at school. His words have helped in difficult and challenging meetings which can be frustrating.My daughter was worried and anxious before the appointment but Dr Gada put her completely at ease.

As soon as we walked into the room Dr Gada put our son at ease by immediately engaging with him in a fun and playful way. All the while he was closely assessing him, highlighting things that even we hadn't noticed ourselves. Dr Gada has a very kind and patient manner, and was thoughtful at every stage of the assessment. We were given an immediate diagnosis, followed by a full report that detailed all of Dr Gada's findings, plus a comprehensive list of guidance on what to do next to help ensure our son can meet his fullest potential.

We had an appointment with Dr Gada with our 9 year old son. He was fantastic at talking to children and created a calm and relaxing environment. Dr Gada's preparation was amazing and he knew all the information we had submitted prior to the appointment. His examination was thorough but also fun for a 9 year old which put him at ease. His conversation with us as parents was very informative and his conclusions to the examination and diagnosis made complete sense. He took time to explain his findings and gave us advice about what to do next. We have already recommended Dr Gada to a couple of friends who have similar concerns about their children.

I visited Dr Gada in December 2022 with my 15 year old daughter. He made us feel so at ease as soon as we entered the room by cracking jokes and talking to my daughter in an age appropriate way. He made my daughter feel valued, listened to, and clearly has a wealth of experience in the field.He paid close attention to her responses, he spoke to us together and individually so I had a chance to voice any concerns.The appointment was followed up with a thorough report, which is helpful to have to highlight to school the support needed.I would recommend Dr Gada. He has a very calm and pleasant demeanour and made the whole experience less daunting than expected.

He instantly put us at ease and more importantly was able to get our son to interact and complete the full assessment, he doesnt do well with strangers. After the assessment he sat us down and explained everything to us and answered all our questions and concerns about where we went next.

He ensured we had plenty of time to discuss his diagnosis and answer any questions we had. The report was delivered quickly and was very comprehensive, the management plan recommended by Dr Gada was very helpful and will enable us and the school to provide the support she needs.The overall experience from initial booking through to the final report was extremely positive and well supported by Dr Gada and his team.A 5 star service and I would like to thank Dr Gada for the support and guidance he has been able to provide to me and my family.

We visited Dr Gada at his Reading Clinic for our 10 year old sons neuro-diversity assessment.At each stage we were impressed by the professionalism shown, from making contact, to the assessment and diagnosis itself, to the follow up and the fully extensive report received just days after the assessment, we couldn't fault the service we received. Each of us were comforted by Sri's manner but most importantly he immediately helped our son to feel so comfortable and at ease after feeling so nervous prior to the assessment. Teddy commented on this and whilst it was an emotional meeting and outcome, he left there feeling like he has a super power. Quite honestly I was in awe of his calmness and immediate connection and understanding of not only to Teddy but to us as a family. We still have a mountain to climb but the diagnosis and recommendation report provided by Dr Gada has very much given us a check list of tools needed for the journey ahead. I fully recommend his service, worth every single penny.

He assessed our son during a lengthy appointment alongside the questionnaires and documentation supplied. Dr Gada was kind, gentle and professional and put our son at ease.We are so glad that we did this in time for our son heading to secondary school in September.We now have diagnoses for him and can move forward with both knowing how to help him and as well as getting him the support he needs from others now we have Dr Gada's comprehensive report including recommendations and resources. The report came through to us only a week after the appointment and we have been able to share this with his school.Thank you very much.

Dr Gada was very thorough, calm & friendly. It’s never going to be a nice experience having your son assessed under these circumstances but Dr Gada treated us all with respect and explained everything in so much detail. We didn’t feel rushed. He knew our family like the back of his hand and we never had to correct him on anything, this shows dedication to each ‘case’ and his report was with us a week later. What an excellent service, We are so pleased we found Dr Gada and would recommend him and his services to any parent needing help and support.

Dr Gada is a warm, empathetic, knowledgeable and highly skilled clinician. He gave out 11 year old daughter his full attention, and his assessment and explanation were thorough.

I was worried that due to my son not communicating very well that an assessment wouldn't be able to be completed fully but I was amazed at how Dr Gada managed to not only complete a full ASD assessment on my 4 year old son he also managed to get a few words out of my son during the assessment which never happens with strangers!Dr Gada is amazing with children, I am so pleased I had my son seen by him as now we have his diagnosis quickly instead of waiting years on an NHS list so my son will now get the help he needs sooner.I highly recommend Dr Gada to anyone thinking about going private.

Dr Gada was recommended to me by my daughter's behavioural specialist for an ASD assessment and I had heard wonderful things about him. From the moment we met him I could tell that he was going to live up to the expectations and I was not disappointed. He was calm, reassuring, and, though my daughter struggles with meeting new people, I could tell she felt at ease with him.The whole process was fascinating to watch and I felt very privileged to see him work. I thought I knew everything about my daughter but it was incredibly enlightening to see how she responded to the tasks and questions. Dr Gada explained everything fully and picked up on so much. One of my fears about the appointment was that her traits would remain masked as she has learnt how to hide them well, but the way in which he presented things meant that they were actually very clear to see.I would wholeheartedly recommend Dr Gada to anyone and will also be looking to use his services again myself in the future with my youngest daughter too as I was so impressed. He is kind, respectful, thorough, attuned to the needs of the children he works with, informative, and clearly dedicated to his work. We feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to be seen by him. Thank you so much for your time and for giving my daughter the empowerment to be the incredible human that she is.

After spending 7 years fighting with the NHS and getting no where we decided that we needed to look somewhere else. The reviews on websites like this really helped. From the moment I emailed the secretary she was really helpful and I already knew I was doing the correct thing. They were helpful on the fact my son is a masker, Dr Gada suggested that Jodie Smitten should see him for an observation. This was very helpful and we Jodie got a great report of my son. The forms I received to fill in were very useful I had so much information that would be impossible to talk about it all in one appointment, my son also does not like me talking about his problems so it was great that most was wrote down. On the day my son was nervous and his anxiety was really affected on the way, but when Dr Gada called us in and started to talk to my son I could see him let his barrier down. Dr Gada in the appointment was fantastic, he managed to capture everything about my son that we see at home, he engaged with my son and only occasionally needed to discuss a few things with me, it put my son at ease because I did not have to go into detail about him. Dr Gada had read all my information before the appointment I could tell. At the end Dr Gada spoke with me about what my sons diagnosis was, he also discussed other diagnosis that should be looked into. I did get emotional after 7 years of fighting it was a relief to have confirmation. I received the very detailed report within a few days. I would tell anyone that has a child that masks and does not show it in a 45min NHS appointment that it is the best thing I have ever spent money on. My son now has answers and his school have put things in place for him. Thank you so much Dr Gada

I would 100% recommend Doctor Gada. He is so professional and knowledgeable and thorough in his dealings with you. He listens and fully understands your concerns and answers all your questions. His report and management plan was very detailed and gave us clear support and guidance and a clear way forward. His website and information he provides to you both before, during and after the appointment is brilliant and very informative. He thoroughly understood our daughter and I cannot thank him enough for all his help. We finally feel like we can move forward after months of uncertainty.
