We visited Dr Gada with our 7year old son in June. From the moment we arrived until we left Dr Gada was amazing. 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. I am so glad we were able to get our sons assessment done with Dr Gada and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an asd assessment.

My daughter saw Dr Gada at his Oxford clinic. He put her at ease incredibly quickly given she doesn't like talking and interacting with people. Dr Gada was able to recall information we provided in the form and questionnaires we answered in advance about her likes, dislikes and hobbies to open the conversation with her.Dr Gada was thorough in his testing, interactions and physical examination of my daughter. 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.

We had the pleasure of meeting Dr Gada this week for an ADHD assessment for our 6 year old son, we have been very much looking forward to this day and what can I say, we weren't disappointed. He was absolutely amazing with our son, lovely caring manner which put us all at ease. The assessment was very thorough and done with professionalism and kindness. We came away with a diagnosis and the stepping stones to be able to understand what we are dealing with and to provide the best for our son's future.Thank you Dr Gada.If anyone is considering looking into a private assessment, Dr Gada is definitley the person to see.

Our 10 year old son had a private neurodevelopmental assessment with Dr Gada. Unfortunately the NHS has not been there for our child.We are extremely thankful to Dr Gada. 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.

We took our daughter to see Dr Gada recently. His manner with her was excellent and he made her feel very relaxed. He was able to keep her attention for an hour to assess her (which is no easy task). He explained her diagnosis clearly and advised us on various aspects of support and information to access. It was a very positive experience and I would highly recommend him.

Dr Srinivas Gada has been a huge help for us as a family. Our son has had a thorough assessment which has highlighted all of his difficulties, and Dr Gada has given us the diagnosis, support and guidance that we’ve been desperately needing. Would highly recommend.

I cannot thank Dr Gada enough for his incredible service. He was so fantastic with my son and gave precise and honest feedback, answering any questions and queries I had. It did not feel rushed and he made my son, my husband and I all feel comfortable straight away. His feedback was just absolutely amazing and so so helpful. He has helped my son and my family with his knowledge and understanding more than I thought possible. Thank you Dr Gada

Dr Gada, is utterly brilliant, we cannot thank him enough from the bottom of our hearts the help and support he has provided to our daughters.Dr Gada has a magnificently kind approach and a wonderful way of connecting and with both adults bit more importantly our children.Within each consultation we have felt listened to, valued and supported and the help and guidance following these appointment has been outstanding, clear and concise in a world that as parents can feel so daunting.Thank you, are 2 words which seem so tiny compared to the help and support provided to our girls, but they are so sincerely meant.I would have no concerns or doubt in recommending Dr Gada to other parents and young children who need and would welcome this kind of support.

Sri was extremely helpful and thorough. After waiting for 2 and a half years with another year to wait on the NHS we can now get our daughter the help she needs and deserves. He has provided lots of help and links going forward as well as tips to help our daughter.

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. His report was comprehensive and he gave recommendations of resources about autism for us and the school to help our daughter with her difficulties. I highly recommend him.

Dr Gada assessed our son for autism. He seemed to understand him very well, he was precise and direct with expelling his diagnosis to us which was really helpful. He had clearly read and understood about 30 pages of information on our son before the assessment and we received a very detailed clinical report with management strategies which were really helpful.

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.

We visited Dr Gada at the start of February, straight away we felt comfortable and relaxed with his friendly manner. He was very good with our son and explaining everything to us in detail. Also the report we got after was brilliant, with his diagnosis and all the steps that would help him going forward. Now we are much happier and are able to understand our son a lot more and getting him the support he needs.

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.
