Parents/Carers kindly send in their written feedback to Sri Gada. Sri is always glad to receive written feedback of thanks/comments/suggestions/critique. Below is a sample of the feedback he received.

Dr Gada was absolutely amazing. We were seen on time. He spent a long time with my son and was very interested in our background, his birth, our home situation, school etc. He did numerous tests and we had a good rapport and Dr Gada was very calm and polite. He answered all my questions and he gave me a good understanding of what the situation was with my son. He took lots of notes and was very attentive to my son, noticing situations that I had mentioned. I could not be happier with the care attention my son received.

I had a full detailed report emailed to me and sent by post of our meeting and it was exactly what I had expected. Clear and easy to understand what I am facing and the next steps for me to take. I would recommend Dr Gada to anyone. Thank you Dr Gada for your time and patience. Pippa Theodoulou (Oli)

Dr Gada was totally attentive and quickly able to secure the trust of my daughter. He was kind, professional, and grasped the nature of the difficulties experienced by my daughter. He listened carefully. He wrote a very helpful report and turned this around in a very short space of time. I’m very grateful that my daughter was able to have the appointment with Dr Gada.

Dr Gada was very thorough and accommodating of our 4 year old son. He showed great patience and understanding. We cannot recommend him enough.

Our first appointment availability was offered within days when we were in a position to proceed. We were asked to provide upfront documentation to support our request, this was sent in, and after review, again days – we were advised that an appointment for assessment would be appropriate.

During our appointment Dr Gada was attentive, polite, courteous, kind and kept us informed althrough-out; adults and child. We overran our allotted time, but we’re not made to feel pressured nor rushed.

Dr Gada has been an amazing for our family. He has helped my son so much. I would really recommend Dr Gada to any family that is struggling with their child.

Dr Gada listened to all of our concerns about my son and really took the time to explain everything to us.

Dr Gada was very attentive and understanding during our appointment. He showed great empathy, compassion and understanding. He made my 15 year old son feel very relaxed which made him open up about any concerns or worries that he had.

I had been worried about my son for a while, and Dr Gada gave me wonderful reassurance about my sons possible diagnosis.

We had traveled an 1.5hr to see him and we felt that it was definately worth the journey to see a doctor who took the time to speak to you without checking the clock. I was impressed by the amount of notes he took and we left there with a definate mangement plan in place. I highly recommend Dr Gada.

Dr Gada is a very patient, knowledgeable and empathetic person. We took our son to him in pursuit of an ADHD diagnosis after being told the NHS waiting list was 2 years long. He spent loads of time with us in the initial appointment and very thoroughly examined my son and discussed his history with me. In the follow up appointments he has always taken the time to listen to us and is very respectful and inclusive of my son’s thoughts also. He is very good at making sure we are all comfortable with the treatment plan he suggests. I feel like he genuinely listens and cares.
