General Medical Council
Dr Nnatu really has saved my life. From the moment I met him on my first day of a lengthy admission to The Nightingale Hospital, I immediately felt that he sincerely had my best interests at heart and that he was going to do all that he could to help me. He listened; and that was so incredibly important to me. Never did he undermine how I was feeling and having that affirmation was so transformative. He continues to be there for me on my journey and knowing that I have his continued unwavering support is a true comfort. I feel immensely blessed to have met him.
Very understanding doctor
I met Dr Nnatu at a point of crisis in 2022. Based on an initial consultation, I agreed to start with in-patient therapy. After his diagnosis, we have been able to work together on a treatment plan which included day-patient group therapy and one-on-one therapy (with another therapist). Holistically, this put me on the path to feeling better 7-8 months later.
Seeing Dr Nnatu after years of struggling to talk to medical professionals was like someone took all the weight off me I’d been holding onto for years. I’d previously struggled with doctors gaslighting me or not understanding my complex symptoms and I feel so grateful to have been seen by Dr Nnatu to finally break this cycle. He is kind, sensitive and professional at all times. He listens intently and managed to confirm a diagnosis for me I had sought out for so long. I’m so glad I came to see Dr Nnatu and would recommend him to anybody - his warmth and knowledge has helped turn my life around.
Dr Nnatu was one of the best mental health professionals I have seen in a very long time, treating me with respect and enabling me to feel heard. I really valued his pragmatic, reassuring and non stigmatizing approach.
Great pre-admission review. Kept in contact throughout my stay.
It is a pleasure to talk to Dr Ian Nnatu. He helped me a lot to manage my anxiety through exercise, meditation, healthy habits, cognitive therapy and without the use of any medication. Dr Nnatu is super calm, explains you everything in a way so easy to understand, that makes you feel happy, secure and confident. It exceed my expectations and I'm very happy of how I can see my improvement. Thanks Doctor.
