Dr Yiannis is friendly and compassionate
Dr. Yiannis is an excellent pediatrician! He is the doctor of both my sons. He is very thorough when checking them, at the same time he makes them feel very comfortable. He listens to all my questions and addresses them with patience and knowledge. Furthermore, his office responds faster to email/phone calls than any other doctor’s office I’ve encountered. I highly recommend Dr. Yiannis and his team.
Dr Yiannis was warm, friendly and reassuring. He put us at ease from the start and carried out the examinations swiftly yet gracefully and respectfully without disturbing baby any more than necessary. He also explained his findings and next steps clearly, giving us all the information we needed to make any choices and decisions.
Dr Yiannis is knowledgeable, kind and takes a holistic overall view of the child. Very happy we found him.
Our consultation with Dr Yiannis was like a breath of fresh air. After numerous appointments with other Doctors, we finally found a doctor that was able to offer us a pathway to get our daughter back fit and healthy again. He listened and was very caring about the situation. He was also able to put us in touch with a couple of his colleagues who have also been extremely helpful. We cannot recommend highly enough.
We were recommended to see Dr Yiannis regarding our twin sons sickness symptoms and he didn’t disappoint. Dr Yiannis listened to our concerns, thoroughly checked our son over and referred him to the necessary teams for further investigation. We feel that no stone as been unturned which is a relief!
Always very reassuring to see Dr Yiannis. He always takes the time to explain things and for you to talk through anything of concern. Patient and helpful.
Highly professional, caring and clear in his explanations. I felt that me and my 5 month old were in very good hands with Dr Ioannou!
We have been seeing Dr. Yiannis for a few months now, he always goes beyond our wants/needs/expectations. No worry/concern is too much to explore/navigate. Our children love seeing him in clinic. His office staff always get back to us quickly, and we always have a positive experience.
Very helpful and great at explaining
