    This is the third time I’ve been to see Dr Debi Ray and I always walk away feeling that my children have been extremely cared for and I have received the best possible advice. There is a reason I always go to see Debi and no other paediatrician :-)

    Finally someone is helping my daughter. Her ADHD is now diagnosed! I had to go private because there is a two year wait on the NHS and she will be taking her GCSE’s in 18 months time so this is money well spent. Thank you so much Debi. I feel like we’re on the same page and I couldn’t have asked for a better consultant.

    I have looked after their patients

    "Excellent paediatrician. Sees all general paediatrics and specialises in developmental issues. I highly recommend her. Refers her children with ENT problems to me and they have always been treated properly first before being sent to me for an expert ENT opinion. I’ve especially seen a lot of her paediatric patients with ear infections, hearing loss, speech delay, snoring, tonsillitis, nose bleeds and tongue tie."
