I met with Dr Passetti via Zoom due to the current virus crisis. I found Dr Passetti to be a charming relaxing and friendly person. I had no problems speaking to him about my problems thanks to his manner.I would be happy to give my full recommendation.
Dr Passetti was by far the best Dr I have spoken to in a very long time. He is humble, respectful and understanding. He creates this calm aroma that supports you being open and comfortable sharing personal information. I would recommend anyone who is looking for support mentally and just general advice on your health and mindset. Superb experience!!
Dr Filippo is very kind and professional. My experience was very good and I highly recommended him if you need help and assisting you for your Illness. Hope all you don’t need but unfortunately In our current life a professional help can make you a big difference.
Dr Passetti has been wonderful, highly professional yet sympathetic and genuine. He really listens and takes into account my opinion when making decisions on treatment plans/changes.
Filippo was very kind to meet me at such short notice. He was understanding and generous with his time and clearly knew how to handle the situation. The prescription worked well and he was also very helpful as to repeating the prescription (despite my being quite desperate and I'm sure quite demanding). He gave me good advice as to how best to come off the medication too and all went to plan. I haven't needed further medication since. The only thing that was a little unhelpful was that he said there was a possibility that there could be a physical malady underlying the mental issue... which was so broad I found it difficult to know how best to respond in a measured/rational way. I asked him in an email about this but I got no reply. I also had an issue re billing/payments which was not anything to do with Filippo but with the billing company. Debra was very helpful too but they really were not. Thought you might want to know.
Great to speak to, very calming and understanding. Very knowledgeable and didn't rush the appointment. Made me feel very comfortable!
Straightforward but reasonably sympathetic manner. Not helped by him confusing which counsellor had referred me. Still waiting for his diagnosis letter after 7 working days. Also my initial appointment had to be rescheduled after being made due to his prior commitments.
Very professional, understanding and capable.
I just passed one year since my last visit to Dr. Passetti and all is well. He is a great guy and I highly recommend him. Actually, I miss seeing him.
I felt the Dr spent a lot of time with me even though he was 30 mins late for my appt. I struggled to answer all his questions as I am finding my situation difficult so I’m not sure he will have got the best reflection of how I’ve been feeling and what I’m going through. This is mainly due to my difficulty opening up. I look forward to his recommendation.
Very amicable and understanding psychiatrist. Arguably the most competent psychiatrist I've had in my psychological treatment over the years, and I've had a sizeable number. He explained the temporal effects of my medication over the course of the day, illustrating so with a graph at the corner of my diagnostic notes. Super helpful specialist. Don't be afraid to book him.
I can highly recommend Dr Passetti. He put me at ease and was very professional. I look forward to seeing him again.
Calm and understanding without any judgment, has helped immensely with my mental health in a supportive way and not just during the appointment but throughout the time it has taken to begin to be better and more stable
Doctor Passetti is an excellent doctor, smart, caring, a very good man. He has handled my treatment so well and has made it easy and pain free. He communicates very well, always answering an urgent text or phone message quickly. At the beginning of my treatment there were a glitch which the good doctor sorted out immediately well beyond the call of duty. Calling my local GP and other health professionals to get what I needed quickly and hassle free. I was amazed at the level of care. I can't recommend Dr. Passetti enough.
My name is F.F. and I have been battling cocaine addiction for 18 years. 2 years ago I was introduced to Dr. Passetti and he took over my recovery regime. After 18 years of suffering and pain caused by the addiction today I am clean and sober and live a very fruitful and rewarding life. Dr. Passetti diagnosed me with ADHD and was certain it was the root of my addiction problem. I was basically self medicating with cocaine. Dr. Passetti put together a network of specialists under his watchful eye and as stated before today I am clean, happy and sober.
Dr Passetti is a very available and friendly doctor, I would recommend him for anyone who needs someone who truly listens to him and cares about his wellbeing. He let me free to follow my own path, giving me some very positive advices when needed.
Dr Passetti is a very good listener and solver. What I liked about him was that he listened to my problems and then very carefully and specific explained to me about my problems and what could be the problem. Instead of just telling me directly and diagnosing me he made sure to give a lot of different stories and explanitions. I saw Doctor Passetti after seeing another doctor for 6 months and I realized Doctor Passetti was giving me a genuine approach. After seeing him he has still been in touch with me to see how I am doing. And it shows that he really cares.
I was really struggling with my OCD and anxiety and two previous psichyatrists had failed miserably. Luckily I found Dr Passetti. To put it clearly and concisely, he gave my life back. After a few very difficult months, I managed to turn a corner. I think he is one of the best in his field. His knowledge, compassion, understanding and empathy are second to none. I feel safe and upbeat again. I will be forever grateful to Dr Passetti. xx
Dr Passetti has been very understanding and caring. We had an extensive chat on the first visit, in which he asked very detailed questions and was open to listen to any concerns and doubts I had. He provided an appropriate therapy plan while explaining thoroughly possible side effects and duration. In addition to that he's been extremely responsive to emails between visits even outside of the working days. Overall a very positive experience.
I found Dr. Pasetti to be very personable and easy to talk to. He instantly made me feel at ease and comfortable despite this being my first session with a therapist in 15 years. He offered a clear and feasible action plan after the consultation and went above and beyond to accommodate it with my personal circumstances. Overall, I would highly recommend Dr. Passetti to anyone.
Professional and compassionate at the same time.
I came with a very special request to Dr Passetti: I wanted to discuss with him my DNA and how it affected my psychological illness and wellbeing in general. He noted down all information and came back to me with a treatment plan a few days later. I only had this once session with Dr Passetti, but he was always professional and knowledgeable in our discussions in person, phone and email.
Dr filippo was great, he put me at ease. Highly recommend him!
I've always found Dr. Passetti to be very compassionate and caring. He's a good listener and seems to genuinely care. Would recommend to friends and family.
Dr.. Passetti is kind and humane. I have never felt so comfortable in a first sesssion . Definitely recommendable.
I am writing as a patient of Dr Passetti's. I found him to be caring, compassionate, kind and responsive. He was available at short notice whenever I needed his help, I cannot recommend him more highly or thank him more. I feel that Dr Passetti really understands what it is to struggle with addiction.
What I found very interesting and may be rare to find these days is that Doctor Passetti is a real human before being a doctor as his profession . Me and my family have been in a very severe and unexpected situation for The mental disorder of one of my children which happened out of the sudden and we didn't know what kind of problem we are facing and what we must do as it was the first time we were seeing this problem in our child .. what helped us a lot was not only Dr Passetti professional advises but more important his 24 hours availability to talk to desperate people like us . I called him any time at day and night and he was there for us even when he was trying to take care of his small crying baby . Thank you Doctor Passetti for being there for me and my family in difficult moments alway with a calm and kind smile and god bless you and your family and thank you for being such a good human being 🙏
From the first day we met Dr Passetti, he was sensitive and caring. He is always ready to speak and to help, day or night, weekend or week day— and as such, compassion is his hallmark. He can appraise a situation very sensitively, gently speaking in such a way so that your understanding grows without you feeling threatened or insulted— a rare gift. I could not reccommend him highly enough.
I've been seeing psychiatrists since 2002 and only since finding dr Passetti via a recommendation this year have I started to improve. He has a gentle, open minded approach providing facts along with various treatment options and is caring and understanding but with firm boundaries. I am so grateful for him because actually without his support this year I dread to think where I'd be. Amanda
Meeting doctor Passetti was a great experience as it helped me to gain a much better understanding of my issue. He made me feel comfortable at all times and was able to find the perfect specialist for my specific issue.
I had a pleasure of meeting Dr Passetti at his practise in Harley Street. At the time i was struggling with a disorder i could not put a name on. I have seen a couple of specialists before , but unfortunately they misdiagnosed me, making my condition worse. I was afraid of seeing another psychiatrist again, but i am glad i did. Dr Passetti has given me a correct diagnosis and a treatment plan that had tremendous impact on my quality of life. He has also provided me with all the necessary paperwork i needed at the time. His professionalism was apparent throughout all my dealings with him. Overall, i felt really cared for as a patient. I will continue seeing Dr Passetti for an ongoing care.
Dr, Passetti has been the keystone to my recovery. He is always there (even on mobile) when I need him and has worked with me to create an ongoing programme of support that extends way beyond medication. He has a very gentle and understanding approach and I couldn't recommend him more highly.
Overall, my experience with Dr. Filippo Passetti has been positive. Coming from the US, I was originally worried about the care I would be receiving in the UK since I am not familiar with the NHS. However, it's been a pleasure working with this practice! Dr. Passetti listens carefully and has a genuine interest in the wellbeing of my health. Moreover, his team of healthcare administrators is easy to work with.
Friendly and understanding as well as reliable and efficient. Easy to get a hold of if problems arise.
Dr Passeti has been a god send to me when I really needed it the most. He actually cares about you and your needs. He has also helped to find me an excellent CBT therapist. Definitely recommend
Dr Passetti is an amazing specialist. Always there for the patients . He helps me through my difficult time of my life in a quick and simple way. I strongly recommend dr Passetti .
Dr Passetti was a great help to me at a time when I was really struggling with my mental health. He was professional, patient and compassionate. I felt very comfortable around him and we built a good relationship. He offered practical, constructive advice and was able to advise an appropriate plan of action to help me move forward. I felt confident trusting him with my care. Dr Passetti gave me the support and help I needed and as a result I feel much more in control in all aspects of my life. I cannot recommend Dr Passetti highly enough.
Hello, I have found Dr Passetti to be a very caring, considerate and professional man. He is always very punctual, which I find is rare in many healthcare appointments. I would highly recommend him.
I found Dr Passetti to be of great help to me. He listened and asked questions that I hadn't been asked before by previous psychiatrists. I was extremely happy with the care he gave me and his overall manner. Would happily recommend him to anyone in need of a caring psychiatrist
