I work very closely with Dr Ilia Bountouni in both the NHS & the private sector. Dr Bountouni is a knowledgeable psychiatrist who is able to put patients at ease & ensures that she has a very good understanding of their problems before agreeing a comprehensive treatment plan with them. Dr Bountouni is highly skilled in diagnosing different mental health problems & in using medications in addressing these difficulties. I would recommend Dr Bountouni to patients who are looking for a trustworthy & diligent psychiatrist.
