This was my first time seeing Dr. Cikurel and I was really impressed with how smooth and easy the whole process has been (I have had around 5 appointments overall including tests), in what can often be a very worrying and unsettled time for patients. I was put at ease straight away by her extremely professional and comprehensive consultations. She also strikes a wonderful balance of not only being a great consultant from a clinical perspective, but she also adds the human touch to her consultations, which made me feel supported (and calmer) throughout - you can really tell how much Dr. Cikurel cares for and is invested in the well-being of her patients. Her secretary, Lauren, is extremely responsive and efficient, meaning that the scheduling and organising of appointments and tests was seamless and easy with no stress involved. I would recommend Dr. Cikurel to everyone as I felt I was in the best hands possible.
Dr. Cikurel is extremely warm and caring. In a very difficult moment as being diagnosed with brain tumour she has been the light we needed. Most doctors didn’t know how to cheer me up, while dr. Cikurel infused a sense of hope and happiness as soon as we talked to her. She is the love we needed in this difficult journey
Excellent and caring. Reassured me she was available should I need more advise.
Very knowledgeable, attentive and understanding. Taking the time to get to the crux of the issue, and look to practical solutions to overcome. Fantastic service.
I am very happy and satisfied with care and treatment I have received from Dr Cikurel. I have asked her to continue being my Dr. Even that I am leaving UK.
Both my wife and I are patients under Dr Cikurel for different reasons. My wife has a complicated and difficult set of symptoms at the moment, which has taken a lot of investigation, and Dr Cikurel has been incredibly kind and helpful, and put a lot of time and effort in to trying to understand what is wrong with her. We are finally starting to see improvements following Dr Cikurel’s treatment plan. I saw Dr Cikurel originally for epilepsy, and she helped me adjust medication to get some new seizure symptoms under control, and is now helping me with migraine/headaches. She has been thorough in investigations and very helpful in trying to find resolutions. And maybe most importantly, she is very kind and personable. I can’t really recommend her highly enough.
Dr Cikurel is a lovely lady and a top doctor. She has been fantastic with my daughter, so kind and explained everything to us so clearly. She was very understanding and so kind with her time.
Dr Cikurel is a very kind and understanding doctor. Her bedside manner is excellent and I would highly recommend her.
Dr Cikurel gave me more time to my potentially very distressing situation than I could have possibly imagined. Her technical brilliance is coupled with a genuine caring manner - a winning combination.
Suffering from seizures is an extremely unpleasant and dangerous illness. When I have one then mentally it can put me in a bad place for weeks and it can be a struggle. We all want to be normal. In order to help me deal with my condition, it makes an enormous difference to me to take advice from a top Consultant who is so easy to communicate with. Dr Katia is friendly, informal but has detailed and extensive knowledge. She is the best Consultant I have ever dealt with. This gives me the security and self-confidence to understand that I can always deal with the illness and that I am not alone. The help that Dr Katia gives has been hard to find over the years. It is liberating after 50 years (since early childhood) of struggling with Epilepsy to know that emotional intelligence combined with first rate knowledge is available! Up to now I have dealt with well meaning consultants but who have poor communication abilities. The long list of qualifications and professorships after their names is of no help to me. Dr Katia - please keep up the good work! St.John
