After appointments on GPs and years of wrong diagnostics from psychiatrists, Dr. Abdelghani was the first one that fully listened and understood the whole picture of the issues I was presenting. He went through a full evaluation from childhood to adulthood and could identify the source of the issues. He was clear on the path we should take and how it would improve all the concerns I had. I'm very satisfied so far.

Dr Mohamed is absolutely the best psychiatrist I have visited. Prior to my visit to Dr. Mohamed I have tried two other psychiatrists that could not resolve and understand my issue. Dr Mohamed was very clear with explaining everything I need to know and is very easy to communicate with. I couldn’t thank him enough for helping me find a solution to a life long problem.

I was dreading this appointment because there was a question of bipolarity and borderline personality. I am 72, with multiple other conditions, I was fearful of a new diagnoses. (I've known about my ADHD for 20+ years.) it took only a few minutes to realise that I was in a safe place. I knew he wasn't going to be a jerk or judgemental. That he understood a lot about ADHD. As we went through the session he was very good at explaining and also good at keeping the process (which is long) moving forward. As he could he would let me know when those potential diagnoses had been ruled out. He was also directive, which felt very correct. Friendly and persuasive. In the situation that felt right. He was a very good listener to an ADHD person. Quick to allow me to interrupt if I had more to ask, add or reflect upon. I know where I stand in the process with the NHS, my GP and my specialists. I know a good deal about the suggested drug and dosage. I also know plan B if for some reason I can't take the drug (drug drug interactions with other drugs I'm taking) or it doesn't work. I don't have a lot of money and he was very careful about that and had workarounds, within the NHS, wtih my GP, etc, for how I could save money. I learned a lot about myself. I wish I'd done this years ago. Very satisfied. Eager to proceed.

Extremely professional and polite, went through a complex psychiatric history and developmental history with care and detail so that it was both comfortable opening up to him on first meeting and allowed me to offer him the information he needed to make a diagnosis. He then explained the diagnosis, his rationale for making that diagnosis, talked through treatment options and helped me to make a decision around this.

Dr. Abdelghani is very clever and precise if you ask me based on experience. I started going to him when my other doctpr recommended him since we have a problem with the medication in our country Kuwait. He made sure that I really need the medication before giving it to me, and makes sure of any major side effects with the check up appointments, and he makes my time with him enjoyable.

Communication is always timely and concise, and I have never had any issues with scheduling an appointment. A great experience all round!

I am very happy with doctor Mohamed, his attention to detail of your issue is excellent! However you have to admit first that you have an issue, keep in mind doctor and meds are 30% of your way to cure, rest is your hard work with yourself and you have to want to cure, otherwise just waste of time and money. I am over the moon with his hard job and I am proud myself that I am getting there. I did research before seeing doctor Mohamed, found out that he is one of the best, and could state he is, if you have any problems with your mental help please do bot hesitate and choose doctor Mohamed, you will get over your bumps of your life! Good luck!

In the past 10 years I have been misdiagnosed by a dozen psychiatrists in 5 different countries. I was prescribed the wrong medication and I couldn't understand why, despite months of remission here and there, I always relapsed. Things kept falling apart in a cyclic pattern and I couldn't understand why I could not live a normal, healthy and happy life. The last time this happened again I went to see Dr Abdelghani. Dr Abdelghani is a brilliant doctor. He is very knowledgeable, professional, kind and caring. He listened to me carefully and understood the reason behind my difficulties. Now I also understand how undiagnosed and untreated ADHD can negatively impact one's life. The medication is incredibly helpful and I feel empowered to fulfil my potential. Psychiatry is a delicate field and mental health is key to leading a successful life. It is crucial to find the right doctor. I highly recommand Dr Abdelghani.

I can't even find words to express how grateful I am to Dr Abdelghani. I was feeling extremely hopeless as my symptoms made it hard to function, threatening my career and relationships, and the treatment I received via NHS was not very effective. Dr Abdelghani carefully listened and analysed my case, and arrived at a somewhat different diagnosis (which I have suspected for a while, but struggled to see a suitable specialist via NHS). He was very kind and understanding, had impressive amounts of knowledge, and explained everything in detail, reassuring me that my symptoms can be treated effectively. He adjusted my medication, carefully monitored the effects, and quickly responded to any concerns in-between appointments. Now my symptoms are gone! I can finally function again, with no side effects. I can't recommend him enough!

Very supportive and knowledgeable doctor. I would say through my 8 years’ experience of top psychiatrists in Priory and on Harley Street, the best I’ve met. I am very sceptical of any psychiatric medication as I have had years of bad side effects and health issues. Dr Addelghni has finally diagnosed me correctly and prescribed me appropriate medication and I am pleased to say after years of distress I finally feel I am recovering and enjoying life. Highly recommend especially if you have had bad experiences in the past.
