    I saw Dr Losseff for an initial consultation and had a very positive experience. He was very kind and calm in his manner, which helped put me at ease and feel reassured. He took the time to hear my perspective and was very thorough in his questioning to understand the symptoms I have been experiencing. He then gave me some insight into his impression and referred me for further tests and treatment. As a fellow health professional, I understand the importance of having a positive experience and I would 100% recommend him to my friends and family (hopefully they will not need it though!). As a side note, Silvie, Dr Losseff's PA is also incredibly responsive and helpful. Thank you both!

    My experience with Dr. Nick Losseff was absolutely excellent. Prompt, explaining in very easy to understand terms. The results of the treatment amazing, my twoenty-year-old headaches migraine just gone. I wish my GP and other specialist treated me man years before instead of prescribing stronger pain killers. Years of suffering for no reason until Dr. Losseff's treatment. Furthermore, Dr Losseff's pa Silvia was and is also amazing. Prompt response, organising scans promptly providing answers to all my enquiries, pure excellence!

    My wife was diagnosed with a stroke, and was reviewed initially by Dr Losseff at Queen Square. This was under NHS, and based up on his knowledge and bedside manner, I felt further review was needed as soon as possible to ensure the best recovery for my wife. We decided to utilise private services, and I have not been disappointed. Dr Losseff and his secretory (Silvie) are absolutely amazing...I expect the highest standards and Dr Losseff and Silvie have provided the best care, and my wife is recovering well thanks to them. Thank you both.

    I have been a patient of Dr Losseff for some 12 years. His manner is very relaxed and soothing which helps me to relax and co=operate during his very thorough examination and questions. He always makes me feel great at the end of each annual check up telling me how well I am doing which gives me the determination to carry on and live with my medical condition (Parkinsons) and makes me confident that altough I won't beat it, it won't beat me. He is always available for a meeting, and if he is not in agreement with something I suggest he will politely tell me so. I consider myself lucky I was referred to him.....

    Dr Losseff was absolutely wonderful in diagnosing my condition. He has an exceptionally good bedside manner and quickly put me at ease. He reviewed my relevant clinical history in great detail and several issues fell into place which had clearly been underlying for years. The treatment in terms of supplements has been incredibly beneficial. I am extremely grateful to Dr Losseff for his expertise. He is incredibly easy to talk to.

    I do not leave a lot of reviews generally about doctors as I am not easily impressed especially with NHS service as I have and expect high service standards which with NHS are non existent, but I had to write in to say how impressed I have been from the moment I enquired to book an appointment with Dr Nick Losseff, his secretary Ayla who is super efficient managed to get me an appointment in days, when the NHS waiting time was in excess of 6 months. Dr Losseff was great in listening to me explaining my symptoms and account, and explained the diagnosis in layman terms so it all made sense to me. Extremely professional and knowledgable, he has put me in touch with a top osteopath and this all rounded service is already helping me get better. With immense gratitude

    Dr Losseff was recommended to me by a professor of neurology. His secretary was easily accessible, professional and accommodating. As a clinician myself, I felt very reassured having seen Dr Losseff; he is experienced, knowledgeable and has an excellent bedside manner. His explanation of the diagnosis was very clear as was the plan for investigation and ongoing management of my condition. I was especially pleased given how quickly the investigations were conducted (some even on the same day) - a stellar service I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.
