My baby son has been seen by Dr Ioannou for a routine health appointment and also some body skin rashes I was worrying about. He listened very carefully and patiently to all of my concerns and questions and he proceeded to thorough and careful examination of my baby. Explained and answered in details all of my concerns during the consultation. Dr Ioannou is very friendly trustworthy and experienced paediatrician and very caring and understanding as well. I left the clinic feeling satisfied with the consultation and reassured of my baby's good health. Thank you.
We felt listened with a lot of respect and the steps to investigate my son's problems and then the solution were very clear. Very good connection with my teenager son.
We saw Dr Yiannis in the middle of Covid-19 with all the extra stress that entailed for doctor, 18 month old patient and mum. He was warm, understanding and knowledgeable and gave us a clear treatment plan - I wouldn't hesitate to take my daughter to see him again.
Dr Ioannou was great. Kind with my daughter and reassuring, helpful and above all knowledgeable.
I was today seeing Dr Yiannis Loannou for my daughter Mia it was very helpful and very good I highly recommend it to anyone thank you doctor
I was looking for a professional, caring, and knowledgeable pediatrician for my son and I found Dr. Yiannis! He is clear, precise, and comforting. He also has a personal touch that I personally find essential when dealing with doctors especially pediatricians. I left his clinic feeling reassured. I would highly recommend him.
Dr Yiannis is really special. As a rather anxious mum of twin girls, I can tell you he has been fantastic. He is warm and kind, and makes us feel that we are in the very best of hands and has a way of explaining things that is extremely reassuring and helpful. Importantly, he also makes my children feel at ease too. I cannot recommend him enough.
Really easy to talk with, expert advice calmly and openly shared. Really reassuring and helped us make decisions on how to look after our son's health.
We went to see Dr Yiannis initially due to our baby suffering from reflux and allergy issues. He has been fantastic and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anybody looking for a paediatrician.
He is the most kind ,smart ,gentle doctor I ever met . He saved our son from Kawasaki disease and he is been taking care of our children since they were born . He is very reliable and professional.
Yiannis is a wonderful doctor and we wouldn't take our children to see anyone else!
Our 6 year old has been a patient of Dr.Yiannis' for over 3 years and I can certainly say that we have been extremely pleased with the numerous appointments we've had for a range of issues mostly related to flu and respiratory viral symptoms. Furthermore we have found Dr.Yiannis' office to be very responsive via e-mail and phone at times of need. In case the secretary is not there then Dr.Yiannis tends to respond rather swiftly himself, which is a great trait to see in the current world we live in where Doctors tend not to leave themselves with enough time outside of appointment hours to make contact with parents/patients. We recently saw Dr.Yiannis via a Zoom video conference, which I initially thought would not be an effective use of time and money, however I was wrong and the doctor managed to analyse our son, suggest tests that need to be done and issue the prescription we were after. To conclude we would highly recommend Dr.Yiannis as a truly knowledgeable and professional paediatrician.
My daughter, about 3.5 years old, was seen by Dr Yiannis for the first time during the COVID-19 lockdown. Everyone was wearing full PPE and it could've been a frightening experience for her, but Dr Yiannis and all the clinical staff we encountered were so warm and kind that she was completely at ease, and left with a very positive impression. Dr Yiannis is a great listener, was thorough in his exam, and gave both me and my daughter the exact reassurance we needed.
Dr Yiannis was welcoming and warm when he met my daughter and I for the first time. He was careful and considerate in asking about my daughter’s symptoms and then did a thorough examination. My daughter responded very well to him. Most importantly he then took time to carefully explain the diagnosis and made sure I could ask any questions that I had. He explained the treatment and the follow up very carefully. Overall very impressed and would highly recommend Dr Yiannis.
Dr Yiannis has been our son’s Paedatrician for the majority of his life. He is excellent. He is reassuring to us as parents, has a wonderful manner with our son, but above all clearly know what he is doing from a medical standpoint. He is able to differentiate between problems which can be advised over the phone or email, and ones which require further assessment. Furthermore, when our son had to have an operation, he recommended yet another fantastic doctor to us for the procedure - his network is high quality which is not something to be underappreciated!
Dr Yiannis has been my daughter’s paediatrician since she was born over 2 years ago and he is always friendly and very gentle with her.

Our scheduled visits to monitor our child's development have been very reassuring and insightful for us and we are very happy that we found a health professional that we can trust with our child's health. As a first time parents we highly recommend Dr. Yiannis.
Very happy with our experience with Dr. Yiannis. He was very gentle with my little one and takes the time (which is quite valuable to us) to go through the details with us and explain the diagnosis or answer our concerns and questions. The only downside is location as we live in south east london and it is quite a trek for us to visit Dr. Yiannis. I hope that he could also do clinic at London Bridge or Westminster.
I cannot begin to say how FANTASTIC Dr Yiannis Ioannou is. Our little boy was diagnosed with suspected sepsis and was admitted to the Portland Hospital under his care this week. Dr Ioannou was extremely thorough in his assessment of our little boy. Explaining what he was doing to him, in terms of his assessments, as he went along and in language that he would understand, so as to put him at ease. Dr Ioannou was compassionate with me (a neurotic lawyer mother), when I was crying in front of him and he showed complete attention to detail in terms of the blood results and the care that was to be provided to our son, as we were admitted to hospital, and during our stay. He also made himself available to us, 24/7, throughout our son's admission. In short, I cannot recommend Dr Ioannou highly enough. I wouldn't use another Paediatrician.
Very thorough, kind and caring doctor. Explains issues really well and listens and addresses concerns. Dr Ioannou was recommended to us and I’m pleased he’s my kids’ doctor!
I highly recommend Dr Ioannou. He was very thorough with our three week old baby and put our concerns at ease with a clear management plan. We were able to follow up over email and phone which was really helpful. He has a great bedside manner and is an excellent paediatrician.
We have seen Dr. Ioannou on a number of occasions since the birth of our first child in September 2016. On each occasion, he has shown himself not only to be extremely knowledgeable, but also very kind, patient, and possessed of an excellent bedside manner. When our second daughter was born in July 2019, we were in no doubt that we would register her with Yiannis, too. We would recommend him to anyone looking for a paediatrician.
I have taken my daughter to see Dr Yiannis twice (at 6 and 9 weeks old) and on both occasions I have been very happy with the care received and will continue to see Dr Yiannis for my daughter and son as needed in the future. Dr Yiannis is excellent - he is knowledgable and clearly experienced, he puts me (and baby) at ease and explains issues and guidance clearly and comprehensively. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Yiannis to parents looking for a paediatrician.
We are Happy to have Dr. Yiannis as a pediatrician. Our children are in good hands.
Our consultation with Dr. Yiannis was very thorough. He is very patient, gentle and caring. He referred our newborn son to a very good paediatric surgeon to treat his tongue tie.
We have been extremely grateful for Dr. Ioannou's care while our 14 month old was in hospital and while at home afterward. During a really stressful moment, Dr. Yiannis helped us feel calm and reassured that our son was ok and on track for recovery. Dr. Yiannis was extremely calming and patient with our multitude of questions. He was also really responsive over the weekend and accommodated a home visit for our little one. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dr. Ioannou for your little one's care.
