    "Eirini is a colleague that I work with very closely. She looks after a huge cohort of U.K. patients that suffer with polycystic ovarian syndrome and contributes to caring for people that have different complaints regardless of their hormonal presentations. She shows compassion and demonstrates diagnostic talent, she is flexible with her approaches to ensure they fit people that wish to try different treatments and never gives up when issues arise. She is committed to her specialty, knowledgable and has a bedside manner that people always feed back on with great praise. I recommend her service and care wholeheartedly. "
