Thank you for your positive feed back. It means a lot to be able to help people in these difficult times. Best wishes Anastasia Rachmanidou
We had a very thorough consultation. Doctor is very friendly and knowledgeable.
The best doctor I have ever seen for my child, so warming towards my daughter and showed she cared and keen to help us. Took her time to explain things to us and came up with a plan after 2 years of suffeirng. Thank you!
I was very impressed with Anastasia Rachmanidou. She was very friendly, lovely to talk to and in my opinion extremely efficient. I felt very lucky to have had my appointment with her.
I really like Mrs Rachmanidou’s style of speaking and explaining. I find her very sensible and easy to speak to and she doesn’t belittle any fears or questions that you have for her. I’ve seen her twice and have been satisfied with our interaction and her treatment.
Our experience with Ms A Rachmanidou has always been nothing but 5*!! She is so thorough and helpful and I thoroughly trust her with the care of my daughter!
A really friendly and reassuring doctor. What a difference from the last ENT person I saw!
I found Ms A R to be so helpful when I met her. She knew exactly what was wrong and what I needed. I’m so glad that I went to her for a consultation as she was quick and efficiently put me in touch with the correct team to treat me.
She is fantastic!
Ms Rachmanidou was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable and explained everything very well.
She is clearly very experienced both in treating children and engaging with them in a positive way, so that they relax and trust her. As a parent, I found her explanations clear and advice helpful. I wish all doctors were as patient-friendly and competent.
Sympatheric and professional
Mrs Rachmanidou explained the possible cause of my symptoms and gave good advice. I will book a follow up appointment to discuss any further treatment. Thanks
My daughter age 11, had an appointment for a review of possible eat perforation and for hearing test. She had previously had grommets put in by Miss Rachmanidou and it had been a very positive experience. I have found Miss Rachmanidou very personable, she had a good rapport with my daughter, she was efficient and gave a full explanation of what was going on.
Ms Rachmanidou was absolutely fabulous with my son Sebastian and really put him at ease with her wonderful bedside manner. We were required to make a follow-up appointment and because Sebastian had had such a good experience on the first visit, he was less nervous about the second visit.
Clear and friendly advice/support provided
Ms Rachmanidou, was very polite and explained everything very clearly and precisely, and gave worst scenario so that we could make a decision whether to go on with the surgery, which we have decided to go ahead with. It was a very pleasant and good consultation and we felt very at ease
I found Dr Rachmanidou very proffessional and was prepared to explain and made you feel very comfortable and re-assured at every step of my visits and like to thank the Dr very much
Very knowledgable, quick diagnosis, ended up going in for surgery which went very well
We had a 5 star experience beginning from the initial consult in which we were welcomed, made to feel comfortable and the examination of our daughter progressed with thorough professionalism and genuine care and concern. Miss Rachmanidou made our daughter feel at ease and involved us in the treatment options once the diagnosis was made. She gave us information to research the condition as well as suggested videos to watch regards the surgical treatment options. When we came back to theatre she was approachable, and she gave us regular updates and kept us well informed of the findings during surgery, treatment plan and follow up. I would strongly recommend Miss Rachmanidou and compliment her for her caring and professional attitude.
Absolutely brilliant. A passionate professional who genuinely cares. Would strongly recommend for ENT matters. Many thanks again!
Courteous and professional service.
