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.

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.
