I visited Dr Paraskevi Theocharis with my 6 year old son, following a referral from my GP who detected a heart murmur. My son was nervous about the numerous tests but was immediately put at ease by Dr Theocharis’ calm and friendly manner. Her explanations were very clear and she answered any questions I had. Communication was very thorough, clear and reassuring.

Explanation

I cannot recommend Dr. Paraskevi Theocharis highly enough. Our daughter's diagnosis was quite a shock to us however Dr. Theocharis was extremely understanding and explained clearly the diagnosis and treatment required. Dr. Theocharis spoke softly but pragmatically which is what we needed at the time. We felt safe knowing that our daughter was (and still is) under her care.
