Our experience with Dr Alexandrou could not be more positive: he’s for sure the most knowledgeable, professional, caring and kind doctor we could wish to meet (and I work in the sector, so I have personally met many doctors)! He’s been looking after our two little ones with extreme competence and love, and we’ll be eternally grateful for what he’s been doing with our 10 months old son who underwent surgery soon after being born. Dr Alexandrou was able to make a very difficult diagnosis and treat him promptly! We couldn’t wish for a better pediatrician!!!
