Straightforward but reasonably sympathetic manner. Not helped by him confusing which counsellor had referred me. Still waiting for his diagnosis letter after 7 working days. Also my initial appointment had to be rescheduled after being made due to his prior commitments.

I felt the Dr spent a lot of time with me even though he was 30 mins late for my appt. I struggled to answer all his questions as I am finding my situation difficult so I’m not sure he will have got the best reflection of how I’ve been feeling and what I’m going through. This is mainly due to my difficulty opening up. I look forward to his recommendation.

Very amicable and understanding psychiatrist. Arguably the most competent psychiatrist I've had in my psychological treatment over the years, and I've had a sizeable number. He explained the temporal effects of my medication over the course of the day, illustrating so with a graph at the corner of my diagnostic notes. Super helpful specialist. Don't be afraid to book him.

Doctor Passetti is an excellent doctor, smart, caring, a very good man. He has handled my treatment so well and has made it easy and pain free. He communicates very well, always answering an urgent text or phone message quickly. At the beginning of my treatment there were a glitch which the good doctor sorted out immediately well beyond the call of duty. Calling my local GP and other health professionals to get what I needed quickly and hassle free. I was amazed at the level of care. I can't recommend Dr. Passetti enough.

My name is F.F. and I have been battling cocaine addiction for 18 years. 2 years ago I was introduced to Dr. Passetti and he took over my recovery regime. After 18 years of suffering and pain caused by the addiction today I am clean and sober and live a very fruitful and rewarding life. Dr. Passetti diagnosed me with ADHD and was certain it was the root of my addiction problem. I was basically self medicating with cocaine. Dr. Passetti put together a network of specialists under his watchful eye and as stated before today I am clean, happy and sober.
