Lovely chap. Made me feel at ease when I was nervous. Great memory and recall for all the information I threw at him so quickly!
I have never met another health care professional in my life (& I worked in health care for 10 years!) so committed to the best care and health of their patients. The service I have been so grateful to reviece from Dr. Belda is over and above that I could have ever expected. His communication with me outside of my appointment via email is truly second to none. You are never unsupported and left to manage your own treatment, he is always there to help and advise. He goes to so much trouble to try and get his patients the best outcome for them, I am so grateful. I genuinely cannot recommend him enough. Thank you so much.
I feel very blessed to have found Dr Belda, he has the patience of a saint and can highly recommend him, especially in being an expert in Adult ADHD.
On visiting Dr Belda for my assessment I felt instantly relaxed,not only is he a fantastic psychiatrist he is also a lovely man and it was very obvious from the start that he loves his role in helping people,as s community nurse myself there are many people in caring roles that see these roles as a job then there are those special people like Dr Belda that out their heart into the role and more. I recommend Dr Belda as a top psychiatrist and gentleman and I have been every so grateful to have been 'listened' too and given such good care. Dr Belda has gone above and beyond what I expected from him and I'll be eternally grateful. You will honestly not find a better psychiatrist or more caring gentleman. Id
add lots more stars on than the 5 given if I could
Jose Belda is a Doctor, Dr Jose Belda is a Consultant Psychiatrist, Dr Jose Belda is also experienced in Neuropsychiatry, and I felt understood for the first time in a very longtime. He reminds me of the old family doctors that used to be about, they listened. they understood. they cared and were patient with me. He is very experienced in life matters. Jose help me so much, he added light to my darkness
I have sensitivities/allergies as well as a serious eating disorder among other issues /disabilities. I looked at other doctors to go to
they could not fully cater for issues i had and where not accommodating.
Dr Jose Belda offers a different approach to his consultancy- as recovery illness diagnostics and solutions is not a one size fits all model which suited me perfectly. Dr Jose Belda offices is
organized he is warm understanding and welcoming i felt at ease talking to him
he has contacts on brilliant private sector
health care professionals around the uk and knows the nhs inside out so makes you aware of how they operate and how to access their services also even helping accessing thoses services his communication was spot on and is what a doctor should be like the old style doctors from before who knew your full case history family history and recommended sensible solutions where the patient is first foremost.
I felt safe with dr jose belda unlike other establishments / doctors etc i visited
Dr Jose Belda is totally different and my needs where more than meet - highly recommended life changing doctor
Dr Belda is a brilliant, empathic psychiatrist. I saw him to see if I had ADHD. He takes a more holistic approach and looks at the bigger picture rather than just checking that criteria boxes are tucked. I felt totally at ease talking honestly about my life. I’m so glad we found through a friend who recommended him.
Not only is Dr Belda a skilled and competent Consultant, he offers kind and gentle counsel. I lead a very hectic life and am often abroad, Dr Belda goes out of his way to ensure any question is answered and advice given. I would highly recommend Dr Belda to anyone thinking about consulting a Psychiatrist.
I love the NHS - and am so grateful for it - however once I was referred to my local ADHD service I was told the wait list was over two years. I don't know about you but generally you go to your GP when you are at breaking point so waiting two years seemed impossible...
I found Dr Belda by reviews I'd seen on Facebook. His price is excellent and it included all four prescriptions sent to my house, a letter of diagnosis and a letter to my GP requesting shared care (so further prescriptions can be prescribed at the NHS prescription charge).
I was worried about a lot - for example if I had a problem with the medication would I be charged extra for contacting Dr Belda - and I can say hand-on-heart that he is available via email and responds quickly and helpfully any time. Furthermore I am confident if I suddenly started to experience an adverse effect he would help me figure out a path - be that next week or next year.
His expertise is incredible and being such a high-level NHS consultant you can tell you are getting such good quality of care. You can also see how much he cares for his patients and how kind he is.
If you think you may have ADHD then see Dr Belda- try medication and you may be amazed at how your life can change!
I almost wish I had more psychiatric problems so I could have another consultation as he is such a lovely person!
Deciding to go private and see Jose has turned my life around. I have suffered from treatment resistant depression for the last 6 years and have not been satisfied by the care given by the NHS. Jose is charming, friendly and professional. He put me at ease straight away and then proceeded to investigate my case in detail. He was confident he could help me and he did!
He is extremely reassuring and easily contactable and he goes the extra mile to make sure you are supported and get the right help.
I am so much better now and I am so thankful. Jose is one in a million!
I have been with Dr. Belda for a few months now. My depression and my condition has improved a lot and is still improving . Doctor Belda took time for me and analyzed my problem correctly. He suggested solutions that I agreed with.
I am German and I travel between England and Germany regularly
I have been treated by doctors for many years. But my condition has not improved much.
I just want to thank Dr. Belda in this way.
Very highly recommended. Wonderful Doctor and person. Goes over and above. I completely trust him and so far my treatment has been great. Really appreciate all the help.
I had been seeing my GP for about 6 years for Chronic Fatigue, IBS-D, severe insomnia and pain throughout my body. My GP was great but just didn’t have the tools to diagnose me.
The NHS was a 12 month minimum waiting list which I wasn’t prepared to wait with a child on the way so I searched for a Private Dr and found Dr Belda in my home town Redhill. We connected immediately, he is relaxed, professional, courteous and he obviously extensive knowledge in his field. In our first session he said I undoubtedly had ADHD primarily inattentive and started the treatment. He went through a treatment plan but took a few appointments to find the type and strength of medicine to fit the consisting. I am now symptom free (while the medication works), I’d describe it as the lights have been turned on... at long last!
We have been in constant communication, like others he’s great at following up to make sure I’m okay and never fails to respond to an email if there is an issue or question. If anyone is considering seeing Dr Belda I would say, he’s the best Dr I’ve been in the care of (and I’ve had a lot). Dr Belda has changed my life, something I’ll never be able to fully repay! The 5 star rating he has here is totally justified!
I cannot recommend Dr. Belda enough. So easy to talk to, kind and most importantly, knowledgable. Just one appointment with Dr. Belda has left me feeling like a major weight has been lifted, I’ve started on medication and very much look forward to my follow up with him.
Dr. Belda is a compassionate, thorough and thoughtful psychiatrist. I've had negative experiences with other practitioners so was especially relieved to find someone as engaged, sensitive and sympathetic as Dr. Belda. He truly listens, asks questions and takes as much time as needed rather than staring at a clock. Couldn't recommend him more highly.
Meeting Dr Belda was unquestionably a life changer for us. My daughter was correctly and quickly diagnosed by Jose as having ADHD. Dealing with a young adult with this undiagnosed condition is difficult to say the least and for her, her life was not as it should have been. Jose is the most sympathetic, understanding and non-patronising professional we have ever seen. He gives all the time in the world to listen, which is so very important when you are not in a good place. Words cannot thank him enough for helping and treating my daughter who is now 100% better than she was before we met Jose. Hers and our lives are transformed by the help this wonderful doctor has given us!!
I had my first meeting with Dr Belda, he was great, listened to me carefully and gave useful advice.
He changed my medication which has been helpful. He is very caring and I booked additional apointments.
I highly recommend Dr. Belda. I recently moved to the UK from Switzerland. There, I was attended by a psychiatrist. I suffered from anxiety due to personal problems in my family and stress at work. I used to visit this Dr. every fortnight, I quit after several months of treatment for I did not perceived a significant improvement. Soon after my moving to the UK, my situation worsen and I sought professional help. From the very beginning Dr. Belda was natural, kind and calm. I did not perceived a Dr- patient relationship. Contrary to my previous appointments, Dr Belda let the conversation move on without perceiving time constrains. At least I have not sensed it in my appointments with Mr. Belda. This fact is quite helpful and reassuring. He was also very attentive once I contacted him when I suffered a relapse. This is very reassuring as well. Due to him, now I feel much better. My quality of live has improved substantially. I highly recommend Dr. B
What else can I say.. he is an exceptional therapist. I have seen many therapists through my life, just when I think I know my diagnoses, Dr Belda offered new insight and knowledge. A million thank-you.
From the first day I met Dr Belda, he was sensitive and caring. He is always ready to speak and to help, weekend or week day. He can appraise a situation very sensitively, gently speaking in such a way so that your understanding grows without you feeling threatened or insulted. What I found very interesting and may be rare to find these days is that Doctor Belda is a real human before being a doctor as his profession. I could not reccommend him highly enough. I am taking my daughter to see him as well.
Dr Belda's calm and compassionate approach helped me enormously to gently look at the issues that needed to be addressed. I feel it has been a joint relationship of discussing my treatment plan which for me works very well. Although some adjustments to the treatment have been necessary I have definitely had moments of experiencing a more balanced connectedness with myself and the world around me than I have felt in more than 40 years, since following his treatment plan. This is quite an accomplishment, hence the 5 star review. Thank you Dr Belda.
My experience with Dr Jose Belda excellent. He was thorough in his assessment and it was obvious that he was very knowledgeable in his field. He was able to explain any issues in a very simple, understandable way. I would highly recommend him.
Incredibly professional and thorough.
I am amazed at the quality and insight of his work.
He is a man who truly cares and who wants nothing more than to help people.
I would be delighted to recommend Dr Belda!
I have experienced nothing but professionalism combined with a truly caring attitude from Dr. Belda. With ongoing support via telephone or email, I feel in good hands and can see progress in the treatment. Dr. Belda applies a holistic attitude in his treatment and this is what I was looking for.
Dr Belda was very good. I saw him for am n assessment and he was very easy to talk to and professional throughout.
Jose has been wonderful; patient, kind, experienced and dedicated. Jose took the time to understand my history,and to explain his diagnosis and discuss medication options with me. I would recommend him highly to anyone looking for help with their mental health needs.
I saw Dr Belda for an adult ADHD assessment; sadly very few psychiatrists are able to do them! He was very kind and treated me as an equal; he was also very helpful in educating my GP about adult ADHD which helped with the prescribing. I also found his flexibility with allowing me to try different forms of the medication that I was on to be really important. It can be very hit and miss, and its really vital to have a doctor who is flexible and client centred. I also think that clinically he is very sound and experienced. I'd recommend him to anyone needing to see a psychiatrist. It need never be an intimidating shaming or anxiety inducing experience. Dr Belda was able to put adult ADHD into a context and also highlight the characteristics that go with it, which can even be seen as strength based! It was actually quite life changing to be diagnosed. I'd recommend him highly; it' s been very helpful and positive.
I've always found it difficult to talk about things, not being able to organise my thoughts clearly enough to make any sense. Dr Belda takes the time to listen in a relaxed and friendly manor and with his passion and knowledge he understood me more than all my previous specialists put together. I look forward to seeing him again..
Dr Belda is definitely recommended for anyone who is seeking an excellent psychiatrist that cares for their patient and goes the extra mile. I have seen a psychiatrist for most of my 20s but stopped do to work relocating. As an expact it is difficult to find a good psychiatrist. Upon our first consultation I was assured everything will be fine and there will be brighter days ahead. Dr Belda didn't judge my issues or second guess problems that I was experiencing, he listened and discussed a plan of treatment. He didn't just stop there though. He followed up just about every other day to inquire how I was feeling/reacting to the medication and adjusted accordingly. It is because of Dr Belda know I will be okay and am in good hands.
Dr. Belda is great psychiatrist. During my visit, he was professional, personable, friendly, patient and non-judgmental. After my visit, he returned the documents he promised on time. I highly recommend him.
Dr belda has taken the time to help me something I haven't had in the past. .He has been reliable and always phones when he says. Even visiting me at home when it was difficult for me to travel to London
My experience with Dr. Jose Belda has been excellent.
Dr Belda always goes the extra mile, he takes as much time as it is necessary to listen to my problems (he is not the kind of professional that is constantly looking his watch), he takes his time to understand and provide the best solution, he follows up with emails between sessions and he always offers his help to assist with anything in his hand (for example he offered to write letters in case I needed to travel abroad). He cares about his patients and he is an excellent doctor. In addition he comes across as someone really nice, close and humble.
He is very knowledgeable and has an amazing CV and it is a specialist in ADHD in adults.
I totally recommend Dr. Belda and in fact is the doctor I always visit since I met him.
It was not until my late thirties, that I was formally diagnosed with ADHD. I was always aware that I had issues with concentration and being too impulsive. Contrary to many mis-held beliefs; I was not a terrible child when I was young, but I did not achieve my full potential at school. I have always worked in a professional job. Studying for these professional qualifications was very draining mentally, I was very competent at doing the work but learning the theory parts was hard. I eventually made an appointment with my GP and explained that I thought I may have ADHD. The entire consultation was a 1 line dismissive response. Her answer was 'You cannot have got to the age you are and hold a professional job such as yours and possibly have ADHD'. Being somewhat of a dogmatic person; I conducted some research and discovered some articles written by Dr Belda. They were eye opening. I emailed him and he rung me within a day or 2. I explained my thoughts, what the GP had said but Dr BELDA was most informative and reassuring. I arranged a meeting and have had help, medication, advice, interim checkups and the odd text, call or email from Dr Belda to check how I am coping – he has gone over and above with these check up emails or calls to check on my progress. An absolutely first rate service both in terms of my ADHD treatment but also his professionalism and just generally decent way with people. My wife, who is a qualified Medic, was present during the debacle of the meeting with the G.P and all of Dr Belda's consultations. Clearly she has a professional and informed view; and she states he is one of the finest Consultants she has met in her career. I have been under the care and treatment of Dr BELDA for around 7-8 months. I would say the help he has given me in the form of my diagnosis and treatment has been Outstanding. The most telling reference I can give is the fact that I recommended Dr Belda to a good friend who was also I need of help.
I saw Dr Belda recently with regards to Adult ADD/ADHD. He was very approachable and created a comfortable environment during my assessment. I felt relaxed and felt comfortable to talk about my conditions. As it was my first time seeing a Psychiatrist, I was unsure but I am very happy that I chose Dr Belda for my assessment.
I cannot recommend Dr Belda highly enough! He is friendly, approachable, and cares about his patients.
I was diagnosed with Bipolar II Disorder last year, and since then he has helped and supported me to come to terms with and to manage my condition.
At each of my appointments he listens attentively to me and respects my opinions, and at the start of my treatment suggested and discussed various medical options with me. My treatment is tailored to me as an individual and I am always confident that I am receiving the best advice. In between appointments, he always replies promptly and in detail to my emails, with a considered and well thought out reply.
From the first meeting with Dr José Belda I found him to be very approachable and friendly and above all supportive - therefore helping me to feel extremely comfortable and at ease in his company.
His thoughtful and understanding approach to my problems coupled with his extensive knowledge was very reassuring to both me and my partner.
I find José to be highly professional and caring. He keeps in regular contact by telephone and email closely monitoring my progress.
Having had Dr Belda recommended to me I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.
We are so fortunate to have found Dr Belda. Not only is he highly professional but kind and generous with his time, skills and knowledge. Dr Belda has an excellent, manner and is very approachable. We had an appointment very quickly and following diagnosis he has kept in touch to review progress and offer alternative interventions where helpful and appropriate. We have been very appreciative of his care.
José is friendly and understanding, after a few sessions he was able to advise and provide an appropriate plan of action according to my diagnosis. He also makes sure to follow up on a regular basis with his clients and is on hand to discuss progress and any adjustments as necessary.
Having followed Jose's advice over the last few months, I can attest an overall improvement in my well being. I would recommend him if you are seeking any type of confidential help or guidance in your life.
It is an honour to have been treated by this kind, thoughtful and understanding Doctor. I am grateful as my life has been changed for the better by his expertise in ADHD.
