We were In great hands with Olga. We were so worried about my son and she listened to our concerns and made sure we were always fully informed. She went out of her way for us to be seen on the same day by a neurologist and instructed different scans to be performed quickly. She gave us her personal contact details and when I did have a question she responded immediately, you really felt looked after! Couldn’t ask for a better doctor!

We visited Olga with our 9 week old baby who we felt was suffering but the GP, health visitors etc. didn't seem to take seriously. Olga's diagnosis of our baby's dairy allergy was spot on. In the months that followed we noticed an improvement in all the parameters of our baby following the change in formula and medication. We continued to visit Olga where we always found her to be very helpful, approachable and a pleasure to engage with. Olga also replied to our emails promptly which was greatly appreciated.
