Dr Kapellou is our 8 month old paediatrician. We are parents of 4 children and needed a specialist for our baby boy as he was born with a congenital brain condition that may affect many aspects of the child development such as neurological and motor development, eye impairment, organs such as heart and kidneys, hormonal imbalance etc,
She has coordinated our baby's care in an excellent manner through first a general assessment and giving priority to the most important issues first and at the same time ensuring that everything is covered.
Additionally after our boy's surgery in early June, he developed an infection. Despite several visits to NHS A&E, we were sent home every time. I decided to contact Dr Kapellou as he kept having a 42 degree fever for several days. We trust her and she advised to visit her. She immediately realised he was seriously ill and performed several tests. When the results arrived indicating probable sepsis, we had already returned home. Dr Kapellou prepared a message with the results of the tests for the doctors at A&E. She also supported me on the phone to assist with A&E doctors. She went above and beyond her duties to ensure our little boy was treated correctly and we can say she saved his life (as doctors in A&E were reluctant to believe test results despite kidneys issues and recent surgery and did not want to admit him)
Dr Kapellou continues seeing our boy and coordinating his care. She has extensive experience and shows a deep knowledge and love for her profession as well as genuine interest for the children under her care.
Dr Olga is very professional and experienced ...
I was very pleased to find her and meet her .
Will continue seeing her for both of my kids.
Our baby's height and weight was not increasing, we were really worried, we visited minor injuries unit and GP multiple times and they were all reassuring that there was nothing wrong with baby's development. We decided to visit Olga and she was Excellent, diagnosis was spot on, very friendly and compassionate doctor, recommended treatment works very well.
Dr Olga was very kind and professional. She’s an amazing doctor and answered all of my concerns.
Very caring and available when there is an emergency
Dr Kapellou is so kind, patient and reassuring. Thank you!
Warm, friendly, amazing. Perfect every time. So considerate, kind and professional. Thank you!
Dr Kapellou was exceptional. Truly kind to our baby daughter and truly considerate of all our concerns and questions. We felt very reassured and look forward to keeping our relationship with Dr Kapellou for many years to come.
Dr Kapellou has been our sons pediatrician since his birth (8 weeks prematurely) She has been excellent in tracking his progress and helping with all ailments from sticky eye, reflux, colds, diarrhea etc. I am very confident in her knowledge, approach and ability and recommend her highly. she is also always contactable which is invaluable!!
Dr Kapellou was great with the children, incredibly knowledgeable, and went out of her way to answer any questions we had following the visit, even outside of normal hours.
We would highly recommend her.
My baby girl had poor weight gain and was referred to a paediatrician. I did my research and came across Dr Kapellou and I'm so glad that I found her. Her service is personable but professional and thorough. she was able to answer every question that I had with knowledge, confidence and reassurance. My baby is usually weary of adults but absolutely loves her! Dr Olga, thank you so much for your expertise and your amazing service
Dr Kapellou saw my six year old. We were anxious parents and were immediately put at ease by her manner and friendliness. She directed loads of attention to my son and established his trust as well. The appointment didn't feel rushed, she seemed genuinely interested in our situation and her advice was spot on. I can't recommend her enough. We will continue to take our son to her for any future needs.
Dr. Kapellou is the most thorough doctor we have ever had and has been absolutely amazing with my 2 year old son when he was slightly nervous going into the doctor's office. She makes the whole experience more enjoyable and answers all my questions very clearly.
Amazing doctor with a personal approach and quick diagnosis.
We went with our lo as he wasn't feeding as it should and we've been told is acid reflux. Dr. Olga prescribed ranitidine and by the end of the day our lo was feeding and not crying as much.
I am so pleased I took my 11 month old baby to see Dr Kapellou. She was extremely thorough and attentive. Dr Kapellou has a fantastic manner and she really listens to you. For months I had been worried about my son's weight and lack of eating, Dr Kapellou's diagnosis was spot on and by following her advice he was a different baby within a day. I wish I had gone to see her sooner!
Olga was helpful and knowledgeable and gave us much better advice than our GP. She was also happy to answer subsequent questions by text message (which is what you'd hope for from a proper professional) and no push to come back for a follow up unless things didn't improve. Would definitely recommend her.
Dr Kapellou took the time to understand our situation, and based on her expertise she was able to give us a clear diagnosis and the treatment is going really well.
Professional, competent, reliable, committed and caring. Dr Kapellou stepped and helped our son with incrstigation, care and follow up.
She was absolutely brilliant. Very understanding and helpful with great knowledge and also the support is brilliant. Will definitely recommend her !
Dr. Kapellou is an amazing pediatrician. I have seen her consistently for the past 2 years and have found her to be incredibly knowledgeable and compassionate. She always responds to me promptly and addresses my concerns quickly. When my daughter had a 104 degree fever and I was scheduled to go on vacation with my husband, I was ready to cancel the trip. Dr. Kapellou assured me she would get better and that my mother would have direct access to her if she did not improve. Her fevers resolved the night before my husband and I left on our 4 day trip, just as she reassured us they would. My husgand and I were able to enjoy our holiday knowing that Dr. Kapellou was available if needed. Our family is so lucky to have Dr. Kapellou as our pediatrician. I don't know what we'd do without her!
We have always received the best care, attention and advice from Dr. Kapellou for our baby daughter. She is extremely professional and kind. She is always available, every time we needed to see her or seek guidance/advice with any concern or doubt. We would definately recommend Dr. Kapellou to other parents.
Dr Olga was just perfect. My daughter liked her a lot even though she gave her an injection! She took the time to go through things thoroughly with me and allayed my concerns.
Dr Olga Kapellou is an excellent professional, very knowledgeable, advised us on a very serious illness for our son and has ensured she followed him up to his full recovery. She is up-to-date with state of the art medical knowledge and very approachable with both children and parents. We would not hesitate to recommend Olga to anyone who would like first class paediatric care for their children. She has also expertise in neonatology and we are looking forward to having her as our doctor for our imminent new arrival in a few months for the regular neonatal checks. Dr Kapellou has been there for us at the end of her phone and answered any question we might had and eased our anxiety. We hope she can increase her time at the Shard clinic so South London can benefit from such a great paediatrician. A credit to her profession. Thank you.
Dr Kapellou has been my daughter's paediatrician for the past 8 years. She's exceptionally good with children, my daughter trusts her and always looks forward to seeing her. She's very professional, meticulous, patient and caring, always has time to discuss/explain to the child and/or the parents. She's always been spot on with her diagnosis and balances well risk versus treatment (i.e. doesn't over- or under- prescribe/treat). I would recommend her undoubtedly.
We saw Dr Kapellou after our 14 month old daughter developed very high temperature for 3 days, was in a very poorly state and our GP could not pinpoint the cause.
She arranged to see us in the same afternoon of the day we requested an appointment, she called us to discuss any immediate concerns and gave us her mobile number to contact her should our daughter's condition deteriorate before our appointment.
When we saw her, she immediately told us that her condition seemed somewhat serious and arranged for her to have a chest x-Ray. Despite our late afternoon appointment, she waited for the results and once she confirmed that is was a chest infection she arranged for us to be admitted to the Harley Street Clinic for treatment and we saw a tremendous improvement to her condition within 24 hours.
Throughout our dealings with her, she never seemed rushed, she took time to explain the situation and she handled our little daughter in a very patient and considerate manner.
We would unreservedly recommend Dr Kapellou to anyone with a medical concern regarding their children.
We needed a pediatrician to avoid having to run to A&E every single time our little boy is unwell so we registered with Dr Kapellou. The check up was very thorough and she made our little one feel completely at ease, there was no clock watching and she showed full interest in our previous experiences/issues giving precious advice on vaccination and allergy testing.
Dr Olga is a genuinely caring and compassionate doctor. I had two appointments with her when my daughter was first born and in between appointments, she was always on hand to answer my questions over the phone or on email (and was also very quick to respond). It really helped me as a first-time mother to feel that I had an expert on hand to support me with any questions or issues I had. She also followed up with me unprompted to check on how my daughter was doing. All round a lovely lady indeed!
We have been taking our son to Dr Olga Kapellou since he was born. She is always available and always responds to our email or call queries. Dr Kapellou is very flexible with accommodating appointment times. No other Dr is willing to make themselves that available and when your kid is not well and you don't want to wait to have them seen by a doctor. Dr Kapellou has always provided the best advice and answers, keeping our son off of medication when it wasn't necessary and fixing the problem with the first diagnosis. Her instincts are spot on and we have every confidence in her diagnosis. We feel fortunate to have found such a lovely paediatrician and we highly recommend Dr Kapellou to parents.
great service and personal approach , our kids love olga
Olga is an amazing doctor! She has been the peaditrician of our two children for 6 years now and we wouldn't go anywhere else. She is very knowledgeable and very very calm, which is such a lovely trait for a pead. Her advice has never failed us and we've always felt that our little ones are in great hands. I always recommend Olga to friends and family who have children. Its a shame that we don't live in London any more but we still do contact Olga and ask for her opinion as we trust her so much.
Olga has been the paediatrician of our premature MCDA twins since birth.
Extremely knowledgeable, caring, good listener and understanding she makes you feel 100% confident that you're getting the best treatment and course of action possible. She's very thorough in her assessments and always explains the thinking behind her decisions.
From simple vaccines up to complex development assessments, she is by far the best doctor our children could have had. We are all extremely grateful for the level of care and attention she has provided us all these years and for making us feel safe knowing that even when she's busy, she will find time to assess our kids in a very friendly and gentle way which is why they both love her as she genuinely and above all cares about the well-being of her little patients.
In a nutshell, I can't recommend her highly enough and she's always the first name I mention when I hear someone is looking for a trustworthy and caring paediatrician or neonatologist.
Olga has been my daughter's paediatrician for a year. During this time, we have seen her for routine visits as well as some urgent, short notice calls to which she responded very promptly. Her communication skills are excellent and always manages to explain the steps to take in simple, efficient ways. Her advice is accurate and well thought and her approach to our little one always very gentle and patient.
I met Dr. Kapellou in a very tough period for my 6 y.o. son, as he developed a very severe allergic condition from unknown causes. I was very disappointed of all the other Dr we were visiting for more than 3 very painful and dramatic days, when we got the appointment with Dr. Kapellou. She was very thorough, very professional, offered complete explanations and tried hard to consider all implications and all potential triggers of my son's condition. Even if she was very busy, she was very patient with my son, who turned to be very difficult and non-cooperative when we had to take blood-tests.
She was kind enough to get instantly involved an allergist Prof. Dr. to calibrate with him the recommended treatment and next steps. She brought the allergist Dr. on board to my son's condition very professionally and that was of a very big help for us, saving precious time for us, efforts and money.
I warmly recommend Dr. Kapellou's services and I am grateful that I had the chance of meeting her.
I met dr Kapellou when I had my first son in 2013 and I have to say the quality of care and level of professionalism we received is way above standard.She is very thorough,detailed and personable with every visit,phone call or email and my children always feel safe and rested around her.I cannot recommend her highly enough!
