Dr Ioannou has been incredible with our daughter who he first saw at 3 weeks due to an angry rash and has followed up since. In addition to being a stellar pediatrician in training and knowledge, he also has incredible bedside manners which puts worried parents at ease.

Dr Yiannis is a great specialist. He is our newborn baby private pediatrician and he helped us a lot with all the questions we have as a new parents and vaccinations. The most important thing which is for me, that we can write him directly with questions we have and get the immediate response regarding seriousness of our worries. He is very gentle with a baby and very kind.

As an American living in London, I sought private healthcare from Dr. Ioannou after the birth of my son. He advised on formula choice, diaper rash and many other new born concerns during the first 8 weeks of my son's life. Dr. Ioannou also administered immunisations and helped me understand how this compared to US vaccinations. He does a wonderful job of addressing concerns and summarising the information a new Mom needs to understand. His admin team is excellent with appointments and responding to any queries via email. Had we not moved back to the US I would have continued under his care.
