Our overall experience with Dr Yiannis has always been very pleasant. He is very smiley, approachable and knowledgeable. When I am concerned or stressed about something, he is very calm and makes the patients calm and less concerned with his recommendations. He is also gentle and not only thinking about when the time is up and we should finish the conversation. Overall very lovely paediatrician and we are so lucky to choose him for our son.

Our experience with Dr Ioannou has been wonderful. He is gentle and quick with injections, and interacts beautifully with our baby. He provides the important information and leaves the floor open to questions, so it’s good to have written some down in advance. We feel safer knowing he’s our point of contact.

Extremely pleasant, informative, knowledgeable and calming. We took our new-born (10 weeks) to see Dr. Yiannis Ioannou. He was able to perform a full check up and is great handling/interacting with the new born whilst able to allay some concerns we had raised as new parents. I would most highly recommend him.
