What our patients say about us
“As a self-employed writer I had been struggling to keep focused. My output was far below my capacity and after a steady decline this began to affect my self-esteem. I suffered from depression, lack of motivation, and severe frustration. I had read about ADD so decided to be tested for it, and sure enough I was diagnosed as having a particular form of ADD.”
“I was referred to Dr. Maltezos who very gently began to explain his view of the condition. Although I was relieved that there was a reason for my inability to focus, I was nonetheless unsettled that I was, and had been for probably most of my life, suffering from this mysterious condition. Dr. Maltezos put me at ease with each session. He understood my thought processes and explained them to me. He listened to my frustrations and suggested tactics to deal with them. With great care and caution he suggested two or three medications, and over a few months we found one that worked - however, he always stressed that there was no ‘magic pill’ to make the problem disappear, only to assist. As I write it’s been a few months since I settled in to the correct medication and my life has transformed. I am more productive, more present, happier. Dr. Maltezos is not only one of the foremost experts in his field, but he is also a thoughtful, kind and wise man. I would recommend him unconditionally.”

"Dr Paliokosta was recommended to us when our autistic daughter's behaviour became highly challenging, and on meeting her we found her to be extremely knowledgable and exceptionally empathetic. We felt that Dr Paliokosta really listened to our concerns and took the time to understand our daughter's difficulties. She was very thorough in her assessment, and conscientious in following it up with regular reviews, which reassured us that our daughter was getting the best care possible. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dr Paliokosta to others."
