100/10 service!

After having been on a long waiting list, it was fantastic to find out that I was able to use the NHS right to choose to get my diagnosis, finally!It was pretty smooth and quick, after my GP sent the email within a few days I had a welcome email from PUK with all the information in the portal for me to get before my appointment!During the video consultation Dr Salwan Jajaw was very reassuring and made me feel very comfortable, listened to everything I had to say, made his questions clear and understandable even when I didn’t understand he re worded and carried on.After everything was done the nurse dealing with my medication was fantastic too. 100/10 service!

He listened to everything I said!

Dr Houssain was brilliant. He made me feel at ease and comfortable whilst talking with him. He listened to everything I said and made me think I am not what I thought I was and just that I have ADHD! I cannot thank him enough.

BC December 21, 2021

Extremely professional service…

Dr Chatziagorakis was caring, professional, understanding and explained clearly and supportive of my questions and queries. I am highly impressed by his expert knowledge and extremely professional service and i am so delighted that i was able to access an assessment through Psychiatry UK THANK YOU SO MUCH

EM December 10, 2021

He listened to every little thing I said!

Dr Pretorious was fantastic. He made me feel very at ease speaking with him, he listened to every little thing I said and gave me great confidence, that I will now receive the correct treatment. Cannot thank Dr Pretorius enough as I finally have the diagnosis I needed.

GR December 10, 2021

It was a relief to finally have an explanation for my problems…

Dr Adewusi was amazing! He put me at ease from the beginning and was very patient with me while I was tripping over myself trying to explain everything that was making me so anxious and the steps that led to me thinking I have ADHD.He was very kind, very understanding, very helpful in giving me the time and cues to find my words, and he was very polite and considerate without being stuffy. He adapted to my being somewhat rudely (unintentionally) direct, and I appreciated that he wasn’t rigid in his approach and therefore made the assessment flow very organically.He even called me personally to inform me of some mix-ups with the appointment (it got rescheduled twice), and explained and apologised even though it wasn’t his fault. I very much appreciated the hands on approach and his consideration.By the end, I was so relaxed that I even forgot that I just got diagnosed with a chronic mental illness! In fairness, it was a relief to finally have an explanation for my problems, but his attitude and bedside manner definitely contributed to the positive ending. And for all of that I am very grateful 🙂

CC November 22, 2021

Really easy and comfortable assessment! Dr Jayan was lovely and professional throughout! Would highly recommend. Thank you so much!

I really appreciated speaking to him…

Dr Sadiq was a top bloke!

Really warm and friendly, i found it really easy to talk to him and discuss my case. He was knowledgeable, thorough and patient, and I really appreciated speaking to him.

The admin team around him who contacted my via the portal are also really helpful; consistently keeping me up to date via case notes.

Massive thanks to all!

DW October 14, 2021

To say I’m grateful is an understatement!

I have struggled with my disability and mental health for years and years, the road has not been easy and after speaking with Dr Shahab Tamuri it feels like the final puzzle piece has fallen into place. I feel at long last I’ll be able to begin my life and it’s amazing to have my struggles validated. The knowledge shared through my assessment was eye opening and obviously very relatable. It was refreshing to speak to someone who actually understood! To say I’m grateful is an understatement as this has been a truly life changing moment for me, the service and communication I have received and continue receiving is nothing short of spectacular. A huge thanks to you all.

ME October 7, 2021

She was extremely knowledgable…

Dr Jayan was extremely professional, friendly and welcoming. I felt at ease throughout my entire consultation and was able to open up about my history. She was extremely knowledgable about my diagnosis and listened to my concerns regarding medication, which allowed me to be put on medication i was comfortable with. THANK YOU!!

KF October 7, 2021

Receiving a diagnosis has changed my life!

Dr Roberts made me feel at ease and his knowledge of the condition I sought a diagnosis for was in-depth and substantial. I felt he gave me the time I needed to answer questions and understand my concerns. Receiving a diagnosis has changed my life, many thanks to Psychiatry Uk for excellent care.

LC September 29, 2021

Within the first five minutes I felt at ease!

Doctor Adewusi was incredibly helpful during my assessment. By guiding and prompting me through the conversations, I was able to talk about all the symptoms I was experiencing in detail. Dr Adewusi was constantly checking in with me during the assessment, ensuring that he understood my perspective, which was very reassuring. Prior to the assessment I was quite nervous but within the first five minutes I felt at ease which I think is because the Doctor is also a great conversationalist. He paid great attention to what I had to say and I felt very comfortable talking about my experiences with him. Towards the end, Dr. Adewusi explained the next steps in a very clear and easy to understand way. I had enough time to ask any questions I had. Overall I had a very professional yet warm experience. I would strongly recommend Psychiatry-UK and Doctor Adewusi.

They always found time to help and offer advice…

Its hard to write a review without a hint of a back story. This is mine. Female, in my late 50s. I grew up when ADHD was less understood, especially in girls. No need to elaborate on the struggles of a life lived undiagnosed to fellow sufferers, nor how wrong I was, when thinking I might have ADHD in my late 40s meant life might get easier. Without the means for private healthcare, the journey to try and get help was sole destroying. The turning point was learning that I had the “right to choose” my care while still within the NHS. That was when I found Psychiatry UK. It was still down to me to get a GP referral, but the informed support and kindness I got from the team made me feel like “someone had my back “ and that gave me the confidence to push for the help I needed. I’m a little old, and life has made me a little strange, and undoubtedly difficult… but they took all that in their stride, even when I got frustrated or struggled to understand “portholes and tech” etc. To be diagnosed with ADHD was no great surprise, however the depth of care and respect given to me was great. Both Dr Jack Krysztofiak and Claire Meadows (titration nurse) were professional, knowledgeable, but most important to me they were approachable and pleasant. They always found time to help and offer advice. The treatment I got was tailored and carefully considered. Everyone I dealt with at Psychiatry UK was wonderful. I hope they all read the reviews, so they know just how grateful I am for the real difference they have made to my well-being. Thank you.

ME August 31, 2021

The wait is minimal…

I have been really impressed with the service I have received from Psychiatry UK. I can understand the frustrations of others with regards to waits to start titration, however, compared to using my local NHS wait time which is 2-3 years, the wait is minimal. I was diagnosed with ADHD by Dr Rawala and he was brilliant. I’m so glad I found out about right to choose and P-UK as it has made the whole experience a lot easier to deal with. Thank you!

AS July 7, 2021

Nothing short of outstanding!

Psychiatry UK have been nothing short of outstanding. I’m a health professional employed by the NHS so I have an idea of how services usually operate. I feel privileged to have received such an amazing, timely and sensitive service from both my GP at East and Hertfordshire NHS Trust (Dr Hanna, Burville Hse Surgery) and Psychiatry UK (Dr Rao). I know that I have been lucky because I was referred at a time when Psychiatry UK were less busy so my treatment was prompt and report accurate and timely, however, this is also direct testimony to Dr Rao, as these are her personal clinical practice standards. Thank you Dr Rao. You have changed my life

ND July 7, 2021

I am very grateful…

The doctor was very friendly, informative and helpful. He made the assessment straight forward and was very reassuring with me. I am very grateful for the service I received, thank you!

Anon July 7, 2021

I have finally been listened to!

The Doctor and the nurse have helped me get diagnosed and medicated and I feel so happy that I have finally been listened to and I am on a medication that works for me. Thank you both for your help. The service at P-UK has been great.

Anon July 7, 2021

It was easy to arrange a referral…

I was really impressed with the service and care from Psychiatry UK. It was easy to arrange a referral via my GP and i was seen by a psychiatrist fairly quickly – enormously quickly compared to local NHS services! I felt like they understood that the process of filling out and submitting the assessment forms can be difficult for someone experiencing difficult with their mental health and they gave me plenty of time to do this and were forgiving of delays.

Anon July 7, 2021

Completely changed my life for the better!

Psychiatry UK have completely changed my life for the better, yes I did have to wait a while to get through titration but my goodness it was worth the wait! I felt supported and listened to the whole way through my treatment and would wholeheartedly recommend.

Anon July 7, 2021

I finally feel like I have the help I need…

Not to be dramatic, but being able to access PUK via right to choose has genuinely been such a lifesaver for me, both in the literal and figurative sense of the word. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I had to wait for years on the NHS waiting list, or save up the cost for a private referral. Thanks to PUK, I feel validated in my struggles and I finally feel like I have the help I need to achieve my goals.

Anon July 7, 2021

Would highly recommend!

Psychiatry UK has been a great experience for me, from getting an appointment within a week to seeing a great psychiatrist and being informed of all updates quickly. Would highly recommend.

Anon July 7, 2021

I am hugely grateful!

Psychiatry-UK has been a complete revelation. I had always considered I had inattentive ADHD but the 2 year NHS waiting list just seemed an impossible ordeal. I was referred to Psychiatry-UK and my assessment was in a couple of months. I am hugely grateful that this service makes help accessible in a timely fashion.

Anon July 7, 2021

The online service is easy to use…

Great service, very timely and professional. Would recommend Psych UK to others. The Doctor was courteous and listened to everything I had to say. The online service is easy to use and makes the whole process very easy. All records and data are saved confidentially and you have constant access to your records.

Anon July 4, 2021

A great psychologist to work with…

Really conscientious and focussed on your personal circumstances in finding a personal solution. Very in depth in a short amount of time and really approachable. All round a great psychologist to work with.

AC July 2, 2021


I went into my ADHD assessment nervous as hell after a lifetime of never being taken seriously and having all my problems written off as “anxiety,” “hormones,” and just being “that Special kid with the Something.” Dr. Khan immediately registered this and took time to really make me feel at ease with him and the process, which I can’t appreciate enough. Everything was really straight forward, he allowed me time to formulate the useless chaos in my head into cohesive words to accurately get my points across, and when the interview was over, I was diagnosed well within the hour. Life-changing. Can’t wait to start treatment in the Autumn. Really does feel like the only way is up now. Thank you so much.

HW June 15, 2021

I am so happy with the choice I have made…

After years of wondering and not having the confidence to pursue a diagnosis I finally decided to do it but I was still worried about booking privately. I had no need to worry. Not only was the tech department quick to help when I had an issue with my online account but my Dr was so incredibly lovely and supportive I honestly couldn’t have asked for anything better. It was made clear that after diagnosis the way forward was totally up to me but all routes were laid out clearly and the advice given was very helpful. I did not feel at any point that I couldn’t ask questions and felt very secure. I am so happy with the choice I have made and can’t wait to continue with finding ways to help myself. I have even recommended psychiatry uk to a friend who is in the process of booking their appointment. If you are thinking of booking but are unsure I can only say it has been the best decision I made.

NR June 13, 2021

He gave me relief in my diagnosis and I can’t thank him enough!

I was recently recommended by my CBT therapist to get assessed for ADHD as my anxiety revolved around getting anxious around people thinking that I will say something stupid or come across as stupid, so I looked into ADHD and every single symptom just fit my whole life. I have always seemed withdrawn and could never focus, I forget important dates, I’m super unorganised (not good in my job role) and I’m very unmotivated unless it’s something I’m really interested in, my house is a mess because executive dysfunction is no joke. I have been made to believe that I’m lazy and addicted to my phone, but now I can accept that that’s not the case and my brain just lacks certain things. Dr Fayyaz Khan was very helpful, empathetic and very understanding. He gave me relief in my diagnosis and I can’t thank him enough! Thank you so much!!! If you feel that something isn’t right…do something about it, it’s worth a shot!!

LN June 3, 2021

I want to say THANK YOU…

I want to thank Psychiatry UK for firstly existing and secondly for continuing to provide an amazing service, despite clearly being an over-stretched service at this time. It is clear to me from the number of people being referred as adults that misdiagnosis, especially in females, is common and that the Government needs to be providing more options for timely referrals and diagnoses, with more education around what inattentive ADHD means. It has taken me to the age of 32 to accept that my brain is different and to reach for support for it. Being highly intelligent in some areas of life probably was the thing that meant people overlooked my scatty behaviour and inability to organise things without losing stuff or forgetting key things etc etc. Dr Bindman, despite being clearly restricted by time, was professional and empathic, providing reassurance whilst actively listening. I am only at the beginning of the treatment journey so i cannot comment further than the diagnosis, but I want to say THANK YOU.

CB May 27, 2021

I genuinely recommend Psychiatry UK to anyone!

The process of ADHD diagnosis was great with Psychiatry UK. Dr Yaqub had read and reviewed the forms I had filled out prior to the appointment, which meant I didn’t have to repeat anything and the diagnosis was a lot swifter. He spoke through everything I needed to know clearly to me so that I understood what was to happen now, and the next few steps. I feel confident with the help I will be receiving from him and Psychiatry UK following my diagnosis! I genuinely recommend Psychiatry UK to anyone!

JT May 7, 2021

Finally helped me understand why I am the way I am…

When yet another person said I showed many symptoms of ADHD back in July 2020, I decided to seek answers to the myriad questions which had been circling my brain since childhood. After doing my research, I decided to pay privately and book an ADHD assessment with Dr Jacek. The whole experience with Psychiatry UK was professional and Dr Jacek made me feel at ease from the moment I entered the online call. I was diagnosed with Combined ADHD, but Dr Jacek was clear to rule out other psychiatric conditions before he diagnosed me. I would have no hesitation recommending Psychiatry UK and they have finally helped me understand why I am the way I am.

AW March 4, 2021

I really feel like a new person…

My consultant has been absolutely fantastic, after a super professional and informative meeting, it was decided that I have ADHD! This came after years of being treated for depression,which I didn’t feel was right as it wasn’t depression! I was at first worried about the whole process,yet I have been made to feel very at ease,always being given understandable info about my diagnosis,I feel my life has been refreshed in the best way possible,I really feel like a new person,I will be eternally grateful for all the guidance and help I have received.

LH March 3, 2021

Changed my life…

Everyone at Psychiatry-UK is incredibly helpful and supportive. Their services are of very high quality and the treatment I received has changed my life. I highly recommend this clinic to anyone seeking help.

Lia February 22, 2021

Fantastic throughout the whole process…

Dr. Suresh Dasarathy has been fantastic throughout the whole process of my daughters ADHD assessment. His kind, patient and gentle approach with her enabled her to give him all the information he needed. He wrote a very detailed 9 page report for her after the assessment. I highly recommend booking an appointment with him. Thank you!

A-C C February 8, 2021

Eye Opening!

This was the most eye-opening experience I have ever had. Dr Major was the kindest man I have ever met and has changed my life for the better. Thank you so much Dr Major, you are my hero.

Clear and Upfront

I contacted Psychaitry UK around my concerns around possible undiagnosed ADHD. I was given an appointment with a doctor and an online consultation. I was anxious about the consultation however the doctor put me at ease straight away. He had already reviewed pre consultation forms I had filled out and garnered much of the information needed from those. He was clear and upfront and highlighted different possible pathways. I was then passed to a Nurse prescriber for a 3 month Titration period as I had chosen to try medication. The nurse prescriber was superb always answering my questions promptly, listening and adapting to any concerns I had.

Stress free service

Absolutely fantastic, Very understanding and stress free service, Dr Alexandros was so understanding and to be honest after only 1 hour on a video conference has given me a diagnosis that I have now done research on and has made absolutely perfect sense, A letter was written to my GP with a diagnosis and medication and treatment recommendations, I have since been to my local GP and finally the help I have needed for years is now getting put into place. A 1 hour consultation has been life changing, a big thanks to Dr Alexandros and all at psychiatry uk.

KH March 9, 2020

Very professional and definitely worth the cost…

I had spent practically my whole life with NHS mental health services resulting in very little progress to be seen. One session with Dr Montgomery in Psychiatry UK and I came away with a diagnosis and a medication plan, months later of taking the suggested medication I now feel more stable than I ever had and am so thankful.
Very professional and definitely worth the cost, my quality of life has massively improved thanks to their services.

6th February 2018 - Independent Patient Review from IWantGreatCare December 11, 2019

Very happy with the service

‘For anyone at all hesitant about using an online service to receive a diagnosis, do not hesitate whatsoever as this service has been amazing! After my initial diagnosis that was an hour long video call, a prescribing nurse kept in touch with me using their websites chat facility to see how I was doing and was able to answer any question I may having throughout my treatment with medication.’

I am delighted with the service.’

15th January 2019 - Independent Patient Review from IWantGreatCare December 11, 2019

Online or in person? 

‘My assessment was straight forward in person and very thorough with Dr Montgomery. I decided to take my follow up appointment online and actually it wasn’t really any different to the assessment that I had in person. I am absolutely certain I would have had the same service and outcome if I took my initial assessment online, but being able to try both video conference and in person I can state clearly that as a customer I am more than satisfied with the service, however it is delivered.’
