“…a massive thank you… for having patience and not giving up on me when others did”
“I have for a long time wondered why I respond, react and operate in a certain way…
It was therefore a huge relief to me when I was referred by my GP for an ADHD assessment.
The process was very straightforward. I met Dr Rathod for an initial discussion, during which she confirmed that there was sufficient grounds for a full assessment.
It was like a journey of self-discovery: as we went through the questions, examples came naturally to me, but I hadn’t thought too hard about it in advance…
…when Dr Rathod gave me the results, it was a huge relief. Suddenly I had a reason for all these behaviours that I had never properly understood
At the end of the assessment I reflected that it had been a really enjoyable conversation
The whole experience has been life changing and has given me a huge sense of positivity for the future.”
Dr Rathod pulled me back from the cliffs edge during a very dark period.
She took the time to understand my issues at a core level and came up with a treatment plan that was balanced, practical and helped me to embrace and experience the joys of a new addition to my family only a few days prior to our first appointment.
Having seen countless psychiatrists over the past two decades it saddened me that so many had become prescription pad physicians. Not in Dr Rathods case..
She possesses an ever present infectious optimism and treatment methodology that leaves me feeling inspired to push through the pain and difficult times.
Working with a physician whose desire to understand, treat and heal remains clearly resolute has helped me embrace and reconnect with what would have only a month ago been a terrifying world.
I cannot convey in words alone how grateful my family and I are for what she has done for us. Thank you Dr Rathod
“Talking with her about obsessions and anxieties has been extremely useful and given me confidence facing problems”
“I could not have been better looked after during this time”
“At one point it was difficult to see a way forward but with her (Dr Rathod’s) guidance we found a way and I’m now on the road to full recovery”
“The treatment I received from Dr. Rathod has been second to none. When I came to her I had no hope. She was very understanding and compassionate and with her help I have been able to love life again and see the beauty of the world at its best. Without her help and professionalism, I’m not sure where would I be today.”
“So much love for Dr. Rathod. She has helped me not only get through my hardest of times but helped me find who I am and how happy I can be “
I have a considerable history of depression and anxiety over the years and have found accessing secondary care Clinical Assessments very difficult through primary care due to patchy availability.
Throughout the consultations I found Dr. Rathod, attentive, professional, highly competent and a very personable clinician. She’s unusually easy to interact with and seems genuinely empathetic, committed and determined to assist the patient.
Indeed, she helped me with a myriad of coping strategies to be able to board an aircraft this summer after I was prevented from going on holiday, after a panic attack at the departure gates. After rebooking two months later, I was able to board and enjoyed my trip thoroughly as a result of her intervention.
She seems to go the extra mile. I highly recommend her for any other potential patients.
“CAN’T RECOMMEND HIGHLY ENOUGH”
