It was really quick and easy to get a consultation with Berkeley Psychiatry Services. The consultation, Dr Ismail Bensassi, was very thorough and he made me feel at ease. I would definately recommend the Clinic and Dr Bensassi.

Dr Bensassi was great. Very incisive and intuitive. The process for ADHD diagnosis was simple and understandable whilst being rigorous. Highly recommended clinic and doctor.
Daniel A.
Dr Bensassi helped me through the required diagnostic questions, offering real-life examples to give me greater clarity. After reaching a diagnosis, I was given very helpful information on the various treatment options, including a thorough explanation of potential medications that could be prescribed and which one may be the most suitable.
Andrew D.
Dr Ismail Bensassi was kind, considerate and patient with my assessment. The results were concluded by both of us agreeing to his advice and my needs. He relieved me of all my concerns and initial anxiety. All his dealings with me were prompt, relevant and understandable. At no point did I feel alone in this process I felt fully supported.
Brenda Rodgers
Not a person who is particularly fond of writing reviews but my experience with Dr Bensassi was perfect. I felt comfortable and understood as being neurodivergent. We thoroughly went through my issues and Dr Bensassi structured and offered multiple programs and solutions to address them. If you're someone who is tired of the NHS waiting list and considering a private consultation I'd highly recommend Berkeley Psychiatrists. Don't wait, it's life changing.
