Received my ADHD diagnosis with Joanna, she was very kind, comforting and informative. Would highly recommend, very professional while also maintaining a friendly and accepting atmosphere.
Anton Strover
Had a fantastic experience with Dr Woodger. She was very thorough, communication was great and all of my questions were answered. I was really nervous before my assessment but I didn't need to be, I was made to feel completely at ease and comfortable throughout my assessment. I had my post assessment documents next day & everything was explained to me in great detail.

Dr Joanne Woodger gave me the most insightful, patient and professional consultation. Not only did she walk me through the process during the call, but stuck by me after the diagnosis as well.
