"Our experience was excellent"
5 50Reviewed 05 Dec 2016 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Children's Health Consultation
Wayne treated our 3yr old son recently.

Our experience was excellent. We have only ever had positive experiences with Wayne and his handling of our concerns with our three year old son was great. Our son was anxious about being examined but Wayne dealt very well with him and won his confidence quickly. His initial diagnosis was very accurate and re-assuring. We followed Wayne's advice to contact him again in a week if symptoms had not subsided and at that point Wayne took full control of referring us to a specialist and organizing the appointment. The specialist confirmed Wayne's initial diagnosis which was comforting. Even after that Wayne checked back in with us to ensure that all was well. we found the service Wayne offered from start to finish to be first class.

Treatment Received: Stress Management
I went to Doctor Cottrell for some serious anxiety and stress issues I was experiencing. He immediately made me feel at ease and took time to listen to my story. I saw him a few times and each time he asked the right questions and really helped with my recovery. I would highly recommend him for his professionalism, knowledge and understanding.

For anyone based in Canary Wharf, this is simply the best clinic to go to. The staff is friendly and competent and you can see someone almost immediately when necessary. They provide all kind of services and are super efficient.

"Very happy with the level of service"
5 50Reviewed 16 Jan 2016 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: GP Consultation
I went to see Dr Cottrell for dizziness related to a previous fall. I found him extremely professional. He focused on the reason I was there and not on other matters like changing life habits which many GPs like to delve into. He was very thorough in his approach.
More than anything he is a really kind and nice person, non judgemental.
I can 100% recommend this Dr, he knows his medicine and his customer care is exceptional.

Very clean, easy to make an appointment and very friendly receptionist . I went private as it was near to where I work and whilst it was not cheap, I was very happy with the level of service. I left feeling reassured.

"Made me feel extremely comfortable"
5 50Reviewed 13 Aug 2015 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Sexually Transmitted Diseases Testing
I did several STI tests, including a full range of HPV tests, gonorrhea and chlamydia tests. I would absolutely recommend a friend to do these with Dr Cottrell and felt that the value provided was excellent.

There's a reason Dr Wayne Cottrell gets glowing reviews: he deserves them.
As a patient with OCD and anxiety, he was very attentive to my specific concerns. Before, during and after my treatment, I had questions upon questions that I needed answers to and he was always there to provide them. He is a consummate professional, very open and friendly, attentive, non-judgmental, and ultimately made me feel extremely comfortable in his presence - something that has great value to me. All of this also seemed perfectly natural to him; none of it forced. I cannot forget to mention that he provided excellent service and treatment throughout, ensuring the highest quality experience overall.
I have been to multiple private clinics internationally, and the service, care, concern and time given by Dr Cottrell surely ranks in the highest tier I have personally encountered. I feel obliged to recommend him to others.

"I can't recommend highly enough"
5 50Reviewed 07 Aug 2015 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: GP Consultation
I've been to see Dr Cottrell a few times, firstly for anxiety problems, secondly for a recurrent throat swollen tonsils that were beginning to make my life difficult, thirdly for a significant unbalance in my thyroids. It's not just about the value it's more related the whole service, companionship and experience. Dr Cottrell makes the difference in what a patient can expect from a physician.

I can't recommend highly enough Dr Wayne. He is not just a great physician who looks after your health, he also cares about your whole wellbeing giving you one of the most precious and value things in the world: Time. He listens your problems carefully and he strives himself to find out the best way out for you.
Because of my job, I’ve lived in 5 continents, but in all these trips I couldn’t find a physician like Dr Wayne. He is the best I’ve never seen or dealt with and I am very happy to have him as my GP. He really honours the Hippocratic Oath.

"Improved my well-being immensely"
5 50Reviewed 18 Jun 2015 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Men's Health Consultation,GP Consultation
I've been to see Dr Cottrell a few times, firstly for a swollen lymph node in my neck that was beginning to worry me, secondly for a significant vitamin deficiency and lastly for stomach issues. In all cases Dr Cottrell undertook excellent examinations and a variety of tests to get to root cause. Great value for money and reassuring!

Dr Cottrell is without doubt the best doctor I have ever had in my life (I'm 50!). He has an outstanding bedside manner, listens well, is very thorough and gives really good advice which has improved my well-being immensely. Blood test results are back quickly and he always takes the time to call you on the phone to provide feedback and often will sit you down and explain many aspects of the test itself which is very reassuring.

Above all of that he's a really nice and easy going chap and I would be thoroughly delighted to recommend him to anyone who is looking for a world class caring Doctor.

all kinds

If you are looking for a very good, very thorough doctor, who really cares about you, look no further. I was lucky to have found him 2 years ago, just before my pregnancy, and I saw him very regularly throughout and after with my son. He is great with children and has fantastic bedside manners. I highly recommend Dr Cottrell to anybody who wants peace of mind that themselves, and their children are genuinely looked after.
