Awards and Recognitions





We highly recommend the ADHD Centre, especially Dr Balogun.

From the moment we found (google search) and contacted the ADHD Centre we have been impressed by the level of service received.

Our son was diagnosed and on medication within 2months of us reaching out to the ADHD Centre. Had we waited to do this locally on the NHS it could have taken up to 3years just to receive a diagnosis, this was not acceptable to us as our son was really struggling at school.

Dr Balogun has a wonderful happy demeanour, not only is he incredibly supportive to his patients, but to us parents too, it can be hard coming to terms with any diagnosis relating to our children.

Our son adores Dr Balogun who is extremely friendly, warm and empathetic. He soon quickly warmed to Dr Balogun, who helped him relax, by engaging him throughout the whole process and explained all the details about ADHD in a manner a 9-year-old could understand. This included Dr Balogun’s explanations of how the medication would help his brain, as well as help him be able to focus which would help him feel much happier daily. Throughout the entire process Dr Balogun engaged our son helping him to feel empowered in the decisions made about his treatment plan and medication decisions.

Although going private costs more, it has been money well spent as our son is in a much better place now, and his work at school is now starting to improve. He does not feel left behind and comments on how he now enjoys school and learning. He is much calmer at school and at home and he finds it much easier to focus on all types of tasks and complete those tasks where he was extremely scattered before. All of which makes him more confident, happy, and peaceful both at home and at school.

Thank you, Dr Balogun and the ADHD Centre, for what you have done to help our son. We deeply appreciate all you do to help kids find their confidence and their true selves.
