Awards and Recognitions

I cannot express enough how amazing and caring the ADHD centre have been with me. I have been under their treatment and supervision for 1 year+ ever since I have gotten my diagnosis with them.

I have only had appointments with Dr Kripalani which is why I can only reflect on his care. Dr Kripalani is amazingly attentive, thorough and considers any issue I bring from all angles – holistically, pharmacologically and evidence based. He will take the time to understand as well as explain until he makes sures that I also understand. He is always guided by me and the doctor-patient relationship feels very much like a productive working relationship. Dr Kripalani is worth every penny!

Nothing has been too much for the ADHD Centre – they have helped me and have gone above and beyond for me numerous times.

My quality of life has drastically improved. Choosing the ADHD Centre has been one of the best impulsive ADHD decisions I have ever made and I will forever be grateful to them. After having numerous traumatising experiences within the NHS and separately, I have finally managed to find the team of professionals who have listened to me, accepted me and genuinely made me feel like they care for me and they want to see me get better and lead a better life.

I contacted The ADHD Centre about 18 months after being diagnosed with ADHD, and feeling extremely frustrated to have not yet found a combination of medication that I was happy with. My experience with Dr Kripalani has been fantastic. For the first time in my life, I am now on a combination of medication that works well. Dr K is not only extremely knowledgeable, but also a compassionate professional who shows a genuine interest in treating all aspects of your ADHD.

I have had the amazing opportunity to be diagnosed and treated by Dr Kripalani.

I was absolutely desperate for help after years of suffering and feeling missunderstood, wondering what is wrong with me and not finding any answers. I have been dismissed by multiple healthcare professionals, however in my appointment with Dr Kripalani it was the first time I have ever felt like someone believes me and I am not, in fact, making any of this up. It turns out throughout this whole time I was struggling with ADHD, which is severely under diagnosed in women.

Dr Kripalani not only listened to every single one of my concerns, but actively sought to help me and involved me in planning a treatment which has drastically changed my quality of life. There were times where I would only say one sentence and Dr Kripalani instantly knew what it was (rejection sensitivity for example) , which are symptoms I have never heard of before. He would always try and find a solution in a holistic way.

I cannot thank the center enough and especially Gemma, Dr Kripalani’s secretary, who has always helped me and accommodate all my needs.

I am hoping that in the future, the NHS could receive any resources and funding in order to be able to put this kind of care in place,as it is much needed. I strongly believe that most healthcare professionals would like to offer this quality of service to each and every patient on the NHS, however they are limited due to the struggles that the NHS is currently facing. It is not fair on either patients or healthcare professionals and it’s time for things to change.
I have been lucky enough to be able to be treated by the centre. I wish all my fellow ADHDers good luck in finding a doctor who understands them and a treatment that works for them!

He is very knowledgeable and gives you a good insight into your issue along with what should be the plan of action. He gives you a chance to review all the different medication which suits your need and informs the risk respectively. Gives you the opportunity to decide which medicine you would like to go with.

Its very obvious that he has vast knowledge in ADHD, Anxiety disorders, Depression, personality disorder etc. He is very empathizing and works around your need.

Fantastic doctor will recommend highly.
