Dr Giaroli’s Values
I strive to offer a service of excellence in the neurodevelopmental disorders, specialising in ADHD and Autism Spectrum Disorder.
My clinical practice is based on current evidence-based research, including the latest clinical and international guidelines.
I believe that innovation and research must be brought to clinical practice in order to offer patients an up-to-date evidence-based service. Therefore, I am actively involved in research on medication for psychiatric conditions and the genetic aspects of several psychiatric syndromes. Hence my strong connection and involvement with Kings College London and University College London where I continue teaching and research.
During my time as a child and adolescent psychiatrist with the NHS I have seen many patients with ADHD, Autism and Tics and Tourette Syndrome drop out of the system at age 18, despite the continuation of their symptoms into adulthood. This is due to the lack of a strong transition plan.
My Harley Street clinic enables me to work with patients throughout their lifespan and offer continuity and expertise in the area of neurodevelopment. Therefore, I am able to help children, adolescents and adults, suffering from psychological or psychiatric conditions, improve their quality of life. I look forward to meeting you and discussing your individual needs or those of your child.
