Throughout the entire process from receiving my ADHD diagnosis to the end of my titration period, I have been completely supported and reassured by both Dr Pietrak and Paul Cavanaugh, who supported my titration period.
After years of feeling misunderstood and being confused about myself and how I process everything around me, I felt my concerns about myself were acknowledged and I was heard for the first time at 33 years old.
The difference the support I have received from both Paul and Dr Pietrak has meant more than I will be able to explain, and has improved my quality of life in every way possible. I couldn't be more grateful.
After hearing horror stories about years and years of waiting times, a lack of support, no availability of medication, I was really pleasantly surprised just how long the process has taken with Psychiatry UK. From the point of GP referral, to the closing of my titration period, the entire process has taken 11 months. I was advised I would be on a waiting list by my GP for up to 3 years. Psychiatry UK kept me updated frequently with where I was on the waiting list, and gave me an actual figure and how many patients were on the list. This was really helpful.
I'm incredibly grateful to Psychiatry UK. I would still be leading a very unhappy and unfulfilled life were it not for their support and understanding.
