    Excellent:
    I had not seen this doctor before and after being seen by a consultant for over twenty years at York District Hospital, this is the first time that I have been treated with care and consideration, his bedside manner, attention and concern was exemplary, I hope I see him again !!!!!

    Could be improved:
    Nothing, first class consultant.

    Questions from patients

    Question about Epilepsy

    Can seizures in a teenager be related...

    Can seizures in a teenager be related to breathing problems, persistent nasal congestion and associated poor sleep?
    Giles Elrington Neurologist Colchester
    Sleep apnoea is worth considering because of the breathing problems, nasal congestion and poor sleep. Sleep apnoea can sometimes cause attacks that may be mistaken for epileptic seizures. Epileptic seizures are sometimes triggered but are not caused by poor sleep. Seizure is a problematic word: it is important to distinguish seizures caused by epilepsy, from other causes of what looks like seizures.

      An impressive appointment. Extremely thorough. Not afraid to give a reasoned and confident diagnosis. Lovely sense of humour. Very grateful for direct information, even posted me his findings as supplied to my GP.

    • Location: Medical Practice

      My daughter booked an appointment with Dr. Elrington in complete desperation after 17 months of pain that were disabling her. Dr. Elrington is polite, gentle, assertive, with an extreme care for patients, knowledgeable, immediately sorted everything and prescribed a complete treatment. He is charming, with a wonderful sense of humour, and I recommend this genius to anyone looking for the perfect Neurologist. No one gest even near his wisdom! He does a thorough follow up and he is always availabl
