    Dr. Dayo Ajayi-Obe is a senior consultant general paediatrician with an interest in paediatric infectious diseases. She offers conventional face-to-face consultations but also offers the options of video and telephone consultations, enabling parents and patients to consult with her in the comfort of their own homes in some instances and at a reduced fee.

    In addition to her paediatric qualifications in the UK, she also has the Fellowship of the West Africa College of Physicians (Paediatrics), having completed a dissertation on cerebral malaria, hence her interest in travel medicine and tropical diseases.

    In 1998 Dr Ajayi-Obe completed a Masters of Science degree at Harvard University in Epidemiology (the branch of medicine that deals with research into distribution and causal factors for health related states including diseases and the application of this study to the control of diseases and health problems).

    Dr. Dayo Ajayi-Obe was instrumental in diagnosing my daughter's serious health conditions. She was diagnosed with Asthma, Anxiety, and then suffered a near heart attack. She also inhereited high cholesteral from her father's side of the family. Dr. Dayo ensured she saw the right experts, had the appropriate and immediate tests conducted. She also talked to my daughter about some psychological issues, and referred her to a psychologist for her to speak to. Dr. Dayo also got her to see a paediatric heart Doctor at the Harley street clinic. She has been consistent and proactive in her follow ups, very much so. She has spent a lot of time with my daughter, and I must say, she is one of the best Doctor's my daughter has ever seen. She is also just a pleasure to be around, and I know my daughter finds it easy to speak to her. I can't recommend her enough, words escape me. Both my daughter and I will be eternally grateful for everything she has done to help get my daughter healthier and happier. I don't believe there is a better Childrens' Doctor than Doctor Dayo. No question. And just a lovely, patient person as well
