    Quite simply, the first year of my sons life would have been considerably different had we not fortunately been under the care of Dr Maalouf. I can't thank him enough for what he has done for our family. At 4 weeks old he diagnosed him with a cows milk intolerance and also reflux which was severe enough that he dropped a concerning amount of weight. Despite us being in the midst of lockdown (which made the situation ever more stressful as a new parent), Dr Maalouf guided us every step of the way with regular Zoom appointments and ensured we had the right medication and support to ease his symptoms. The level of care he gave to all of us I think is unparalleled. Any concern we have he is on hand to discuss. The outcome is a very happy healthy little boy. Without Dr Maalouf, I am not sure where we'd be!

    I have been taking my two sons to Dr Maalouf for 5 years now. He has a lovely manner with parents and children alike. He makes sure you don't worry about the small stuff and wouldn't order tests or medication unnecessarily. But, if there is a significant health issue (which, given his experience, he spots immediately), he takes it very seriously and makes sure he gets to the bottom of it. A great name for your little black book.

    Dr Maalouf has treated both my children for the past 12 years and I don't know where we would be without him. I have absolute faith and confidence in him and I would not hesitate to recommend him. He has a wonderful bedside manner with both parent and child and really knows his stuff. He is a wonderful doctor.

    We were finding it very hard seeing our child suffering from severe reflux. Our GP kept changing his formula and treatment plans, none of which worked. The baby was unhappy, and we were heartbroken to see him suffering. We were recommended to arrange for him to see Dr Maalouf. We felt reassured by Dr Maalouf from the outset. He changed the treatment plan, explaining his decision to us. He told us what we would happen over the next 10 days, all of which was correct. Our son saw benefits within a week and is a very happy baby now. Dr Maalouf is very kind and reassuring. He put us at ease from day one and for any parents struggling with a baby suffering from reflux, our advice is to see Dr Maalouf.

    Dr. Maalouf is a highly regarded paeditrician - his warmth and understanding allows for an excellent rapport to develop with his patients. His bedside manner is excellent and children instantly feel at ease with him, while parents feel reassured by his professionalism, knowledge and clarity of explanations. I have referred my patients' children to Dr. Maalouf and have consistently received positive feedback. I have turned to Dr. Maalouf when my son was experiencing health difficulties and have been extremely grateful for his input and medical suggestions. I wholeheartedly recommend his services.
