    We were looking for an experienced paediatrician for our 8yr old. And we are so glad we found Dr. Mahomed. She is not only an expert in her field but also an amazing human being. She is very caring for her patients. She was on top of things and went way and beyond to get the necessary tests done and get to the bottom of the problem. She is one of the best doctors we have come across.

    Dr Fathima had a lovely rapport with my teenager daughter and managed to squeeze an entire childhood's worth of diagnoses into her 45 minute appointment. Her obvious high level of specialist experience as a Paediatric Doctor shone through, obvious in her ability to highlight what I had assumed were relatively minor issues but which are having potentially more serious repercussions for my daughter than I had thought. She has pointed us in the direction of a number of specialists along with other advice and recommendations. I genuinely wish that I had taken the opportunity to access the specialist Paediatric services like Dr Fathima's for all of my three children when they were younger just to give them a regular check every few years to ensure that they were all on track and as healthy as possible. Thank you very much for your professionalism and warrmth.

    Super manner with the kids, who last time I visited did not want to leave the doctor's surgery as they were having too much fun. I think that speaks for itself!
