    Dr Mahomed has been taking care of our baby since he was 3 months old. She created a magical bond with our little one from an early age. Her medical and clinical expertise is superb but she’s also fantastic at making it clear to us parents! Dr Mahomed listens to our concerns (as first time parents there are many!) which is very hard to find these days. We could not be happier with our paediatrician.

    Dr Fathima Mahomed is quite simply everything you could hope for in a doctor. Professional, extremely knowledgeable, very thorough, kind and caring, and completely trustworthy. My family and I feel very blessed to have found such a wonderful person. She went above and beyond (on numerous occasions) in order to provide our baby the care he needed. It would have been easy for her to rush us through her care but she patiently gave us her attention and responded quickly to emails and calls. Her approach is outstanding!

    Dr Mahomed’s availability between appointments is second to none, answering emails with quick questions with impressive speed. She provided my daughter excellent care with swift solutions to address concerns I had that were effectively ignored by other practitioners that turned out to be legitimate. I trust her experience and opinion, and will continue my daughter’s care with her.

    Many thanks for your review. Please do let us know how We can get a overall 5 star rating. Please note the Hospital pathways, governance and paperwork is separate and independent from Dr Mahomed and is something that Dr Mahomed has no control over.

    Dr Mahomed is a huge blessing to me after coming from the US and having the same pediatrician for my children for almost 18 years. She recently helped my 17 year old daughter who had been struggling with stomach problems for many years with no relief. The guidelines she put in place for her to follow had almost immediate results. I highly recommend.

    My experience with Fathima is outstanding. She met my daughter when she was hospitalised at the age of 3 months. Since then, she has followed my daughter and has treated her each time she needed. Dr Mahomed is excellent, not only in treating patients but also in explaining things to parents, being more than available all the time. She is reassuring and I trust her more than anyone.

    Overall we've thoroughly enjoyed Dr. Mahomed. She is quick to respond to questions and she considers our son the patient in every interaction - she let's us know what is going on - but it's clear that she's speaking to him.

    We came in to see Dr Fathima Mahomed after a lot of frustrating and fruitless visits to our local GP. Dr Fathima is very professional, knowledgeable and caring. She listened to our concerns, addressed the immediate problem and formulated a long term plan to resolve the baby’s ongoing health issues. I am happy to say we now have a much healthier baby and comfort in knowing if something does go wrong, we have her expertise at hand.
