“Dr Mahomed takes an end to end view and has identified the root cause of symptoms for both my daughters - which have eluded many others over a protracted period. I would say that the impact of her assessment has been life-changing on my daughter and therefore all of us. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Mohamed to any concerned parent even if you have already had medical advice. Also Dr Mohamed has a natural rapport with children and will provide a positive experience at any appointment.“

    Dr Mahomed is the warmest, most caring Paediatrician I have ever met. She truly cares about the wellbeing of the children, but is also extremely patient and reassuring with the parents. My daughter actually adores her and often asks about her.

    Great and highly experienced doctor. She has all the patience in the world when it comes to her client. Her approach towards client is person centred and understands the needs of clients and families. My child is always calm and comfortable in her presence. As a parent she gives us the assurance and peace anyone would expect from a highly experienced doctor. She goes over the board to check up on clients even after appointments to make sure the client is doing well. Would definitely recommend her to any parents looking for an experienced and passionate paediatrician. she is a true gem in the medical field. Thank you Doctor Fathima and the Portland hospital team

    We are so happy we found Dr. Fathima Mahomed for our baby, she is absolutely lovely and, with us being first time parents, she has been very quick to put our minds at ease on a number of occasions already. She also responds very quickly to all our questions via email saving us from (additional) sleepless nights. She is extremely knowledgeable and professional, caring and we trust her completely! Highly recommended

    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.
