“Dr Brough provided excellent medical care and advice for my 6 week old baby with severe eczema. Her calm and kind manner put us all at ease and my sons face cleared up very soon after following the treatment plan. Dr Brough responded very fast when the eczema has an extreme flare up and her support was invaluable to me at that time. I can’t thank her enough!“

Not enough stars to reflect Dr. Brough's service After suffering for so long using an alternative service, Dr. Brough managed to assist in a huge step in progression after the very first visit. Recommended to us by a family friend, now we recommend to anyone with a similar condition. Thank you again Dr. Brough

Dr Helen Brough is the best Doctor I have dealt with to date. She sets an exemplary standard for her bedside manner, expertise and professionalism. Not only did she listen attentively and sensitively to my child's symptoms but she effectively diagnosed and treated symptoms other specialists/doctors had dismissed. Dr Brough was friendly and gentle towards my child. She did a thorough examination and explained test results in detail. As a parent, I felt free to ask questions and at no point felt rushed or like an 'over reacting parent'. Dr Brough knows her stuff (!!) and is a truly exceptional Doctor.

We came to see Dr Brough because of my sons peanut allergy. She was very thorough and made this scary process rather enjoyable for both me and my son. It has been a year and we are peanut allergy free, thanx to Dr. Brough and her invaluable advice.

We've had a really positive experience doing the milk oral immunotherapy with Dr Brough for our son. We have found Dr Brough to be extremely responsive and supportive as well as incredibly knowledgeable, as you would expect. We have recommended her practice to others we know who are dealing with allergies and are planning to return for further treatment later on this year.

Dr Brough was an invaluable support to my family following the emergence of several food allergies in my infant son. She assisted us through multiple stages of testing, investigations and food challenges and was always able, both in person and remotely, to provide informative and helpful guidance and best practice on overcoming obstacles and challenges. She was kind and re-assuring in her approach and we would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone experiencing challenges in respect of food allergies.

Dr Brough did an incredibly thorough examination of my baby’s skin to formulate a plan to combat her atopic eczema. She prescribed lotions, moisturisers and ointments that we hadn’t tried previously. We saw results overnight. I had forgotten how soft a baby’s skin should feel. It felt like a miracle!

A more detailed verbal explanation of weaning at the first appointment would be have been appreciated. Everything else was great though.
