    Dr. Gholam was excellent with my three kids ages 4 and under. They had a range of difficulties with their skin which she was able to diagnose expertly and quickly. We found her tremendously reassuring in her treatment, and always a pleasure to see!

    After various appointments with GP's, midwives and health workers, I took my daughter to see Dr Gholam about a rash on her arms and legs. Literally after a few moments of examination Dr Gholam had her diagnosis. Unfortunately there was no immediate cure, but it was good to finally get a definitive answer. She was great with our very young daughter, spoke to us in a manner in which we understood, no medical jargon and was just a very nice and pleasant lady. Would definitely recommend her.
