    Very polite and clear. Does not say things to just please you. She really explores the options and takes time to explain things to you. Even if you don’t understand on the first occasion. Very patient and encouraging.

    Speedy and professional response. We were at the point of school threatening exclusion for our five year child and Dr Bajaj was able to see us at short notice and, based on a significant history which we had gathered, was able to help us to reach a diagnosis in a timeframe which allowed us to respond to and allay the school concerns. Overall a very positive experience.
