    I have seen a number of doctors over the years for my son and various conditions. Dr Bajaj is very polite, attentive to the parent’s concerns and clearly has experience of a range of childhood conditions. Most importantly I was confident in her advice and diagnosis.

    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.

    Dr Bajaj was very kind and patient which is very reassuring for a first time patient. We took our son in for a routine check up and she was very thorough and identified a few other issues which may have been missed by our GP. Thankfully the tests came back alright but we were very grateful for the extra care to make sure everything was alright.

    The Doctor was recommended to us by our GP. Dr Bajaj is very professional, knowledgable and thorough. I would advise anyone to see the Doctor in regards to any developmental issues their children may be having because it was a positive experience. We and our child were very well treated and we will be making further appointments for follow up.
