    Brilliant paediatric consultation with Dr Amin. Reassured and grateful to have found someone who works privately alongside being one of the most clinically active and leading paediatric endocrinologists in the NHS (GOSH). Came away with a mine of information, understanding and advice about my child’s existing condition which will shape how we manage it. But, just as importantly, an understanding of steps we can be proactive about to avoid our child developing other conditions which they may be at risk of as a result of this one. As well as information about genetic / hereditary risk factors for the rest of the family. Dr Amin was very personable, easy to both talk to and understand, and generous with his time. We will return for review when needed and, in the meantime, many thanks - much appreciated.

    Dr Amin is so approachable, knowledgeable and open minded. He relates so well to our daughter and makes sure to include her and make her an agent of her own well being. Auto immune disorders are so tricky and he looks at the entire picture and offers many additional approaches to achieve best health. He thoroughly answers any questions, no matter how strange or silly! We feel very lucky to have found him.
