“She was wonderful at interacting with my Daughter but also explaining to me everything i needed to know. I didn't feel rushed, and the process was very thorough. My daughter had felt nervous about showing someone her privates after the GP had been very short and direct with her but with Dr D'Cruz it was completely different. She was wonderful, couldn't have asked for more.“

    During this current climate, we made an appointment with Dr D'Cruz, as it was impossible to be seen by our own GP. We were seen very promptly. She explained everything and we left feeling very re-assured. I would definitely recommend Dr D'Cruz.

    Dr D’Cruz was outstanding in the care she provided for my daughter. Her manner was kind and warm and she spoke directly to my daughter concerning the issue. Her expertise and knowledge was very reassuring and appropriate tests were organised immediately. She also helped us understand the results and really helped get things moving in the next stage of my daughter’s care. It was apparent that she really cares for her patients and I cannot recommend her enough.

    I approached Dr. D’Cruz for expert opinion about my daughters ongoing chronic condition. Dr. D’Cruz provided an excellent context to my daughters condition during our consultation. My daughter felt completely at ease during the consultation. I left the consultation with a clear plan of action for my daughters chronic illness. In the 2 months since the consultation with Dr. D’Cruz, my daughters condition has improved significantly. I would like to thank Dr. D’Cruz for her advise, and the improvements my daughter has experienced in her wellbeing.

    Warm and nurturing with a lot of patience and understanding, Dr D’Cruz is down to earth and treats with care, while respecting the patient’s opinions and feelings at all times. She approaches with empathy and shows genuine interest in the welfare of the patient, which I really do appreciate and value. Thoroughly recommend her for children and even teens. She is equally light hearted and can make adults and kids laugh and enjoy her company.

    We came to see Dr D'Cruz with our daughter. She listen to us and our daughter, asked questions directly to her and was very encouraging towards Saskia and explaining everything in detail. Our overall experience was extremely positive and I would certainly recommend her to my friends if they are in need of a Paediatrician.

    Dr D'Cruz is a fantastic paediatrician. She has looked after both my sons this year and I have been extremely happy with everything she has done. She's very caring, really takes the time to listen and explain, she's very friendly and easy to talk to. She was very thorough with her approach and happy to rule things out rather than treat blindly. I do and will recommend her to anyone who needs to see a paediatrician. She is a gem!

    I have seen Dr D'Cruz on numerous occasions with both my son and daughter. She was calm and reassuring, took time to listen fully to all my concerns, enabling her to quickly identify their conditions and underlying causes and prescribe appropriate treatment. She had a brilliant way with my children and her aftercare was above and beyond expected. She really cares about her patients and treats them as her own family.
