    My 10 year old daughter’s appointment with Prof Fox was absolutely brilliant. He is a very interesting and experienced doctor who seems to absolutely love his chosen specialised subject. He has a wonderful way with children; addressing them directly and in a very friendly manner. Couldn’t find fault in any part of the experience at the Portland.

    Prof Adam Fox was extremely informative and took his time to explain the problem, the cause and the treatment. We have tried several creams and doctors over the last 3 months for my 6 month olds sever eczema. We went to see Prof Fox and 5pm last night and 22 hours later her skin is basically eczema free!! Do not hesitate to book this appointment.

    We took our 8 month old son to see Prof Fox due to newly developed eczema and suspected allergies that we couldn’t get under control - Prof Fox was able to explain the main issues he saw in him immediately, and reassuringly, was able to provide a plan to resolve these issues - the allergy testing threw in a few more issues, but Prof Fox provided us with an action plan and within days of our appointment, we had a a different child - his skin cleared up almost immediately, and *touch wood* we’ve had no more allergy issues since - I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Allergy London to anyone who is unable to get to the bottom of allergy issues, and we are looking forward to our next appointment in a few months time.

    I visited Dr Fox with my infant son who was showing signs of allergies. Subsequently my son has proven to be a child highly susceptible to allergens. Dr Fox’s calm demeanour and patient explanations of what was and is still happening to my son, and how he can help treat him, have been invaluable. I arrive fearful and anxious and I leave calmed and armed with knowledge. I recommend Dr Fox to anyone I hear has a child with similar issues and every parent thanks me for the recommendation, having had the same excellent treatment.

    Prof Fox is an exceptional doctor. We are lucky to have had our son in his care since he was 6 months old and Prof Fox diagnosed a milk allergy. Aside from being world-class in the field in terms of research, he is an incredibly 'patient friendly' doctor - with excellent explanations, willingness to discuss concerns in detail, and follow up on email when we've had any concerns. I can't rate him highly enough. Superb.
