“I have a very allergic baby with severe eczema. We got recommended to see Professor George through another mum who's little one is under the good care of Professor George. We've had several consultations so far and every single visit has been efficient, helpful, and we were made comfortable by the team each time. The consultation rooms are also conveniently located. Professor George is well know in the field of paediatric immunology, he's very knowledgeable and also approachable. We've been given lots of useful advise when we see him and I feel we're being taken care of in good hands.“
