We had a really positive experience at The Portland with Dr Adam Fox today. We had come for a second opinion and found a lot of what our previous consultant had told us was now outdated or disproved by longditudinal studies. This has been a revaluing to us and my daughter, who struggles with food anxiety associated with a serious allergy. Victoria the nurse was also fantastic through the testing and diagnosis - actually making it a game. I can’t overstate how easy this appointment and follow up was. I totally recommend it for current, reliable, punctual, committed and warm clinical care. Thank you

We originally met with David Mass and Dr Adam Fox at the Portland Hospital in December 2017. Dr Adam Fox came highly recommend from an ENT specialist in Blackheath. Both David Mass and Adam Fox put myself, my wife and our daughter at ease as soon as they saw us. They gave our child an allergy test with almost immediate results and then saw us after the tests for a follow up joint consultation. All on the same day. They prescribed treatment there and then and ever since, our child has thrived. We have returned to see David Mass and Dr Adam Fox for a follow up appointment which was equally as good. The relief that someone takes the time to listen to us and understands our daughters allergies and needs is greatly appreciated. The fact that the treatment provided meant that our daughters ear nose and throat issues have dramatically reduced is amazing. Please pass on our ongoing thanks to Dr Adam Fox and David Mass, they are truly appreciated. We will be back for our follow up appointment when required.

my son was suffering from terrible allergies brought on by the extremely hot weather, after meeting with mr fox and administering the correct treatment plan i saw an immediate improvement in my son and he's pretty much back to normal. The allergy testing was fast which was ideal as my son wasn't the best patient. Mr Fox is very knowledgeable in his field and answered all our questions and took his time though he was incredibly busy as evidenced by the people waiting in reception! I'm happy my son is happy and settled and we are now aware of all the factors that were triggering his allergic reactions.

Dr. Fox has been our go to doctor for our son's allergy (food and hay fever). He is extremely knowledgeable about the subject matter and always offers the best options for treatment.

We started to see Dr Fox from two years ago when my older daughter had eczema one month after her birth. She is now two and half years olde and still has eczema and multiple food allergy. My younger daughter also has food allergy and eczema , but not as bad as her sister. Dr Fox gave me a lot advice on how to control eczema and taught me through the cause of allergy . I am a very worried parent , every time I see my girls suffering from eczema and allergy reaction , I felt emotional and sad. Dr Fox was very patient to explain all my questions. He shows so much compassion and has great knowledge in this field. It is important to have a doctor like Dr Fox who is the top of his field and use his knowledge to help people. Food allergy and eczema may last for a long time. But now I am confident that my children are in good hands and will be taken care of well by Dr Fox.
