Ed is a fantastic Dr snd great guy - he hasn't missed a thing with our 19 month old son and always nails the diagnosis first time and treats the condition quickly and effectively. His communications are second to none and he always takes the time to follow up of his own accord in a personal way. He is literally a life saver - taking the fear out of the unknown for a parent of a youngun who can't explain for themselves. I can not recommend him enough. Brilliant service.

Dr Ed is the most dedicated, knowledgable and practical Dr I have ever known. He is fantastic with children and with parents also - he understands the strain a sick child places upon the whole family. He is always available on email - weekends, holidays - I am forever grateful for the fact that he replies when I am worried about my children. Most importantly, I have found his diagnoses over the years to be spot on. Throughout the current coronavirus outbreak, he has proactively kept his patients informed and has been a voice of reason amidst all the chaos. I trust him 110% to look out for my children - he genuinely cares about each and every one of his patients.

Wonderful experience with Dr Ed, we can’t thank or recommend him enough. Ed even took the time to answer my emails whilst he was on his holiday. My 7 week son is now thriving and is finally sleeping and we are so grateful to Ed. Overall a very companionate and efficient Doctor.
