We have been so lucky to have our daughter under the care of Dr Maalouf. He is very caring, positive, informative and most of all super efficient at getting to the crux of any problem or issue and getting it resolved. We are very grateful for his care and guidance and can not recommend him highly enough.

My kids have been going to Dr. Maalouf since they were born (8+ years ago). I have continually been impressed with the responsiveness of he & his team, as well as his bedside manner. I also feel that Dr. Maalouf works with our family & schedules when deciding the correct course of treatment. I have recommended him to all of my friends who have moved into London.

I was very disappointed to be totally rushed in my appointment with a nurse called in to wheel my babies buggy out of the room before I had even put her shoes on. We were in the consultation for less than 10 minutes.

Dr Elia Maalouf

I am extremely sorry if you feel you were rushed through your appointment. At times I am covering the inpatients and intensive care unit at the Portland Hospital as well as running the outpatient clinic. Occasionally I am called to attend an emergency situation in the hospital. A classic example was my clinic on Friday 12th October, 2018. I will never rush a patient unless I am certain of my diagnosis and management plan and only in a situation when I am urgently required in the hospital. All of my patients know that I am contactable by email and that I always respond to their concerns and queries promptly. In case you feel we did not cover any of your concerns during the consultation please feel free to email me at any time.

We only have good things to say about Doctor Maalouf. He is an excellent Doctor. Doctor Maalouf is very responsive, at anytime of the day and knows exactly what to say to make parents feel at ease. Doctor Maalouf’s diagnostics have always been correct from our experience. We are grateful and feel very secure to have Doctor Maalouf as our paediatrician.

We have had a fantastic experience with Dr. Maalouf as he has helped us with our son from birth in late 2017. As first time parents with a son who was born with moderate complications, Dr. Maalouf was solely responsible for delivering an outside specialist on the day of his birth to help provide an assessment and treatment plan in conjunction with him. His continued support through some additional issues and concerns with eating, gaining weight, etc had the same concern and care as the day our son was born. In many occasions, Dr. Maalouf has gone well above and beyond the call of duty to ensure our son was given his best chance to grow and thrive. His doctor/patient interactions are fantastic: he is great with our infant son and truly takes the time to understand our concerns and respond in a comprehensive manner. Especially when considering we are first time parents, I can't think of a better experience than the one we have had with Elia. I cannot recommend Dr. Maalouf strongly enough.

We have been with Dr Maalouf for nearly 2 years. He is always responsive via email, text and phone calls. I have found him to be thorough and diligent all whilst welcoming us with a warm smile. I know he is busy yet he never makes me feel as though he is rushing me out of his office. My children love him and we are all so pleased we have found him after having a less welcoming experience with other practitioners.

What stands out with Dr Maalouf is that he's decisive. So many doctors nowadays are not, but with him, you just get answers and decisions. It's so liberating. Of course, the answers are also correct.

Dr Maalouf has looked after both my children since birth. They are now 8 and 5. He is an amazing doctor. My daughter has an immune deficiency and has had frequent infections, often requiring admitting into hospital. He is the only doctor, and we have seen many, who I totally and completely trust. I have total confidence in him. He is always clear and decisive as well as being incredibly caring and kind. I honestly don't know how we would have got through the past few years without him. I cannot rate him highly enough.

Dear Doctor, We will never be able to thank you enough for what you did and have done for our dear baby. The fact that he was unwell when he was born because of prematurity and that he was taken from us after only holding him for two minutes was devastating. We came to the hospital full of worries and fears of our deeply loved and missed angel, and the situation after his birth was very hard for us. When you met us at the NICU we were in a very low emotional state, but your kindness, professionalism and empathy during those days helped us immensely. We will never ever be able to show you enough gratitude for allowing us to have our son with us in the room while he was having the treatment…We gave birth to a beautiful son that we were not able to see, hold, kiss, or take with us and this time we really needed to feel our son close. Thank you for helping him to recover so well and for taking the time to explain everything to us and to make us feel part of it. Heaven has given us the present to meet an amazing doctor and we are looking forward that you help our sons grow to healthy and happy teenagers. Thank you very much
