Overall we've thoroughly enjoyed Dr. Mahomed. She is quick to respond to questions and she considers our son the patient in every interaction - she let's us know what is going on - but it's clear that she's speaking to him.

We came in to see Dr Fathima Mahomed after a lot of frustrating and fruitless visits to our local GP. Dr Fathima is very professional, knowledgeable and caring. She listened to our concerns, addressed the immediate problem and formulated a long term plan to resolve the baby’s ongoing health issues. I am happy to say we now have a much healthier baby and comfort in knowing if something does go wrong, we have her expertise at hand.

"Dr Fathima is an angel. She helped us numerous times when in crisis (including our late nights emails). She is reliable, knowledgeable and amazing with kids. Our son loves her, she makes him smile and at ease. Her advice is on the spot and always works fast. We are blessed to have her as a paediatrician."

Explanation
Bedside Manner
Consulted Dr Mahomed in her capacity as a general Paediatrician at The Portland Hospital for my DD age 11, suffering from laryngitis and a longstanding stomach pain. She quickly and methodically discerned the symptoms as presenting due to two different causes and went on to prescribe appropriate remedial action to be taken as well as medication. The remedial approach worked well for my daughter. Most pleasant bedside manner and knows how to handle her younger patients. Takes time to give advice, actively listens to the patient (and not just the parent), explains and ensures patient feels comfortable about the approach adopted. Booking process was easy (via The Portland's booking desk) and a suitable slot was offered. GDPR-compliant comms follow fairly quickly after the consultation and a rectification was equally quickly acted upon. Initial consultation was GBP250 and the follow-up was, less usual, priced the same. Clinic easy to reach and consultation hours extend to after school hours and full working week.

We are delighted with the care Dr Mahomed has shown our 18 month old daughter. Dr Mahomed has helped our daughter in various ways since we started seeing her. She has given very useful tips about our daughter's diet, which has helped her constipation. She understood from looking at our daughter that she may have anaemia, which was confirmed by an iron test. Since starting iron supplements our daughter has seemed much more healthy, so we are very grateful to her for raising this. Dr Mahomed is also very responsive. Our daughter had terrible stomach pain one night which really frightened us. Dr Mahomed responded right away to our email and put us completely at ease. We would have no hesitation in recommending her to other parents, and we will continue to use her as our paediatrician."
