“We met Dr Fathima for my daughter who had a bad cough & chest infection. The level of care, attention to detail and follow up checks was superb. My daughter wasn’t easy to deal with when taking tests, and the doctor was gentle and reassuring at the same time. I would certainly choose to see Dr Fathima again should my child need medical care in future”

Dr. Mahomed is the best. I am so happy we found her. When my daughter was 4 months old she developed a serious respiratory infection. Being a new mom and fairly new to the country I was super fortunate to have had Dr. Mahomed. She diagnosed her promptly, treated her, and checked up often. I've never experienced this level of care. In addition to being an incredible doctor her bedside manner is fantastic, she is so sweet with my daughter and patient with me (a crazy new mom). I highly recommend her.

Dr Fathima has been treating my daughter for constipation and vulvovaginitis. My daughter had an ongoing problems in her private parts and has been previously missdiagnosed by our GP. Dr Fathima was excellent. She helped my daughter to get better very quickly. It can be really hard for a little girl to talk about problems in their private areas, but Dr Fatima made my daughter feel confortable. I am forever grateful to Dr Fathima for helping my little girl.

Dr Mahomed was absolutely fantastic with my daughter. She has a wonderful 'bedside manner' which put my nervous daughter at ease immediately.

Our 2.5 years old daughter had severe constipation with cold, cough and fever. We went to GP at least 4 times before seeing Dr. Fathima Mahomed. It wasn't useful to see the GP. Our little suffered every day and she was in pain all day. Finally, we pushed hard on GP to refer us to the Paediatrician. We were lucky to choose Dr. Fathima. She was fantastic. Dr. Fathima identified the problem within minutes and suggested necessary treatment. Within 4-6 hours our daughter's problem was sorted. Dr. Fathima is very patient and heard all our concerns. She assured us about the treatment and provided us with all the information. Also, gave us nutritional advice. She is extremly knowledge and friendly with the kids. We are grateful to have her as our Doctor. We will keep as our go-to paediatrician in future.

My teenage daughter came to Dr Mahomed in a lot of pain and quite distressed. Dr Mahomed was the first consultant who actually spoke to her maturely and treated her with kindness and honesty. She comforted her and was able to relate to what she was going through. Dr Mahomed is a confident and competent paediatrician and I would highly recommend her.

We met with Dr Mahomed at the Portland with our son. She was very patient and kind and listened to my concerns. She had to deliver some life changing news but did this with compassion. She has since been at the end of an email for me whenever I have needed her.

I can't recommend Dr Mahomed highly enough. She is an outstanding doctor, unlike any other paediatrician I have ever come across before, incredibly professional, knowledgeable and accurate, as well as having a natural way with babies (my baby daughter absolutely loves her!). Dr Mahomed combines deep medical knowledge, with a strong sense of observation (which is so crucial, especially when it comes to babies), and great empathy for parents too. My husband and I first came across Dr Mahomed following a very stressful misdiagnose by another doctor, when our daughter was about 2 months old - she was calm, assertive and accurate, and has continued to see our daughter since, helping us greatly in various occasions. We have recommended doctor Fathima Mahomed to several friends, all of whom were very happy and impressed.

Dr Fathima has taken perfect care of our little one. We went to her when my daughter was 9 months with eczema, eye infection, high fever and Cows milk intolerance and she was suffering a lot. She diagnosed all the issues pronto and my child had a speedy recovery. Have been going to her since then for any concerning issue and would highly recommend her.

Dr Fathima Mahomed has recently treated my 11 year old daughter for bedwetting. In 6 weeks she has achieved more than we have managed in the 9 years we have been trying to get her dry at night!

Dr Fathima Mahomed is a lovely Consultant who instantly put my daughter H at ease and restored her confidence in the Medical Professionals. H says ’She likes to go and see Dr Fathima,even though she gets me to have blood tests’. As parents we have been very impressed with Dr Fathima, she diagnosed Hannah with a condition that had previously been missed. She is very approachable and when we needed to see her as H was quite poorly an appointment was found for the next day.

Good morning Dr Mahomed, I want to personally thank you for the care and attentiveness provided to our daughter. You are very patient and know children (especially those who are young) need more time to build trust. You were able to do this with ease. Not only that, your experience showed when narrowing down her condition and providing a solution (this also includes referrals to specialists). This the first time we have chosen to go private and initially had 5 names to choose from. We checked reviews and couldn’t agree more with your previous patients. You are an amazing pediatrician and truly glad we chose you. Your service and care is nothing short of 5-star and definitely recommend you to anyone who needs a brilliant and trustworthy paediatrician.

I brought A, my four-year-old in with an infection on Saturday. I am so impressed with your offering and delighted to meet Dr Fathima Mahomed. She is fantastic. I honestly thought this type of caring, accessible, prompt and professional care had disappeared. It reminded me of my paediatrician and pharmacist when I was growing up abroad. I have emailed my daughter's class parents about your medical service and will continue to tell all local families about your practice. Many thanks and best wishes, C.

Dr. Mahomed kindly saw my son at short notice at what was a very stressful time for our family as my son was quite unwell and had not been correctly diagnosed by our GP. She immediately put myself and my son at ease with her warm yet professional manner. She listened carefully to my concerns and was highly proficient in correctly diagnosing and treating my son. My son warmed to her immediately and was comfortable talking to her and allowing her to examine him. She is extremely empathetic with children and adults alike. We regard Dr. Mahomed highly and are so grateful to her. We are very lucky to have found her!

When I met Dr Mahomed in November she immediately put me at ease with her manner and the fact that finally a Doctor was listening to my concerns. She was kind and gentle when examining J. Following the results that we received she followed up with several phone calls to check that we were dealing with the diagnosis ok as a family and has offered her ongoing support. I am very glad that I had a compassionate doctor delivering the results of J’s diagnosis to me.

Dr. Mahomed is an exceptional physician dedicated to her work. Her intelligence and experience are evident upon meeting her. She skill-fully identifies the illness correctly and interacts with children and parents in the most compassionate way. Dr Mahomed went over and beyond her call of duty in that she helped us manage our I’ll baby by continuously calling and texting over the weekend and she even made a house visit during a snow storm to ensure our baby recovered from his critical condition. She is by far the most talented doctor we have ever met.

We are ever so grateful for Dr Mahomed's time and patience. The service was absolutely brilliant and i couldn't fault anything. She was able to give me time as the parent and break down all the information required, and make me feel comfortable. Dr Mahomed was brilliant with my daughter which is so important and key when dealing with the patient no matter how young or old. The vaccination was stress free and i felt my daughter was in the best of hands. A truly wonderful lady whom was welcoming, patient and very caring to any issues i raised which i feel is ever so important. I would be more than happy to return to the Portland and specifically ask to see Dr Mahomed to assist with any issues going forward for my daughter and I will highly recommend her going forward.

Our family paediatrician of 9 years was away on holiday when my 6 yr old daughter was admitted to Portland Hospital in London and was put on an antibiotic IV for four days. We had the fortune that Dr. Fathima Mahomed was on call and was able to treat our daughter. We were so impressed by Dr. Mahomed that she has now become our family paediatrician for all of our three children. Dr Mahomed is extremely competent in diagnosing, testing and referring us to the appropriate expert consultants. She is incredibly dedicated to her patients and is prepared to work through the weekends and holidays at all times both in person and via texts, photos and phone conversations. She clearly loves her chosen field and has an wonderful ability to connect with children in a calm voice that puts everyone at ease. I highly recommend Dr. Mahomed.

Dr Fatima Mahomed took my 6 months old baby under her supervision when he was admitted to hospital as he was having seizures. She was really caring, motherly and gave us the best treatment and led us to the right consultants to get the best treatment for our son. Once we left hospital with the baby, she was constantly on the phone to me to check in on our son and to advice us what to do. I have never had such great care and attention from a paediatrician. She also really comforts us and takes her time to explain to us and calm us down when we are really concerned. I highly recommend - She's the best.

Dr Fathima consulted us in regards to our 1-year son ongoing medical problems. He had a reflux and severe cow milk intolerance. He was not gaining weight and was at the bottom of the growth charts. My wife and I were impressed of how quickly and professionally she diagnosed our kid and recommended the right treatment for him. Moreover, she was very kind to us and our son, who, for the first time, enjoyed doctor’s visit. I wish all the paediatricians had the same approach when dealing with little patients. I would definitely recommend Dr Fathima to all parents looking for professional and ‘human’ treatment for their children.
