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."

Dr Mohamed has been excellent with my son. We are very happy we were recommended her after our son continued to have a number of different health issues. She was friendly and made our son feel relaxed and comfortable from the first time we saw her. She took great care in listening and understanding the problem. Her medical explanations were clear and treatment plans have been very effective. We wish we would have met Dr Mahomed earlier!

My daughter was very “inspired” by Dr Mahomed. Dr Mahomed had first had experience of various issues which my daughter was grappling with and therefore the advise she had to give was listened to intently. My daughter had at last an explanation for some of the issues she had been dealing with and some practical advise about how to feel better. Her medication will take a while to work but we look forward to seeing Dr Mahomed in February when I hope my daughter will be feeling much better. My daughter will soon turn 18 and I fear we will struggle to find her replacement !!

Ever since our arrival in London we have been in a desperate search of a qualified and reliable paediatrician to take care of our kids. Being in a new environment and country, we feel very lucky to have met Dr. Fatima Mahomed in Portland Hospital who has become not only our family doctor but also best friend to our children. Seeing her for periodic check-ups is something what always triggers a smile on the face of our kids, as they know they are visiting a place where they would be welcomed, listened to and treated in the best way possible. Apart from being a real professional whose diagnoses and treatment plans have proven true and healing, Dr. Fatima has authentic ability to understand and share the feelings of others through which she connects with people and makes one feel heard, relaxed and being taken care of. This is truly something unique and we feel very lucky to have met Dr. Fatima and will hopefully continue seeing her throughout our stay in UK.

"Dr Fathima was able to diagnose our son and devise an effective treatment for it in one appointment. Before, we had been receiving wrong diagnosis from the GP, which ended up aggravating our son’s condition. We cannot thank her enough also for her availability to reply our emails (sometimes very late) at those critical times when we are unsure on how to deal with symptoms."
