Fathima is great. Both times I have been to see her with my now 3 month old daughter she has been thorough and informative. Fathima is very personable and makes me feel at ease even if I have lots to ask her. She is also lovely with Savannah which is so important as a new mum.

I have only good things to say. She was very professional and warm putting Amber at ease. She was very clear with the diagnosis and we were so relieved to finally speak to someone who knew what was going on. I would certainly make sure we contact Dr Mahomed again should we need to.

Dr Fathima is a fantastic expert. Not only she knows what she is doing but also she has this incredible warmyh towarda children. All her diagnosis and recommended treatments were spot on. What I also appreciate a lot, is that she makes herself available to respond to texts quickly which is great for first time mothers full of questions like myself.

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.

My wife and I found Dr Mahomed to be very kind and understanding to the needs of my son and us as parents. Dr Mahomed showed great empathy and appreciation of not only the current needs, but also of those from past experiences. Lastly, Dr Mahomed as been prompt and efficient with her communication with both my wife and I, as well as other medical professionals.

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.

We were very worried about our son having been flagged up (by a dentist of all things...) for being at the edge of a serious health problem. Dr Mahomed was very thorough in her examination of him. She was kind, good at explanations and generous with her time. We felt very reassured. Thank you!

Good afternoon. I found Dr Mohammed quite insightful and she seemed to have the ability to break down walls. My teenage daughter who had her walls up or seemed uncomfortable was made to relax. Also Dr Mohammeds explanations were thorough and made sense.

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.

I found Dr Fathima Mahomed to be a very caring and thorough doctor when she treated my 14 year old daughter. She took time to understand the full medical history and recommended a clear course of action. She was careful to arrange proper followup and to indicate how to contact her should symptoms change.

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.

I brought Allegra, 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, Catherine

I have worked with Dr Mahomed at the Royal London Hospital and she has vast experience in treating complex patients with a wide variety of conditions. She also has special expertise in treating rheumatology patients and I have seen her going way beyond her call to make children get the right treatment , liaising and networking with other specialists to optimise care. She is a confident and competent paediatrician and I would highly recommend her.
