We were able to secure an appointment with Dr Gholam at a convenient time. At our meeting, Dr Gholam quickly assessed the issue and explained her proposed treatment clearly and simply. She was very pleasant and easy for us to talk to.

Dr. Gholam was excellent with my three kids ages 4 and under. They had a range of difficulties with their skin which she was able to diagnose expertly and quickly. We found her tremendously reassuring in her treatment, and always a pleasure to see!

After various appointments with GP's, midwives and health workers, I took my daughter to see Dr Gholam about a rash on her arms and legs. Literally after a few moments of examination Dr Gholam had her diagnosis. Unfortunately there was no immediate cure, but it was good to finally get a definitive answer. She was great with our very young daughter, spoke to us in a manner in which we understood, no medical jargon and was just a very nice and pleasant lady. Would definitely recommend her.

Our newborn son developed exzema in his first weeks. His condition quickly deteriorated. He became very restless, crying all the time, even needing antibiotics for infected weeps behinds the ears. He was still so young that our GP wasn't sure how to proceed. When we visited Dr Gholam he was just 8 weeks old and had been miserable most of that time. Dr Gholam quickly diagnosed the problem and gave us a regime of creams to use on his skin. It cleared up within two days. We had our happy little boy back again. We would recommend Dr Gholam not just for her expertise, but also because she's warm, approachable and a good communicator. We had a complex regime to follow and needed to ask her several clarifications on the correct procedure. She made her self available to us out of hours, promptly replying to our emails in the following days, even calling us back from home to run through it all again. We don't usually use private healthcare but in this case it was absolutely the right this for us. It gave us our lives back.

Dr Gholam had a very professional and proactive approach combined with a friendly manner in treating our 3 and 7 year old daughters for different dermatological issues which are now being successfully resolved thanks to her prescribed treatment. We would not hesitate to recommend her as a Paediatric Dermatologist to friends and family.

Dr Gholam has been treating my 6 month old son for the past couple of months and I have found her to be exceptional. I can not recommend her enough. She is practical in her approach but also caring and understanding which I think is a necessity when treating babies/young children. She is always available if I have any questions and responds promptly to emails. I have come across few doctors who are able to provide both medical care and patient care in equal measure.
