Dr Naqvi has cared for my two children with congenital heart disease at the Royal Brompton Hospital for many years. She is a wonderful doctor. She has always taken great care to explain everything to the children and manage their expectations and explain their future care. She was very thoughtful around arranging tests to avoid stress near important exams as they have got older. We will miss seeing her annually very much as we always trusted her completely.

I can’t recommend Dr Naqvi highly enough – she is a wonderful doctor! She has such a warm manner and very quickly put my rather nervous 8-year-old daughter at her ease, answering all her (and my) many questions. She was extremely thorough with all the assessments and took lots of time to discuss my daughter’s symptoms and make recommendations. She is very calm and caring – and so obviously passionate about her work.
