We loved Dr Naqvi. Not only was she thoroughly knowledgable about our daughter's condition, but she also had a warm, compassionate and friendly manner that took the anxiety out of a worrying situation. She was able to explain what was going on in a clear way, and was accessible to us for advice in between appointments.

We first met Dr Naqvi when our daughter was first admitted as a newborn and spent over two weeks in hospital, she was very professional and caring and talked me and my partner through everything with compassion making sure we understood what our daughter was going through at this scary time. Throughout the hospital stay, Dr Naqvi checked on us and took the time to make sure our daughter was being looked after to the best standards. We now see doctor Naqvi in clinic every so often and she makes sure we know exactly how our daughter in progressing and that we never leave not understanding or with any unanswered questions. Dr Naqvi is amazingly caring and professional we are lucky to have her as our daughter's cardiologist
