I went to see Dr Bushra with my 2 year old who has had recurrent problems with her ears. It was an excellent experience - she was able to do tests that normally we would have had to go to a specialist for, and she was extremely thorough, looking at the situation from all possible angles. She took the time to explain the possible causes properly to me, and has suggested a comprehensive treatment + follow up plan. She also made my daughter feel incredibly comfortable, helping her through the various tests with toys and a lot of kindness. An excellent doctor. Thank you!

My children have been seeing Dr Al-Rubeyi since they were infants, roughly 10 years. She has always made herself available to us, even making home visits on occasion. Similarly, we have always been able to reach her by mobile, if necessary. At clinic, she is extremely attentive and we never feel rushed out the door. She spends the time she needs and she is very thorough. In addition, Dr Al-Rubeyi has a wonderful "bedside manner" and is quite good at making the children comfortable. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a paediatric doctor who is personable, experienced and gets to know the whole family.

Dr Bushra Al-Rubeyi has been the paediatrician with my two daughters for five years since they were born. She is highly experienced with a wide range of paediatrics and has the most caring manner for young kids, with successfully treated my daughters’ eczema, nappy rashes, infants reflux, and cases of viral and bacterial infections along with very upsetting diarrhea and fever. She is always available in any case of emergency and has always been patient to give me convincing assurances. I strongly recommend Dr Al-Rubeyi and her clinic with entire trust and am very grateful to have her being my daughters’ doctor!

I am so glad that I found her. I had quite a few frustrating experience with NHS and I was desperate to find someone better for my 8 years old daughter. Dr Bushra was very friendly, my daughter was relaxed right away. She took her time to listen what’s been going on, and she knew right away what was wrong with my daughter. She seems to have a very good knowledge and experience in her sleeve. I’m very pleased with my visit.

We’ve been known Dr Bushra for 13 years and we’ve seen her today after 7 years as my daughter has a streptococcal throat infection. It felt like yesterday. She is the best doctor, most caring and professional doctor we’ve ever met and I know my girls are in safe hands when we are going to see her. She is the type of doctor who would answer your phone at 3:00am and be there for your child and fight. She is absolutely amazing and we are so grateful to have met her and be our girls’ Doctor.

Great doctor, she answer very clear all of my questions. She did a proper exam of my kids, 13 and 8 years old. We are new in town from Argentina so she took the time to understand all of the vaccines that my kids had in other countries, not just in Argentina, also US, Brazil and Mexico where we lived in the past.

This is the best ever medical service for children we have ever experienced since we had our son. As a family, we have just moved to UK from China since Jul 2018 and our friends highly recommended Dr Bushra to us when we were settling in. It was really worrying me when our son was running a high fever of 39.7 at midnight 2 days ago. Dr. Bushra has been very patient and professional in explaining what happened and the possible underlying reasons. The way she articulated this is very convincing and sensible, giving parents like us a huge relief of anxiety. She also corrected me on the misunderstanding of fever and encouraged me to learn. I need to say that It literally brought tears to my eyes when she said “This is my child when I saw them in the clinic”, “As a working mom you should be very proud of yourself” – the caring part is probably equally important to the medication part. Our son's grandfather also took doctor as his lifelong career and I feel so blessed that we are very lucky now in the capable hands of Dr Bushra with such a caring heart for her patients. Will strongly recommend her and her clinic to our friends in the UK and China. We wish Dr. Bushra a happy and healthy Chinese New Year of Pig which stands for health and fruitful results in the Chinese tradition

I cannot recommend dr Bushra enough. We first saw her when my son was 5 days old, and ever since she has been our rock, guiding us through numerous small baby adventures, from jaundice to eczema, allergies and innumerable viruses. She’s knowledgeable, experienced, always composed and has an amazing power to give us confidence, and help us be better parents. She makes her little patients feel loved and respected. We trust her entirely, love her evidence-based approach, and have relied on her recommendations from her network of specialists.

I have contacted Dr. Al Rubeyi today from her personal phone for the first time and surprised to be talking to her directly. She is very available and reachable. Our experience with her today was amazing. She has spent considerable amount of time just to sooth our child. She is very calm and her style is relaxing for the parents too. She is very explanatory and informative. Her approach to get our children to use as less medication as possible. She was assuring and trust building. I will definitely keep visiting her for my kid.

Dr Bushra Al-Rubeyi has been a revelation. Since our 2.5yr old daughter was born we have seen 4 or 5 different paediatricians until we tried Dr. Bushra. She is very attentive towards our daughter and makes her feel special which has made our daughter love going to the doctor! When we ask what she wants be when she is big she says 'doctor'. That's in part thanks to Dr Bushra. Her approach with parents is also great, taking time to explain everything no matter how long it takes and really wanting to get down to the root cause of health issues, not just treating the symptoms. I would highly recommend her! Thanks Dr. Bushra!

Dr. Bushra Al-Rubeyi is the primary pediatrician for our 3 month old daughter, since she was 4 weeks old. Dr. Al-Rubeyi takes time during the appointments, listens to our questions and concerns, and provides a well thought out plan of action.

I have known Bushra since I had my first son 6 years ago and have subsequently had 2 more children. Bushra has always been a huge support and has always provided us with excellent care, both medically and emotionally through some difficult times dealing with newborn reflux and other difficulties. She always goes the extra mile and never makes me feel that I am asking too much. It is wonderful to have such a competent and kind doctor for my children.
