    Dr Bakshi has helped us so much. I feel we would have never got a diagnosis without his clinical expertise. He is excellent with my little boy, explains things very clearly (and show us the medical references) and is responsive to any communications. He is genuinely invested in his patients health and delivers an excellent standard of care. I am very grateful for him and would recommend him wholeheartedly.

    I contacted Dr Bakshi having read reviews about him. I am 77, when i was eight years old I had a bad reaction to penicillin, As a precaution prior to receiving a Covid injection I contacted Dr Bakshi to discuss my concern about having the injection I requested an allergy blood test. It proved negative and relieved my concerns. I found Dr Bakshi to be one of the most personable medical Doctors I have met and his knowledge of allergies is clearly very extensive. I would recommend him to anyone with allergy concerns.

    Absolutely outstanding care recieved by Dr Bakshi, i recommend him to anyone i come across with an allergy or suspected allergy child. We first met Dr Bakshi at his previous place of work following a transfer of care due to nearly a year of not being listened to by a previous nhs trust. Within 1 appointment Dr Bakshi resolved all of our issues and provided us with every tool we needed to move forward with our milk allergy daughter. I managed to track Dr Bakshi down following the birth of our son and suspected milk allergy and again within 1 consultation he acknowledged our concerns, talked us through a treatment plan and answered all of our worries and questions. Without a doubt Dr Bakshi puts the patient at the forefront of everything and you can really tell he has a passion for his job.

    In these busy times, made even more hectic and difficult with COVID, what a ray of sunshine!! I cannot thank Dr Bakshi enough for his prompt and thorough response to helping my son. What is more, we felt that we had the time to explain our problems and that we were listened to. This empathy was especially felt by my son, who was quite worried of his symptoms, have a kind and considerate Dr who communicated with my Son was brilliant as he felt valued and listened to. I cannot recommend Dr Bakshi highly enough, he has been especially quick and efficient with his feedback and advice - all things being considered this is amazing. Thanks for taking time to help and treat us.

    We were incredibly grateful that Dr Bakshi could see our 9 year old daughter within just a couple of days of our enquiry. He was calm, thorough and explained everything very well. He set her at ease (and the teddy bear helped!) He talked through the proposed treatment and explained it all brilliantly. That evening she had a severe allergic reaction - and Dr Bakshi answered our message out of hours, immediately setting our minds to rest. He then followed up with a weekend call to check how she was doing. This personal touch was incredibly helpful at a stressful time with an ill child.
