    skin eruption
    I've been suffering from an unexplained skin eruption for almost three years. I was referred to a dermatologist by my gp after trying few antibiotics without improvement. Had a biopsy with result of a possible morphea/localized scleroderma. Steroids creams were prescribed by the dermatologist but did not make much difference. My first encounter with Dr Bakshi was via a video appointment. I explained my condition and all the previous medical efforts to get better. He recommended a five day trial treatment plan based on our discussion and his observation. I started feeling better from day one of taking the medication. I was able to see Dr Bakshi physically in his clinic five days later after the results of the blood test which he requested and arranged during the first appointment. He explained the results of the blood test and gave me prescription accordingly. There's been a remarkable improvement with my condition. Dr Bakshi also went out of his way to assist me on other unrelated health issue at no extra cost. Thank you Dr Bakshi.

    Dr Bakshi has cared for my son who has severe multiple life threatening allergies for many years. I trust him implicitly and so does my son (which is unusual as he has had more than one bad experience with other doctors and some nurses being heavy handed during blood tests etc). My son is always happy and confident when he knows he is going to visit Dr Bakshi. I couldn’t thank him enough for the care, commitment and time he has given us when dealing with such complex issues. I feel at ease knowing that my son is under Dr Bakshi’s care.

    Dr Bakshi took our concerns seriously from the start and maintained a professional manner throughout our appointments. He helpfully explained our options for allergy testing and how to keep our daughter safe after she was diagnosed with a food allergy. During a stressful time for our family, Dr Bakshi was kind and considerate, taking the time to answer all of our questions and concerns to ensure that we felt well-informed and more confident. We would not hesitate to recommend Dr Bakshi to others in a similar position.

    Dr Bakshi should have a Halo above his head! He is the Ferrari of the paediatric world, he accelerates whilst others are left behind. His ability to differentially diagnose has been evident with my son and daughter over multiple occasions, as well as friends/family that have been recommended. His professionalism, attentive nature, relaxed attitude over time spent with you, rapport with the children and most importantly his medical ability to apply a solution have always/will be appreciated. I highly recommend his services to all other parents, book without hesitation knowing that you are gaining one of the best paediatric consultant’s in the land

    Dr Dinka’s Bakshi provided excellent care for my 6 month old daughter, my GP wouldn’t listen to me or helped me when I needed it but Dr Bakshi did. He listened to me and helped me find the right solution for my baby. He cares about his patients. I felt comfortable asking him any questions about my daughter. I would take all of my kids to see him again if I ever need to see a specialist. Thank you so much
