    I cannot speak highly enough of Dr Bakshi. Extremely professional, patient and the best expert knowledge out there. He explains everything in layman’s terms and is always there to answer any concerns. Just when you think that nothing seems to go right, Dr Bakshi reassures you that things will get better. The support doesn’t end after the 40 minutes appointment and a follow up letter either; Dr Bakshi provides great aftercare and is always there to answer a quick email or a phone call. When the NHS fails you, and your GP says there is nothing more they can do, you become extremely grateful to have found such a brilliant doctor who is able to help. What a GP couldn’t cure in months, Dr Bakshi managed to cure in just under two weeks with the right diagnosis and tests. Thank you so much for taking such a great care of my daughter.

    My family meet doctor Bakshi for few times, regarding my 4 years old son's speech delay and behaviour. I have never get a better service in UK. He was so nice and friendly with my child and was look at him very well. He pay attention to all details and gave us a really important tips and advice for the future. Doctor Bakshi made an excellent health report and send it to school, GP and speech and language therapist. So they know how to work with Anton. Fortunately everything was alright with my son, but I will definitely come back to doctor Bakshi if something happened in the future. I recommend him to everyone!

    Dr Bakshi was such a polite, understanding and knowledgeable doctor. We had been given so much conflicting advice regarding our daughters allergy that we decided to pay and see a doctor who specialises in allergies. This was the best decision we had made. His knowledge was remarkable, he’s given us confidence in weaning our daughter again. He’s very thorough and having the follow up meeting was very useful so we could ask more questions that we didn’t think of at the time. My husband and I were extremely pleased with the service we received and will be visiting my Dr Bakshi again I the future.

    My daughter had complex allergy conditions including food allergies, pollen allergies and eczema. After more than 1 year of the condition gradually getting worse I took my daughter to see Dr. Bakshi on a private basis, Dr Bakshi listened really well to our concerns, did a number of tests including skin prik, patch test and full blood test. Using this holistic approach Dr. Bakshi was able to diagnose a number of different issues contributing to my daughters allergies and was able to provide a treatment plan. Within the 1st week of treatment, my daughters eczema and allergies dramatically reduced even beyond what we had expected. Dr Bakshi is clearly an expert in his field and very easy to communicate with. He was able to explain complex medical conditions in easy to understand language. I have no doubts that without Dr Bakshi's help my daughter condition would not have improved. Both myself and my daughter are grateful to Dr Bakshi and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

    Dr Bakshi is a wonderful doctor, he is by far the best Paediatrician we have seen and my son has been under allergy clinics for a decade! He always explains everything so that it is clear, not only to you as a parent, but also your child. We always leave with a little more knowledge than when we arrive, so we have never left dissappointed! I you want a doctor who can communicate very well with your child; patiently explain everything so you understand exactly what is going on and what your options are, then Dr Bakshi is the one for you! We have been seen by Dr Bakshi for about 5 years now and he has gone above and beyond for us, we truly could not ask for anything more.

    My son has severe food allergies which were undiagnosed until I saw Dr Bakshi. After the first few minutes of the first consultation I felt that someone was actually listening to me and addressing my concerns. Dr Bakshi has always gone the extra mile to help us and to guarantee we got the care we needed. I cannot recommend him enough.

    I highly recommend Dr Dinkar Bakshi, he is a very experienced Paediatrician and allergy specialist who has extensive training in some of the best centres in UK. He is a very busy consultant with a well established practise across Midlands and London, his high patient satisfaction speaks for itself. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
