    DR D Bakshi has been treating my don for a sevear peanut allergy. 1st time when my son had a reaction we took him to A&E and did request that we would like him seen and tested by the allergy clinic to see its defo allergy reaction to nuts. Hospital told us to wait for another reaction. (No thank you) So that same week we saw Dr Bakshi at the Nuffield hospital in leicester and the following week got his allergy tested. Since then if i needed any advise or help, Dr Bakshi has been soo prompt and worked with us all the way. Dr Bakshi is a such a amzing doctor. I know my son is in safe hands. Thank you Dr D Bakshi once again.. as if it was the Lri A&E we would have had to wait for another reaction and that other reaction is very life threatning.

    I couldn’t be any more pleased with the service we got. After months of back and forth with the GP working out what was causing my sons bad eczema and skin we came to a dead end. Dr Bakshi has helped us in a matter of weeks come to the bottom of my sons allergies and has found he has life threatening allergies we would have never of found out without his help! Thank you so much we can’t recommend you enough!

    I cannot recommend Dr Bakshi enough! He has helped our 3 year old boy so much. We have been back and forth to our GP with regards to our sons eczema but nothing seemed to work. Dr Bakshi took one look at our son and knew straight away what was causing his skin issues. Dr Bakshi has gone above and beyond to help care for our son. The care and passion oozes out of him. If it wasn't for Dr Bakshi we would not of known our son has 2 life threatening allergies and many others too! Which does not bear thinking about. Our family and friends cannot believe the transformation in our little boys skin, mood, behaviour and he has actually started to sleep at night! We are so grateful for everything Dr Bakshi has done for our family.

    I'm so glad we made the decision to book an appointment with Dr Bakshi regarding our sons eczema. After months of going back and forth with doctors with no resolution to the problem, our sons eczema around his eyes got worse. Within 5 minutes of our appointment, Dr Bakshi diagnosed our son with infected eczema and prescribed him the correct medications and creams. A week later, the difference in his skin was unbelievable (as Dr said it would be!). It has completely cleared up and we can now manage his eczema in the correct way. Thank you again - Dr Bakshi will now be the Dr we go to regarding our sons skin!

    Absolutely fantastic. My son was diagnosed with the issue in less than a minute. Something my usual doctors had been unable to do over the course of three months. Three days later all rashes have disappeared and we now know what to avoid. Thank you.
