    Dr Ed Abrahamson has been a great help to our child; treating issues in relation to his breathing and a persistent cough. He is calm, knowledgable and discusses his treatment plan with parents to ensure all are aligned. Moreover, Dr Abrahamson takes the time to understand the medical condition and is available to answer additional questions as necessary outside of the appointment itself - this really goes to demonstrate his genuine desire to help patients. I consider it true stewardship. I would not hesitate in recommending Dr Abrahamson.

    A trip to Dr. Ed is a treat for my girls (3.5y and 2y). His gentle demeanor and desire to get to the root of the problem with genuine care and professional is what keeps us coming back. Not to mention he can diagnose a mystery rash on a dime. Dr. Ed’s responsiveness by phone and e-mail are another huge draw for this mom if little cute germbots who pick bugs up constantly. It’s important to have a strong ally like Dr. Ed. While a parent is a kid’s only true advocate, Dr. Ed is consistent support in that endeavor!

    If you are looking for a really fantastic paediatrician, then look no further. Dr Ed is the best and has been an absolute godsend to our family. We have immunocompromised boys - with what turns out to be a rare as yet un-named condition (which Dr Ed discovered). He first saw our 11 year only when he was about 6 months old, and my younger son (now 9) at only 2 weeks old. Dr Ed has not only looked after them medically ever since (and referred them to various specialised consultants where necessary), he has also cared about them too - and that counts for a lot. We have seen many consultants over the years, and I personally rate Dr Ed's opinion over all others. When in doubt/worried about the boys' health, I always turn to him and he has never let us down. He is spot on with his treatment and never over medicates unnecessarily. Added to that he is calm and reassuring both to the boys (and to us!).

    Dr Ed Abrahamson

    I am so grateful for your incredibly kind review and comments - I am lucky to have such nice patients and I gain so much by my interactions with the kids which I love,

    I saw Dr Ed Abrahamson regarding my 11 week old daughter who has been suffering with reflux. Based on this consultation, I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an experienced and extremely kind paediatrician with excellent bedside manner and a genuine care for his patients (including the parents). He took the time to listen to me and equip me and my husband with the necessary knowledge to make the right decision for our daughter and family. We are extremely grateful for his time and service.

    Dr. Ed has been our girls’ doctor for at least 8 years, we absolutely recommend him and think his rating should be more than 5! There are so many reasons for that, I’m not sure I’ll do him justice, but here are some.. First thing, he is a brilliant doctor, his diagnosis are fast and accurate, and the treatment never excessive / unnecessary . As a parent, I appreciate that he explains very clearly - not only what’s happening, but what the plan is (e.g. with chickenpox, he talked me through what might happen and in which cases I would need to call him or go straight to hospital) - and that he looks at how my girls are doing not just from a physical health perspective (he chats with them, it seems chit-chat, but I can tell he wants to know if they are happy or worried about something.. but the girls only perceive the genuine interest). My girls are at ease with him, from the very first time we met him (he was recommended because at 2 years old my eldest refused to be visited by any doctor - two minutes with Dr. Ed and we never feared going to the doctor again). He has a way with children that makes them comfortable, and at the same time he has authority. He listens very carefully and is always respectful when asking questions or visiting them, so they are relaxed and trust him. In all these years, he has given us fantastic care, advice, support.. he is also a genuinely nice and good person to know. And as my eldest always says: “Mum, he even jumped from a helicopter!" (that was for charity)

    Dr Ed has been looking after our twin daughters since they were born. We recently went to see him as one of my daughters, now aged 10, had been suffering from a range of symptoms since the beginning of the year including nausea and feeling as if there was something stuck in her throat. The GP had diagnosed acid reflux and prescribed a strong anti-acid which had seemed to work but recommended we ask Dr Ed for a second opinion before prescribing the drug long term. When we went to see Dr Ed he listened to my daughter intently and asked questions to try and help her explain how she felt. Whilst my daughter was out of the room, he then explained to me that he didn’t actually think it was acid reflux and why that was and then explained he thought it may be anxiety and she was suffering mild panic attacks. When she came back into the room, he explained in a very clear and friendly manner to my daughter what he thought was going on (that she did not have any serious illness) and that she should come off the strong anti-acid and taught her breathing techniques for dealing with times she might feel unwell. The relief to my daughter was huge and she looked as if a huge load had been lifted off her shoulders. Amazingly, since being to see him a couple of weeks ago, she has not had any episodes! Dr Ed was amazing at really listening and diagnosing the real issue rather than being quick to prescribe a drug when it was unnecessary. My daughter felt so much better having been heard by him and reassured that all was ok. He is fully focused on the child and how they are feeling and trying to understand the real reason behind the symptom rather than just treating the superficial symptoms. He also explains everything so clearly to the parents and makes you feel relieved and at ease. I would highly recommend him to any parents (and children) out there!

    I am genuinely overwhelmed by the time you have taken to write such a detailed and thoughful review and your exceptionally kind comments. I am so so happy the appointment went well and has helped your daughter. Thank you so so much

    I’ve been waiting to find ‘The’ Dr for my son since he was born. Someone i can fully and almost unconditionally trust with his health. After our first brief appointment with Dr Ed I found that he was very engaging and listened to all my questions and concerns, and addressed them all. The sprinkle on the icing was that he has his way with kids, and knows how to make them run after him (literally). He is honest, and very generous with his time and knowledge. I am so so pleased with my experience so far and so happy to have found him. Also, this is my first ever review for anyone or anything- so this should say a lot in itself!

    My experience is that Dr Abrahamson is clear, concise and direct. He interprets and listens beyond the 'headline news' of the patient's and their parents account of symptoms. He encourages dialogue, evaluates the context and the history. He is in no rush to 'move on' and has time to be present with the concerns of my daughter and make her feel comfortable and confident to explain, as best she can, her symptoms.

    Dr Ed is not gives great medical advice, but also takes time to listen and discuss fully. His manner is reassuring and friendly, both for the parent and the child. From the early days of visits with a newborn and as first time parents with no experience of babies, to now with an older child, his advice has been practical and invaluable. His abilities as a clinician are of course brilliant, without a doubt, but the care and warmth towards the whole family he displays makes such a big difference. The anxiety our 7 yr old child was showing seemed to lift almost immediately after our appointment with him; she felt included in the conversation and happily took the "yucky liquid" as Dr Ed had said it might help. You really couldn't ask for more from a paediatrician!

You have a question? You email him (no matter how ridicilous it is), and he emails you back almost instantenously. You have worries as a result of "google based self-diagnosis"?

    Best first appointment ever ! Dr Ed was extremely professional , very kind and has an amazing comforting energy in the Way he approaches his patient and most importantly gave me clear explanation of everything while also comforting me to not to worry but to be aware I’m very happy I was recommended to come see him and will definitely recommend him to anyone that asks.

    Dr Ed Abrahamson

    Wow, I am genuinely moved by such an amazing review - particularly during these times when consultations have to happen with us us in masks, vizors etc, it makes communication so much harder. Am so glad you found the appointment such a positive experience

    Second to none. Dr Ed's experience and way are always extremely reassuring in what is, to a layman, a worrying time. He's a kind person with a warmth towards our kids that makes them at ease and the pragmatism to never put them through any medication or treatment unless absolutely necessary. I genuinely can't recommend him enough. A brilliant paediatrician and now a great friend.

    Dr Ed Abrahamson

    I am really overwhelmed by this great review and kind comments; I am so happy that your experience has been positive with the kids and I look forward to many years relationship with them and you

    Everything is always great! Ed explains clearly what, why and when leaving no concerns / questions. Reacts very quickly on any follow up questions via e-mails (even if he's on vacation). Has great contact with our son and I am sure with any other kid since he's very kind.

    Dr Ed Abrahamson

    Thanks so much for this lovely review. It makes all the difference to know our approach is appreciated by the parents, and child!

    To begin with: 1. I was 15 mins late to my appointment with my newborn yet Dr Ed was so warm and took his time with us. 2. He even made time to give me tips on soothing colic - which she didn’t even have- when I carry my princess. We also spoke about the mid term effects of COVID 19. 3. I can’t thank him enough.

    Dr Ed Abrahamson

    Thanks so much for this! Am glad we managed to get you in for a full appointment (made my flight in the end!) and that it met your expectations

    Our daughter couldn’t be in safer hands with Dr. Abrahamson. He is a great doctor and and person. He provided a quick and accurate diagnosis, both times. He is really caring, takes his time to answer questions and address concerns. Often emailing out of hours to share tests results, really putting our minds at ease. We’re lucky she is under his care.

    I really appreciate this - thanks - it is a challenge explaining things clearly through the dreaded face masks! My Mum always complains that I mumble even without a mask! So am happy you were able to understand everything clearly!

    Dr Ed is a fantastic doctor and a fantastic person. He is extremely knowledgeable, kind, approachable and very thorough. He has a holistic family approach - to him, to keep the children well, the parents must be well. He’s been an amazing paediatrician to our daughter and has always been there for us as parents by guiding us whenever we need help. We have found ourselves asking Dr Ed for medical advice for both our daughter and for ourselves and he has always helped and guided us, whatever the problem may be. We are very very lucky to have him as our paediatrician.

    Dr Ed saw my 13 year old daughter who had been suffering with an aggressive cough, chest pains and difficulty in breathing on and off for a couple of months. She was exhausted and anxious; he was very calming and reassuring towards her, including her in the discussion (rather than talking about her and not to her - which was so important for her). He was not rushed, patiently showed her how to use an inhaler correctly and explained his diagnosis in an easy to understand way. She recovered so quickly after seeing him, I put it down not just to the medication (which thankfully worked), but also to the fact that she felt mentally relieved to have been seen by someone so experienced and empathetic who took her seriously. I also appreciated his email checking in on her a few days after seeing her.

    Dr Ed Abrahamson

    Thank you for such a detailed and thoughtful review which I appreciate so much and am very happy your daughter felt involved and happy she has recovered!

    He is both my daughters Pediatrician and I could not be happier. He is calm and poised and always able to set your mind at ease even if you are the most nervous of mothers. He takes the time to explain the issue at hand patiently and in detail. When you leave the practice all your worries have been solved and sorted. My case every single time!
