“We only recently started seeing Dr Abrahamson for our early teenage son on the recommendation of our GP, and we have been very impressed. He is very reassuring, thorough and has great bedside manners. He explained the diagnosis and treatment options very clearly and patiently. We felt we were in safe hands and that he had our sons overall wellbeing in mind. We would enthusiastically recommend Dr Abrahamson. “

    I highly recommend Dr Ed Abrahamson. I always feel I am in safe and experienced hands with him, and trust him completely. He has a calm and reassuring manner at the same time as being honest, succinct and clear. My eldest daughter had a painful and swollen eye that was getting worse by the day. It was causing her a lot of discomfort, impacting her vision and was exacerbated by allergies. We had been given advice by another doctor, but my daughter’s eye continued to get worse. I sent Dr Abrahamson a photograph and although he had a full day of appointments, he asked to see my daughter. It is such a rare experience for someone to make time in this way and show genuine concern. Dr Abrahamson took one look at her and said we had to act to stop what looked like an infection from going any further. He knew that in that particular location, infections can start before a rise in temperature. Within 48 hours, my daughter’s swelling had subsided and she was almost completely back to normal. I was hugely relieved and my daughter was delighted to be so much more comfortable.

    Dr Abrahamson is an excellent doctor. He finally diagnosed my son with a pneumonia after having seen 5 doctors (4 NHS and a private one) and no one being able to identify the issue. He is not only a great doctor but very kind person too both to the kid and to the parents.

    Our son was referred to Dr Ed with persistent lumps on his neck and other symptoms. Dr Ed was astute enough to spot that our son was at risk of having Lymphoma and advised us to see a specialist to get a full biopsy "ASAP". He referred us to Mr Alastair Mace who performed the procedure and our son was later diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Thankfully the cancer was detected at a very early stage and the treatment my son received soon after was very effective. Dr Ed kept in touch with us and answered all our questions with tremendous kindness and care over a period of time that was very difficult for us. We will forever be grateful to Dr Ed for all that he has done for our son!

    Dr Ed has been fantastic. After ruling out anything worrying (with diagnostic tests) he took a holistic approach to my daughter's complaint and has been so supportive. She is now drastically better and happier, as am I. He was very reassuring and took his time to explain and reassure us. I feel very grateful that we can go back and see him in the future if required. It is nice to know he is there with many years experience and expertise.
