“We were finding it very hard seeing our child suffering from severe reflux. Our GP kept changing his formula and treatment plans, none of which worked. The baby was unhappy, and we were heartbroken to see him suffering. We were recommended to arrange for him to see Dr Maalouf. We felt reassured by Dr Maalouf from the outset. He changed the treatment plan, explaining his decision to us. He told us what we would happen over the next 10 days, all of which was correct. Our son saw benefits within a week and is a very happy baby now. Dr Maalouf is very kind and reassuring. He put us at ease from day one and for any parents struggling with a baby suffering from reflux, our advice is to see Dr Maalouf.“

    We went to see Dr Maalouf after being back and forth between our gp and a&e and not getting a diagnosis for our little boy who was in a lot of pain. Dr Maalouf knew immediately what was wrong with him and prescribed the necessary medication. Within a week our little boy was back to his usual happy self. We were so happy with Dr Maalouf, especially with how knowledgable, efficient, and reassuring he is. I trust him implicitly and would highly recommend him.

    Dr. Maalouf is pediatrician to both of our children, since they were born. He is extremely responsive to our questions on email and always has the right instinct for what the level of treatment and concern should be. Dr. Maalouf has a very international perspective which is helpful, especially taking into consideration the travel we do and the vaccinations we need. The office is always flexible with fitting us in with both kids. We feel very lucky to have Dr. Maalouf looking after the health of our kids!

    I was very disappointed to be totally rushed in my appointment with a nurse called in to wheel my babies buggy out of the room before I had even put her shoes on. We were in the consultation for less than 10 minutes.

    Dr Elia Maalouf

    I am extremely sorry if you feel you were rushed through your appointment. At times I am covering the inpatients and intensive care unit at the Portland Hospital as well as running the outpatient clinic. Occasionally I am called to attend an emergency situation in the hospital. A classic example was my clinic on Friday 12th October, 2018. I will never rush a patient unless I am certain of my diagnosis and management plan and only in a situation when I am urgently required in the hospital. All of my patients know that I am contactable by email and that I always respond to their concerns and queries promptly. In case you feel we did not cover any of your concerns during the consultation please feel free to email me at any time.
