My experience with Fathima is outstanding. She met my daughter when she was hospitalised at the age of 3 months. Since then, she has followed my daughter and has treated her each time she needed. Dr Mahomed is excellent, not only in treating patients but also in explaining things to parents, being more than available all the time. She is reassuring and I trust her more than anyone.

We came in to see Dr Fathima Mahomed after a lot of frustrating and fruitless visits to our local GP. Dr Fathima is very professional, knowledgeable and caring. She listened to our concerns, addressed the immediate problem and formulated a long term plan to resolve the baby’s ongoing health issues. I am happy to say we now have a much healthier baby and comfort in knowing if something does go wrong, we have her expertise at hand.

Consulted Dr Mahomed in her capacity as a general Paediatrician at The Portland Hospital for my DD age 11, suffering from laryngitis and a longstanding stomach pain. She quickly and methodically discerned the symptoms as presenting due to two different causes and went on to prescribe appropriate remedial action to be taken as well as medication. The remedial approach worked well for my daughter. Most pleasant bedside manner and knows how to handle her younger patients. Takes time to give advice, actively listens to the patient (and not just the parent), explains and ensures patient feels comfortable about the approach adopted. Booking process was easy (via The Portland's booking desk) and a suitable slot was offered. GDPR-compliant comms follow fairly quickly after the consultation and a rectification was equally quickly acted upon. Initial consultation was GBP250 and the follow-up was, less usual, priced the same. Clinic easy to reach and consultation hours extend to after school hours and full working week.

We are delighted with the care Dr Mahomed has shown our 18 month old daughter. Dr Mahomed has helped our daughter in various ways since we started seeing her. She has given very useful tips about our daughter's diet, which has helped her constipation. She understood from looking at our daughter that she may have anaemia, which was confirmed by an iron test. Since starting iron supplements our daughter has seemed much more healthy, so we are very grateful to her for raising this. Dr Mahomed is also very responsive. Our daughter had terrible stomach pain one night which really frightened us. Dr Mahomed responded right away to our email and put us completely at ease. We would have no hesitation in recommending her to other parents, and we will continue to use her as our paediatrician."

Dr Mohamed has been excellent with my son. We are very happy we were recommended her after our son continued to have a number of different health issues. She was friendly and made our son feel relaxed and comfortable from the first time we saw her. She took great care in listening and understanding the problem. Her medical explanations were clear and treatment plans have been very effective. We wish we would have met Dr Mahomed earlier!

My daughter was very “inspired” by Dr Mahomed. Dr Mahomed had first had experience of various issues which my daughter was grappling with and therefore the advise she had to give was listened to intently. My daughter had at last an explanation for some of the issues she had been dealing with and some practical advise about how to feel better. Her medication will take a while to work but we look forward to seeing Dr Mahomed in February when I hope my daughter will be feeling much better. My daughter will soon turn 18 and I fear we will struggle to find her replacement !!

Dr Mahomed has been brilliant with both of our children and I could not recommend her more highly. In both cases, our children have been extremely well looked-after, which has been very reassuring for us as the parents. At the same time, the children feel very comfortable with her and she really makes an effort to explain everything and build a good rapport with them.

Ever since our arrival in London we have been in a desperate search of a qualified and reliable paediatrician to take care of our kids. Being in a new environment and country, we feel very lucky to have met Dr. Fatima Mahomed in Portland Hospital who has become not only our family doctor but also best friend to our children. Seeing her for periodic check-ups is something what always triggers a smile on the face of our kids, as they know they are visiting a place where they would be welcomed, listened to and treated in the best way possible. Apart from being a real professional whose diagnoses and treatment plans have proven true and healing, Dr. Fatima has authentic ability to understand and share the feelings of others through which she connects with people and makes one feel heard, relaxed and being taken care of. This is truly something unique and we feel very lucky to have met Dr. Fatima and will hopefully continue seeing her throughout our stay in UK.

"Dr Fathima was able to diagnose our son and devise an effective treatment for it in one appointment. Before, we had been receiving wrong diagnosis from the GP, which ended up aggravating our son’s condition. We cannot thank her enough also for her availability to reply our emails (sometimes very late) at those critical times when we are unsure on how to deal with symptoms."

Dr. Mahomed is the best. I am so happy we found her. When my daughter was 4 months old she developed a serious respiratory infection. Being a new mom and fairly new to the country I was super fortunate to have had Dr. Mahomed. She diagnosed her promptly, treated her, and checked up often. I've never experienced this level of care. In addition to being an incredible doctor her bedside manner is fantastic, she is so sweet with my daughter and patient with me (a crazy new mom). I highly recommend her.

Dr Fathima was excellent. She helped my daughter to get better very quickly. It can be really hard for a little girl to talk about problems in their private areas, but Dr Fatima made my daughter feel confortable.

Our 2.5 years old daughter had severe constipation with cold, cough and fever. We went to GP at least 4 times before seeing Dr. Fathima Mahomed. It wasn't useful to see the GP. Our little suffered every day and she was in pain all day. Finally, we pushed hard on GP to refer us to the Paediatrician. We were lucky to choose Dr. Fathima. She was fantastic. Dr. Fathima identified the problem within minutes and suggested necessary treatment. Within 4-6 hours our daughter's problem was sorted. Dr. Fathima is very patient and heard all our concerns. She assured us about the treatment and provided us with all the information. Also, gave us nutritional advice. She is extremly knowledge and friendly with the kids. We are grateful to have her as our Doctor. We will keep as our go-to paediatrician in future.

I can't recommend Dr Mahomed highly enough. She is an outstanding doctor, unlike any other paediatrician I have ever come across before, incredibly professional, knowledgeable and accurate, as well as having a natural way with babies (my baby daughter absolutely loves her!). Dr Mahomed combines deep medical knowledge, with a strong sense of observation (which is so crucial, especially when it comes to babies), and great empathy for parents too. My husband and I first came across Dr Mahomed following a very stressful misdiagnose by another doctor, when our daughter was about 2 months old - she was calm, assertive and accurate, and has continued to see our daughter since, helping us greatly in various occasions. We have recommended doctor Fathima Mahomed to several friends, all of whom were very happy and impressed.

Good morning Dr Mahomed, I want to personally thank you for the care and attentiveness provided to our daughter. You are very patient and know children (especially those who are young) need more time to build trust. You were able to do this with ease. Not only that, your experience showed when narrowing down her condition and providing a solution (this also includes referrals to specialists). This the first time we have chosen to go private and initially had 5 names to choose from. We checked reviews and couldn’t agree more with your previous patients. You are an amazing pediatrician and truly glad we chose you. Your service and care is nothing short of 5-star and definitely recommend you to anyone who needs a brilliant and trustworthy paediatrician.
