“We turned to Dr Fathima when my daughter had nappy rash that wouldn’t clear. We needed a second opinion following lots of visits to our GP. she immediately put us at ease and reassured us that it was treatable, prescribing us a treatment that worked quickly. Not only that, but she kept in touch daily with us afterwards wanting updates and was always on hand replying to emails with follow up questions we had. Won’t hesitate to return to Dr Fathima in future “
