“Amazing experience for my 9 year old daughter. Dr Mahomed was incredibly gentle, experienced, knowledgeable and fun! She made my daughter feel at ease, quickly winning her trust and guiding her through the observation and review process and discussing the next steps. All within a very child-friendly and positive environment. I would recommend Dr Mahomed to children of any age! She really knows how to connect with them! “

    Dr Mahomed is the best Paediatrician I have seen. She is very knowledgeable and skilled at diagnosing a young baby. She had a great way with my son, who smiled throughout. She takes time to explain the diagnosis and answer any questions.

    Dr Fathima, is so lovely very professional and knows exactly what she is talking about, it is so comfortable when I go to see her with my two boys, 3 and 6 years old, they both don’t stop talking and moving, and she managed to occupy both of them so we get a chance to talk. My kids love going to see her and she just makes them feel so special and she just had a natural warmth about her, the kids will tell her exactly what is wrong, and they know Dr Fathima will make them feel better. I have visit Dr Fatima for a few different reasons for my kids, and she’s very through, does a full check, and her advice and médecine she sometimes prescribes works every time. I highly recommend Dr Fathima, we travel over an hour just to see her. If you have any worries with your children please don’t hesitate to book an appointment. Thank you for everything from our side Dr Fathima. Regards Shanteer

    She is the best paediatrician I have met and got amazing knowledge and experience. Dr Fathima Mahomed has always been calm, caring and reassuring; she listens to you and takes special time with my kids and it feels so nice that I can trust her decisions for both my kids. My husband and I felt very confident with her decisions. She has excellent communication and diagnostic skills. A highly respectable doctor, I could not be more pleased with the service and care provided by Dr Fathima Mahomed.

    Dr Fathima is quite simply the best pediatrician we have ever seen. Our daughter was terrified of going to the doctor after a bad experience - Dr Fathima found a special way of elating her fears and formed a rapport to the extent that she now gets excited about visits. Our second born had some difficulties in his early months and Dr Fathima checked in daily during this period to offer support which was a lifesaver at the time. Replies to emails very quickly and almost instantly out of hours and at weekends. Couldn’t rate her more highly!
