“Dr Bajaj was very kind and patient which is very reassuring for a first time patient. We took our son in for a routine check up and she was very thorough and identified a few other issues which may have been missed by our GP. Thankfully the tests came back alright but we were very grateful for the extra care to make sure everything was alright. “

The Doctor was recommended to us by our GP. Dr Bajaj is very professional, knowledgable and thorough. I would advise anyone to see the Doctor in regards to any developmental issues their children may be having because it was a positive experience. We and our child were very well treated and we will be making further appointments for follow up.

Dr Bijaj has been treating our son for ADHD for just over a year now. From day 1 she has been head and shoulders above any other Dr I have been seen by. She is fantastic with children and you can see she really cares about her patients. When you are talking she is genuinely engaged and listening which is such a change from your usual GP visit. Our son has made incredible progress with Dr Bijaj’s help, not just on the medical side but with other useful bits of information that she passes along. She takes the time to explain what is happening to our son in a way that he can understand. I only wish she were able to treat our whole family all the time. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

I am deeply touched by your review and am very grateful that I have been able to make a difference to your son's life even if it is in a small way ...

We visited Monika after our 1.1/2 years old son had experienced reoccurring illness, poor sleep over a period of 6 months. This had also resulted in two visits to hospital for high fevers and tonsillitis and a meningitis scare. We were exhausted, and very worried about our son’s wellbeing and possible impacts on his development. Monika provided a very thorough and extensive assessment at our first consultation and provided reassurance when it much needed. Our son was treated for mild asthma and we have seen a profound impact over a period of 5 weeks. She was contactable and responsive during appointments. I am happy recommend her expertise and very grateful for her involvement.

Having seen Dr Bajaj at a local private hospital, we were very pleased with her family friendly manner during our consultation for our son who was having a few bladder issues. Dr Bajaj was very thorough with her checks and made us feel reassured following each consultation with her. Our son had a number of tests done and medication prescribed which has now helped with the initial bladder issue.

We visited Dr Bajaj in April this year due to my son experiencing long term issues with his overall development. I found Dr Bajaj very knowledgable and proactive. Following our session we swiftly booked an assessment so that Dr Bajaj could carry out a number of test to identify my son’s developmental range. The assessment was over 2 hrs long and was carried out with patience and understanding. A thorough report followed with a diagnosis that we could finally work with. He was diagnosed with Child Developmental Delay and Dyspraxia. The report and his diagnosis has allowed my son’s school to start an application for funding and finally given us a direction to focus on and arrange the most appropriate support needed. We have just recently visited Dr Bajaj for another issue my son is experiencing and again have been guided extremely well with a kind and understanding manner. I highly recommend visiting Dr Bajaj if your child has any child developmental concerns.

My husband and I contacted Dr Monika Bajaj because we had concerns about our 8 year old son having physical and behavioural problems. The physical problems were ongoing excessive sweating at night and enlarged lymph nodes on his neck. Checks were done when he was 2 and 5 years old and we were told to go back to do more tests if this continue. He has difficulty with reading and writing and have some sensory issues. Our GP could not help and advised us to contact a good paediatrician who specialises in general paediatrics and has interests in children’s mental wellbeing. We met Dr Monika Bajaj who carefully listened to our concerns, physically examined our son, had a chat with him and asked us lots of questions to get a full picture of his physical health first, then she requested for him to have blood tests and an x-ray. Straight after our consultation we were sent for the tests. It was great that we didn’t have to wait and all tests were completed within half an hour. Based on blood tests Dr Monika Bajaj made some suggestions about our son’s dietary requirements and reassured us about his physical health. She gave us lots of tips on how to modify his behaviour. She explained possible reasons for his behavioural issues and gave us clear guidance on how to address it in the future. The assessment was very smooth, informative and reassuring. We would recommend Dr Monika Bajaj.
