“We were very lucky to see her when our anxiety was hitting the roof cause of a recurrent fever with our boy ! She was thorough with her check up and most importantly patient. Another virtue that makes a dr great is her quality of listening to the patient or their parents without exasperating and dr Kagalwala excels in that ! She HEARD us , she gave us TIME , she was EMPATHETiC , she was REASSURING and most importantly RESOURCEFUL ! She made sure all the tests which will help us alleviate our fears are done on the day. God bless her and her wonderful team. Also, she kept giving credit to her team too which is a quality of a good human being. “

    My daughter and I saw Dr Kagalwala at The Clementine Churchill hospital today. I found Dr Kagalwala very attentive, reassuring and engaging. She spoke to my daughter (9y/o) directly, took time to explain everything to her and gave her valuable advice, even on issues not directly related to the reason for our visit. She put my and my daughter's minds at ease.

    Dr. Fatima Kagalwala instilled me with confidence: this was clearly an area in which she has clear expertise. She took the time to listen to the background I gave her carefully and patiently and there was no sense of feeling rushed. She gave lots of tips as to how small changes could be made to help things with my son, and we agreed a clear plan of next steps.
