"What a refreshing change to see a busy well run clinic, the wait to see Dr Bakshi was very brief with the staff very helpful and friendly.
The consultation it's self was very informative, my daughter and I felt reassured and completely at ease with the advice we received from this very efficient caring GENTLE man.

Dr Bakshi's attention to detail is fantastic and being able to explain the complex issues involved in my daughters treatment clearly, is excellent. We didn't feel rushed in what is clearly a very busy clinic.  

He dictated his letter to my Health centre there and then enabling me to hear. The blood test was taken from my daughter within 10 minutes of leaving his room we didn't even have to leave the clinic area and he explained very clearly what will happen next.
The behind the scenes organisation is very clear to see.

The only criticism was the wait for the appointments previously to this, when her condition was more active. This time the appointment was postponed three times, but her condition is now less active after the excellent treatment given."

"Dr Bakshi, The most amazing find in the route to normality. My daughter is 11 and been ill since birth. Thought I was going insane. This Dr saved me and my daughter. He has a thorough understanding and is nothing short of a genius in medicine. He connects to Parents and children in a whole new level. His explanations and support are the most valuable asset in dealing with a complex child illness.He is readily available in the interim of appointments with advice. He is so humble, yet the greatest man in medicine. Won the heart of myself and my daughter. Dealing with her illness is not half as stressful Truly is one in a million."

"My daughter has an annual visit for advice on her allergies and asthma.  Dr Bakshi is terrific with her.  He carefully explains her issues, symptoms and treatments.  She is then able to talk about anything that is worrying her.  She is very grateful for the help and advice received on her nut and egg allergies.  We also had a very good and helpful conversation about the future - as she moves towards GCSE years - and how she could manage her hay fever at key times.  This was a refreshing appointment - full of help and information - and a genuine feel that Dr Bakshi will do everything he can to support a young girl control her condition."

"Dr Bakshi really made us feel welcome today, and made us feel like he had a genuine interest. This is the first time in a while I actually felt that the consultant knows what he is talking about. He gave constructive advice and a good plan put in place. I understand my sons allergies and eczema a lot better now and feel like we are getting the help we need. Fantastic Doctor and gives you the time you need. I hope we continue to see dr Bakshi from now on."
