I highly recommend this clinic. I had my 20 weeks scan here. The staff was very friendly, polite, and very helpful. I have been seen by amazing consultant and he reassured me about something I was worried about. Being able to see all the pictures afterwards was great too! At the end of the scan I received a text message with a link to the pictures which could be downloaded and shared with my family. Loved it, I would totally recommend it.
Excellent service from start to finish, I booked Nuchal scan as I was given a high risk at the NHS and was put at ease straight away by a consultant who was very calming and knowledgeable. We decided to have all of our scans here as we felt in very good hands. Great experience!
I’ve been coming here for a few years now for my obstetric care and the doctors are nothing if not excellent and highly professional. I see Pat O’Brien (obstetrician) who is fantastic and Pran Pandya (scanning and fetal medicine) , who is brilliant. Also nice that they are always on time and never make you wait.
Dr. Sadia Bhatti highly exceded our expectations and we absolutely recommend her. She is a very experienced and talented professional who displayed the highest degree of technical skill and empathy.
Meeting Dr. Bhatti reassured us that we could have a positive birth despite the challenges. She explained the options and empowered us to make the choices that felt right for our circumstances. We opted for a gentle csection, and it was the most beautiful birth.
Thank you will never be enough! We will never be able to fully express how grateful we are to you for everything you did…
Thank you again for all of your help and excellent care during my pregnancy. I am very grateful.
Thank you for safely delivering our 3 children. You made every experience so pleasant! We always felt safe in your hands!
It’s not just skill that makes a good doctor but caring as well. Thank you for the concern and expertise you displayed throughout the pregnancy and birth. I truly felt that I was in good hands. We look forward to using you again some time in the future, please G-d!
Little things make a big difference. Appointments to fit your schedule and always on time, very friendly service and meeting the same people for your appointments is very reassuring.
