My 5 year old boy was suffering with chronic diarrhea for months.
We had numerous doctors appointments, around 6 where he was seen by a number of different local doctors. He also had 3 blood tests and the doctors kept coming back with nothing was wrong. Obviously, there was something wrong as my son ended up not being able to control himself and soiling his pants most days. My son was being sent home from school and telling me he couldn’t control himself and it was getting worse. It was of course upsetting for him and for us as we didn’t know where to start.
My friend recommended the Paediatric Gut investigation clinic and so I made an appointment.
At the first appointment, I couldn’t believe it when they mentioned he had severe constipation. This had never crossed my mind as I thought it was the total opposite. Michael Hii explained what was happening and it made total sense.
My son started his treatment, we sent off stool samples and removed dairy and soya from his diet.
We went back to the clinic for blood tests and Femi was amazing as my son had a total massive melt down, Femi didn’t push anything , just took his time and engaged with my son and after about an hour managed to get the tests completed.
After a few weeks the results of his samples were in and the difference in the sets of results were amazing. Luckily the clinic were able to rule out Inflammatory Bowel Disease and able to tell me my son has a dairy and soya intolerance.
I am extremely grateful to Michael and Femi who have managed to resolve the problem and get my son back to leading a normal life with a change of diet. Mine and my son’s clinic experience were 10 out of 10. Thank you to everyone at the clinic who made it possible to help my boy.
Mr Khemani and his colleague were really wonderful at caring for our 4 day old with tongue tie. We were having difficulties with breast feeding and the wait on the NHS was very long so we decided to go to his tongue tie clinic.
Mr Khemani explained the procedure thoroughly and answered all of our questions, he was very reassuring and caring. He gave us extra time afterwards to breast feed so our baby would be full for her journey home and the procedure was very successful.
Thank you again for your wonderful services
My daughter and I attended the Spire St. Anthony hospital in Sutton for a blood draw. Femi was great in how he dealt with a young child, making her feel at ease and building repoire. The service we required was somewhat non-standard but Femi helped to organise all aspects, was very communicative the whole way through and we would not hesitate to return again.
We have had fantastic care and support from the minute our daughter was referred. She was very nervous about the tests to start off with, but was quickly put at ease by the wonderful staff at the hospital. All the care she received from Dr Hii, Femi and Chris was excellent. Everything was explained to her in a way that she understood and this made her feel confident and comfortable to ask any questions throughout. She is feeling so much better already after only 3 weeks. I have no doubt that this positive experience and outcome will help her with any medical appointments she may have in the future. Thank you!
My 5 year old son started having trouble hearing, Our GP checked both of his ears and told us that they were completely blocked with wax and we needed to have this removed. Over a six month period we saw three different ear specialists for wax removal but none were able to remove any of the wax.
I found the Paediatric Diagnostics Clinic and booked in with Mr Khemani. Mr Khemani was amazing with my son- he immediately put him at ease and explained everything simply to him. Mr Khemani cleared both ears easily and we had a hearing test immediately after which confirmed my sons hearing was within normal levels. I am thrilled and wish I’d found Mr Khemani first. We saw an immediate change in my son as he could hear normally again. Thank you for amazing service you provide.
I attended Gatwick spire recently and required an allergy test to support a diagnosis (with Mr Khemani, who also wonderful!). Femi took on this task, despite the fact that I am not a paediatric patient, and he was excellent. Easy to talk to, explained everything clearly and made the whole thing just go so smoothly.
I cannot recommend their services enough. After months of unanswered questions and being told my daughter will grow out of a constant cough, disturbed sleep and difficulty breathing I was given an answer and treatment in minutes.
The improvement in my daughter is amazing and I would not hesitate to visit again for any future issues that may come up.
I felt listened to for the first time since having my daughter 18 months ago and I cannot thank you enough.
My son and I were so worried about our appointment, but we were immediately put at ease by the friendly expertise, thank you Dr Sharma and Femi.
Well what can I say?
Mr Khemani and Femi are amazing! My 5 week old son was struggling with breast feeding and so I decided to have the division. The NHS were so busy, we didn’t want to wait and so decided to book an appointment at the Medwyn Centre in Dorking for a review. On arrival we had no wait, and were greeted in such a welcoming and warm manner. Mr Khemani explained everything very clearly and make sure both me and my partner were informed of every detail. The tie division it self took less time then the formalities and although it’s not please not hearing baby cry it is only a few seconds. We fed straight after the procedure and he was absolutely fine, as if nothing had happened.
I would highly recommend this service. Both Mr Khemani and Femi are amazing with children and really know how to reassure parents.
I was quite stressed about the blood test and skin prick test that my son needed. I needn’t have worried. Femi was superb with my son who was dancing in the room and eating his snack inbetween. Thank you so much.
Our 6 year old son required to have a number of blood tests within a couple months, all at different hospitals. We had poor experiences at other hospitals but Femi was excellent. We went to see Femi a few days before to talk through the process. On the day there were challenges with our son being extremely upset and running out of the consultation room a number of times. Femi handled the situation perfectly. He gained trust at the start and even at the end spoke to our son at his level telling him how brave he was. He knew when to be gentle and kind but also when to be a bit more assertive when there was an unwillingness to proceed! Nicest and most personal set of blood tests we’ve had! Thank you.
My daughter had been having obstructive sleep apnoea for a few months however I was unable to get a GP appointment so I found Paediatric Diagnostics online and made an appointment. Femi and Mr Khemani were very friendly, I sent a video of my daughter sleeping. He agreed that it was sleep apnoea and prescribed nasal drops which made such a difference and we can all sleep much better now. We later had a face to face appointment where he diagnosed my daughter with reflux and made a referral to Dr Hii at Paediatric Gut Investigation Clinic. I can’t thank him and Femi enough for their support and professionalism.
I bought my 4 month old Son in for a blood test with Femi, he was super kind, caring and attentive and put us both at ease. It is not an easy task to carry out this procedure on such a small baby but Femi was so kind and patient and it was a lovely calm environment. I could not recommend Femi and his team more, thank you!
Following on from an appointment with the paediatrician, my 8 year old daughter needed to have an unexpected blood test. She became quite upset and distressed at the thought of it but then Femi was sent our way to speak to her. After spending a few minutes talking to her, Femi had calmed her down and changed her mind so she was happy to have the blood taken. Femi is an absolute credit to Spire and has a magical way dealing with children , thank you so much!
My son came to have various tests and was instantly put at ease by Femi. He explained everything that was going to happen and was kind, gentle, funny and professional. Thank you Femi, you were fabulous and made a difficult morning a lot easier.
I’ve seen Dr Hii for a skin test and Femi for more skin tests and blood tests for my baby girl. I was so nervous and anxious about the blood test but Femi made me feel so much better and he was so relaxed which helped me!! Femi also always responds to my panic emails over the weekend and is so caring!!! I really appreciate everything both Dr Hii and Femi have done for my daughter! Thanks so much!!
My 5 month old son came to see Dr. Hii for a consultation and then Femi for a skin prick test. Dr. Hii was so thorough and arranged some tests for him. Femi was absolutely lovely with him for the skin prick test. It was so lovely to be able to sit down with both of them to talk things through properly and get their opinions and insights. They were both so reassuring. Thank you!
The skin prick went really well thanks to Femi professional and fun approach.
We visited the clinic for my 2.5 yr old daughter for an allergy skin prick test and a blood test. Femi was inviting and transparent from the initial start explaining what the tests would entail. As my daughter was so young she was given a local anesthetic in the areas which the blood was going to be taken. I was expecting that the blood tests would leave my daughter distressed, having not been a fan of injections in the past. But Femi was reassuring and playful, as she sat watching Peppa pig, completely un-phased by what was happening. The whole experience was comforting for both my daughter and me as a parent. She came away smiling with a paw patrol plaster and clutching her new cuddly toy. Would definitely recommend.
My son came to see Femi for skin prick allergy tests as previous attempts for blood tests were unsuccessful (not attempts by Femi i’d like to add)
George was nervous beforehand but Femi was absolutely brilliant with him, he explained what would happen and made it fun and asked George to help find the right allergens to test so really made him part of the process. He really engaged with George and I and explained the reactions to us. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend anyone to Femi!! Thank you again!
We wanted to thank you so very much for everything you’ve done for us over the past few days – your amazing ‘can do’ approach, your reassuring manner, your clear medical explanations. We’re so grateful for your time and expertise and feel that, with the SIBO test being positive, there’s a way forward now.
Many thanks once again
Very best wishes
Karen and Daisy
It was very good all the service and information provided by the doctors, assistants, nurses and staff of the Paediatric Gut clinic. Special mention to Dr Hii, Eleanor Smith that was always very helpful, quick and efficient, Paediatric Nurse Femi was very patient and knowledgeable, Dr Hi also provided accurate information and great experience. Thank you very much to everyone for the excellent care given to my daughter Steffi.
We brought our little girl to have her tongue tie assessed and removed. The service we received was amazing, out of this world. As new parents we were anxious, a bit overwhelmed and unfortunately got quite late for our appointment, but Mr Khemani and the very helpful Femi Omowo patiently waited for us and saw us nonetheless. They were very kind, gentle and understanding and helped our little girl. They thoroughly explained what the procedure will be and what to expect. The procedure was quick and straightforward and they allowed us some privacy afterwards to feed our baby and see if all is okay. Their professionalism and kindness put us at ease and made all the difference. We are very very happy and grateful for everything and couldn’t recommend enough!!
My 2.8 year old daughter has very small veins. She was recently hospitalised and had to have many blood tests. Never was the vein got first time which lead to my daughter having an extreme fear. Previously we would have to restrain her for such a test.
Femi completely put my daughter at ease he was so kind and cairing she instantly connected with her. When it came to taking her bloods it was a miracle the vein was got first time and the test was completed with minimal fuss and upset.
It was by far the nicest and most personal medical appointment we’ve been to.
From start to finish our experience at Paediatric Diagnostics has been fantastic.
My 6 week old daughter was able to see a consultant in days for her tongue tie division. Quick email correspondence from Femi who arranged the appointment and who’s kind and caring nature made us feel well looked after and not rushed on the day. Brilliant communication and teamwork from Femi and Mr Khemani made procedure quick and successful. Care was individualised and personal.
Would definitely recommend P.D to family/friends. Thankyou!
Femi was really fantastic at making sure both we and Archie were relaxed and happy, and he didn’t even notice the blood being taken once the magic numbing cream had done its job! Having an older child who is scared of needles, this made such a difference to us and I feel confident that Archie will be able to engage with anything like this that is necessary in the future due to his positive experience.
Thank you, Femi!
Thanks so much for looking after Lula yesterday during her Hydrogen Breath Test and blood tests. Lula has previously fainted after having a blood test and so is quite nervous about having them, however, you were very kind and reassuring to her which made the blood test a lot easier. She also really liked you and being able to watch the Boss Baby film whilst having the Hydrogen Breath Test all really helped with her anxiety.
