I am a Consultant General Paediatrician, with
20 years of Paediatric experience.
Working with and treating children brings a smile to my face on a daily basis. I believe that children need a friendly face, friend, doctor and Paediatrician right from the beginning of their lives. I offer you and your child, health surveillance, acute care when a child is unwell, chatting about your general concerns and also years of Paediatric input into your child's life as they grow happily and healthily.
My aim is to to be a holistic, known part of your family and a friendly face your child will grow to know and trust throughout their childhood.
I grew up and did most of my schooling in South Africa and the USA (New Jersey). I am of Indian and Lebanese background. I speak English, Afrikaans (so can communicate with somebody who speaks Dutch as well), Hindi, Urdu and Zulu. I can understand Gujarati.

I brought my four year old in with an infection on Saturday. I am so impressed with your offering and delighted to meet Dr Fathima Mahomed. She is fantastic. I honestly thought this type of caring, accessible, prompt and professional care had disappeared. It reminded me of my paediatrician and pharmacist when I was growing up abroad. I have emailed my daughter's class parents about your medical service and will continue to tell all local families about your practice.
