Thanks to Professor Parviz Habibi we finally had a precise diagnose for my child's recurrent respiratory problems and an action plan that works in preventing the need of hospitalization. I strongly recommend him for the treatment of respiratory illnesses.

Profesor Habibi is a knowleageable and top professional with great eye for detail and care for his patients. The moment me and my son met him, realised how charismatic and lovely he can be with parents and his young patients. He is also a very patient doctor willing to go the extra mile and he always takes time to answer any doubts from his patients. He is very experienced in making diagnosis and he also has the people skills that every patient look for in their doctor. He listens and communicates in such a way that makes his patients feel welcomed and looked after in every follow up. He also counts with a close team of professionals that add to the quality of his service. Every time I have needed help him and his team have always been there to assist us. I really trust professor Habibi to look after my son and I highly recommend him to every parent.

Dr Habibi has been wonderful with the ongoing treatment of my eldest son. He is always on the end of the phone when needed and he explains things thoroughly to me so I have full understanding. He never makes the appointment feel rushed
