Patients Love Us


Very happy to work with Dr Yasmine the Nutritionist to correct my 2y old son’s food behavior and to increase his calorie intake in order to gain weight (he was born premature with low weight and he has Autism). I learned a lot from Dr Yasmine on calorie dense food and how to include them in everyday food in fun ways. Her advice and guidance helps us a lot in the short term and will definitely continue to follow them for long term results.


I would highly recommend Nutritionist Yasmine Haddad. She has a great approach with children with special needs and creates a bond with them that keeps them committed and has a better understanding of what is going on and helps them do better and better.


Being a new mum of my 6-month-old daughter with Autism, I've been eager to try her on various foods I see on the internet for babies. Speaking to Nutritionist Ms Yasmine on starting nana on solids has saved me a whole lot from all the experiments I would have conducted.
