Dr David Mabin

Ever since we returned to Devon Dr Mabin has been the lead consultant in charge of our daughter.
When I first met him, it was a time of massive upheaval, I was hugely stressed from having a baby born incredibly early at 25+1.Gestation. There were frequent hospital moves with constant shifting about,(not his doing) He was so kind, so understanding and he reserved judgement, despite my coming across as quite rude and insensitive at times.
He's been nothing but a support to our family over these last two years, watching our daughter grow and develop, Always sitting in the background empowering us as parents and having us believe that we are making sound decisions about her care.
There have been long periods spent on the children's ward, where I've suffered more than a little cabin fever from being shut in a cubicle for too long.There's been tears, there's been upset and I have to say he dealt with it all fabulously, always taking so much care to make sure I take something positive away from our conversations.
Further more, I know I'm not alone in this view as he is a very popular Doctor. I hear good things about him all the time in our community of parents who have all had children stay on the Neonatal ward. Highly recommended * * * * *
