    Explanation

    Patient seen for:
    I had pretty much given up on finding a cure for my falling hair. None of the other doctors I'd seen seemed to take it very seriously, nor did they have an answer as to why it was falling out at such speed. I was quite struck by Dr Christos' kindness. He was very reassuring, understanding why I might be anxious – not just about losing my hair but what might be the underlying cause. He diagnosed the problem straightaway, arranged a biopsy very quickly, and as soon as the results were confirmed, started me on treatment. This is going well and my hair has stopped falling and I feel optimistic that it will regrow. It makes a big difference when a Dr takes so much care; not only to discover what's wrong but also in communicating understanding for the patients distress. I am very impressed.

    Explanation

    Dr Christos has been exemplary and I'm really glad I was referred to his practice. He has been caring and reassuring throughout and I feel that he really has my best interests in mind. He has put me on an effective treatment plan for my condition and I see him every three months for follow-up - I am already noticing a difference. Dr Christos examined by scalp and knew what was wrong with me before he even did the biopsy, he was correct and put me on a treatment plan immediately. Suffering from hair loss at age 29 is very frightening but Dr Christos has remained positive throughout and I really feel like this can be fixed and it's all thanks to his knowledge and expertise - I cannot recommend this medical professional enough. He is evidently a leader in his field and the best hair/ scalp Dermatologist in London.

Christos is a great general dermatologist and can deal with any skin problem but If you have problems with your scalp, hair or nails there is no one better in London. "
