    Patient seen for:
    A pleasure to have Dr Alkali for my roaccutane treatment. Understood the reasons of why I wanted to start this medication after around 10 years of struggling with acne and not having any luck with other medications. Appreciated my worries of side effects so started on a low dose and slowly titrated up leaving me with manageable and very little side effects so far. During coronavirus it has not been possible to have face-to-face consultations but telephone consultations have always been on time, thorough and efficient.
