    I had an appointment with Dr Anita Amin today. I felt at ease straight away. Empathy was shown throughout the appointment. Dr Anita Amin was knowledgable, shared her views and most importantly listened to my preferences to achieve the best outcome. The appointment was not rushed. Instructions of prescription were very precise and a follow up email with a link further reinforced all what was said during the appointment and feel fully confident. I could not thank Dr Anita Amin enough and would be my first choice if I had to see a dermatologist again.

    I found Dr Amin to be extremely thorough and checked areas other than the issue I came to see her for. She was also very clear in her explanations and willing to answer any questions I had no matter how trivial. I left her office feeling that I had been very well looked after and equipped with sound advice on what to do next. I have since had two follow-up emails / reports from her which have been copied to my GP.

    I was very happy with the consultation. I would have liked to have sent more than one photo since the computer camera wasnt great. However, I was happy that i was able to confirm my daughters problem with her skin. I had a good explanation on it which i didnt have when i spoke to local doctor. I had 10 mins for diagnoses so felt rushed. I wasnt sure how much time i could have with Dr Amin but I felt that my mind was put to rest by what we discussed and it was not timed and i could have a discussion to answer any questions I had.

    Dr Anita Amin looked at the two photos I sent to her and immediately diagnosed my skin condition, something my GP surgery failed to recognise and treat correctly during the previous four weeks. Arranging a subsequent video consultation was easy, and Dr Amin was most helpful in explaining to me the treatment I needed. One week later I am well on the road to recovery and I cant thank Dr Amin enough for the care she has given to me.

    I was told the type of the skin problem and was prescribed Dermovate which seems to be working. I was told by Dr Amin I needed to have the dark area on my forehead needed to be investigated, even though it was seen a few years ago and I filled out the online form which was quite easy to do. I appreciate the concerns that Dr Amin voiced and am happy to have this looked at again.

The cream and medicine that she prescred me are helping me to get my skin back to normal. I would recommend contacting Dr Amin for a video consultation now that is difficult to see an specialist in person.

    Dr Anita Amin

    Thank you for your feedback. Although I can cover a lot of ground with a telephone call, I agree that video is much better. It seems easier to use a laptop or computer rather than a phone or tablet- although these devices have worked well too. It is frustrating when the technology doesn't do what's on the tin! Video consultations have been great for those who live far away, so there have been advantages to lockdown. I can't wait to start seeing patients face to face though.

Lastly, Dr Anita Amin was also very responsive via email for any enquiries I had throughout the course of our interaction. Highly recommend her for helping you treat your acne!
