We had to abandon the video call and switch to a phone, otherwise the appointment made me feel at ease, informed and cared for.
Dr Amin is always very caring and conscientious, and makes sure that she takes the time to explain things and ensure that she has answered all of your questions. I have never felt rushed, which sometimes happens with consultations.
I have seen Anita Amin three times over the last two years for various skin conditions With out exception i found her easy to talk to and her ability to diagnose the problems i have had, The treatments as always been most effective and i would not hesitate to recommend Anita to anyone who is in need of an excellent medical consultant Thanks for your all your help
Excellent. Compassionate and explained all procedures. Thank you
A very kind and sympathetic doctor. In these difficult Covid-19 times Dr Amin visited me at home and was extremely careful with hygiene and very gentle and understanding of my symptoms. She made me feel so much better with her explanation.
Professional and pleasant.
Dr Amin was very knowledgeable; we had a productive consultation and I would recommend her services.
Very good and spent time at explaining symptoms
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.
So grateful to Dr Amin for her professionalism, kindness and care. She was very informative and patient, taking care to explain and discuss. I plan to see her for regular mole checks now.
Professional, knowledgeable, friendly, competent, communicative.
Dr Amin helped me ask her the right questions and supplied support and empathy for my condition.
My experience with Dr Amin was that she was kind, professional, efficient and I would highly recommend her.
I had an excellent consultation with Dr Amin. She is clearly very knowledgeable and thorough and is good at explaining things in lay terms. She is reassuring and empathetic and I would highly recommend her.
Dr Anita Amin
Thank you for your feedback. Most of the time, rashes can be sorted with simple treatment. Please can you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can try to find an answer for you. Best wishes, Anita
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.
Informative and kind consultant.
Professional and clean, made me feel comfortable in a worryImg time - gave good explanation and talked through best options. The nurses assisting were also very good although might be in need of a new blood pressure monitor as didn’t want to work properly.
I came away feeling thoroughly reassured about the condition of my skin.
Dr Amin was very helpful and efficient in sorting tests for me. Many Thanks
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.
All good. Was seen on time and was very happy with diagnosis.
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.
Video consultation was quick and easy with the necessary diagnosis being made. Very good.
It was the first time we have had a video appointment with a Dr and it was a great experience. Being able to chat with a professional from our own home is something that should become the norm. Dr Amin was so friendly and explained everything clearly to us and we left the call feeling like we had a good set of next steps. Thank you!
Cant rate this lady enough, professional, accommodating, comforting and relatable. Secretary also quick at replying and honest. THANKYOU
Dr Amin was very kind and helpful. We found the consultation useful and informative.
Sympathetic and easy to understand
I was having an allergic reaction due to overuse of skincare products. I had a video consultation with Dr Amin. She was kind, polite and listen to my long story and to all my symptoms. 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 Amin always treats me with real care and empathy, she takes the time to be thorough and the consult is not rushed, with clear explanantions of everything. The new online system worked very smoothly and the instructions were clear.
The consultation was exactly what I hoped for. Dr Amin was friendy and gave me time to explain my problem. I was impressed with how quickly I was seen and the treatment I have been offered is soon too. I was very satisfied.
Dr Amin was very easy to talk to and gave a reassuring explanation of my condition and treatment required.
Very informative and came up with different solutions, I liked that Dr Amin took into account my reluctance to begin Roaccutane and antibiotics without pressuring me towards them. The video call also worked well.
Very calming manner, explained everything thoroughly.
Dr Amin treated my elderly Mother with a patient, thorough and very kindly bedside manner. She took the time to repeat her advice as often as needed for the patient. Her responsiveness and availability for a consult was exemplary. It was a very reassuring experience and I look forward to my Mother having favourable results with the treatment programme.
Dr Amin was very pleasant and reassuring and I felt at ease talking to her about my condition, I feel confident that she can help me.
Very good service. Thank you
Over the course of several months I was frustrated with several different incorrect diagnosis on a fairly severe skin condition and treatments prescribed not working then I was referred to Dr Amin Initial consultation -Dr Amin diagnosed exactly what condition I have and prescribed effective treatment . Am very relieved to finally know exactly what condition I have -sincere thanks
I found Dr Amin exceptionally approachable and calming. Her evident knowledge and personal experience with skin conditions, such as mine, made for a easy call which calmed my anxiety about next steps and possible outcomes. I can’t rate Dr Amin enough.
Dr Amin was excellent even though I couldn't get the video link to work
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.
Very helpful, gave a lot of options for me to look into and sent links which was very helpful after the consultation
Dr Anita Amin was extremely friendly and immediately put me at ease. She explained my skin problem clearly and provided very clear instructions as to how I needed to treat it. Would definitely recommend.
I had a very positive experience with Dr Anita, she was friendly and listened to my concerns carefully recommending the appropriate treatment.
Utterly delightful - a most enjoyable consultation - very professional and knowledgeable
A first experience with an online consult and it was great.
Hi had a great experience, the receptionist Toni made organising paperwork really easy and made me feel at ease with my video appointment. The video appointment was easy to manage and I now feel like my problem is completely being dealt with. This problem has been going on for over 2 mo this now and there’s been no there time I have this good. The video appointment was great and I thank you.
I had a video consultation which I was very impressed with and thought worked really well given the current circumstances. Anita had a lovely manner about her and was very informative and I felt very reassured after the call.
A very reassuring Dr. with patience and excellent calming manner. Completely put my mind at rest and explained what she thought the problem was and what the next steps were.
Amazing experience overall, from the face-to-face consultations to the video consultation. Secondly, Dr Anita Amin was very well organised; down to the shipping of the prescription during this pandemic to avoid any delays, allowing me to continue my treatment course without any breaks. 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!
