“Dr Dev Shah was very attentive and on first sight, he apologised for keeping me waiting. Dr Dev Shah made me feel comfortable enough to ask questions and explained to me all the questions I had asked. I left feeling much informed and better. “

    My experience with Dr Shah has been excellent. He was the third dermatologist I saw about my concern, and the only one to really listen and understand how it was impacting me and from there, advise on a course of treatment. I'm delighted that the treatment has been very effective and would highly recommend him to others.

    I am very hard of hearing and find the wearing of masks presents a particular difficulty because I rely on being able to lip read to supplement my hearing. Dr Shah made sure that I understood what my treatment involved and encouraged other staff to be aware of my needs. I experienced no discomfort during the procedure or subsequently.
