    Dr Bakshi was very knowledgable during my appointment and was able to provide a treatment that calmed my eczema within days and has since cleared it to the best it’s been for years. He was professional and friendly and not only gave advice on my allergies and skin condition, but also information on how they relate to my other autoimmune conditions.
