Explanation

Dr Bakshi has been a life send. Efficient, kind, pleasant and transparent. We were struggling with our sons skin for months. Getting nowhere with the NHS and our GP. Dr Bakshi knew the issue within moments prescribed the right creams and anti biotics. We saw improvements within 48 hours. He’s allowed our son to be a child again. I will be forever grateful.

Explanation

Video consultation for test results felt rushed. Didn't seem that he had read notes in advance - for example we were asked if we had a cat when the cat had formed much of our discussion in our initial appointment. Was surprised at the high additional cost against the time spent for the results consultation - had assumed it was part of the initial consultation fee and it wasn't explained that it would be in addition. We also don't seem to have a very clear "next step" plan of action/ follow up.

Explanation

My son has been suffering from Eczema for over 5 years, he was previoulsy treated by NHS or I should say mistreated. They would confuse it's eczema bullae flareups with chickenpox, monkeypox or something else but never took him serioulsy. Had to go private and when searched online Dr Bakshi came up at the top, we decided to go ahead hoping so many 5 star reviews can't lie. Indeed this was the case, after three appointments and a few detailed tests, my son's eczema is much more manageable. He's not getting any flare ups nor he's itchy. I should also mention, how much Dr Bakshi cares about his patients. He took it as a challenge and was highly available even via phone and emails. He would even reply us from his holidays, i mean this was the level of care we received and don't believe we'll find it anywhere. Thank you Dr.Bakshi, you're a rockstar!!
