“If you are in the need to find a highly skilled Dermatologist and do not know where to begin, I cannot express how impressed I am with the ultimate professional treatment I have received from Dr Latheef and his Team. From the initial visit I felt complete confidence with my diagnosis and relief at the obvious depth of understanding, knowledge and expertise. Dr Latheef takes care to listen, explains with great clarity and applies an abundance of patience to answer questions and address all issues and concerns regarding treatments. Dr Latheef really is the real deal and No 1 in the field of Dermatology and I have so much to thank him for.“

10 years of eczema, however the last 3 years has been unbearable. Unable to shower, hug/touch my husband and unable to move without bleeding. My nipples were so bad, each time i moved or took my bra off the whole nipple would rip off (this happened daily) i would cry knowing what was about to happen and the pain that was about to follow. I was unable to do my job (dance teacher) as i was unable to move. Each time i moved my skin would rub against clothes, leaving me having to just say the steps instead of actually dancing them. I used to sit naked on a seat at home trying not to touch anything around me. Since seeing the friendly/helpful Dr Latheef i have my LIFE back. I have had 3 showers (the first 3 in years) i still have to be careful with what i touch and what i do, and using creams etc... however i can now do normal things. Weather that be hug my husband for a few moments before i roll over to sleep. Or actually doing my actual job and being able to dance and move without bleeding and cracking. My nipples have completely healed, no cracking, leaking which means i can take clothes on and off without ripping the whole nipple off. I am sat in clothes typing this with no pain, which feels weird and like a dream. Dr Latheef has been so supportive, understanding and given me faith back in Medicine. I still only shower occasionally, and hug my husband for tiny amounts, and apply creams all the time.. but i have some sort of normality back. And the pain and constant itching has gone! i have seen many dermatologists throughout the years all across the country and not ONE has been able to help me! but DR Latheef has given me life back. THANK YOU. what shall i do first, shower, dance, or hug people?

I saw Dr Latheef in February after suffering from facial swelling, redness and sore eyes. A condition my GP was unable to diagnose. I was loosing my confidence and my mental health was at an all time low. I arranged an appointment to see Dr latheef at the Nuffield Hospital in Leeds. Dr latheef spent alot of time listening to me and answered all my questions. I was put at ease straight away and Dr latheef was confident he could help me. Dr latheef took his time to fully explain each stage of the process. Following the advice of Dr latheef, further appointments were arrange for the following week for patch testing to take place. Dr latheef was then able to do a full diagnosis. A couple of months have now passed and I wanted to share how delighted I am with the results. I feel like my skin has been given a new lease of life! I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being such a smart, humble and compassionate doctor. I am so pleased I came to see you.

After many years/months seeing numerous GP’s and even a private specialist regarding dermatitis on my face I wasn’t getting anywhere. It was such a big relief coming across Dr Latheef. After a course of 3 months treatment (mixture of tablets and cream) within afew days I could see a huge difference. Dr Latheef cleared my face and it’s the best it’s ever looked. Dr Latheef is the best dermatologist, he is kind and understanding and puts you at ease. Right from the word go he reassured me that he could find a solution not only in the short term but also the long term. I would always recommend Dr Latheef to friends and family. He is my go to dermatologist without a doubt and brought my confidence back.

I had begun to notice dark spots and increasing pigmentation on both sides of my face for a few years before I saw Dr Latheef. He diagnosed melasma and after after a short course of treatment, the difference in my skin has been amazing. The melasma has gone and I don’t need to wear make up to cover up any discolouration. Before the treatment with Dr Latheef, I was contemplating invasive and expensive laser treatment which I am happy to say I don’t need anymore. Everyone I know wants to know what I’m using and I’ve recommended Dr Latheef many times. He’s brilliant !

I decided to fly from Dubai to Leeds to see Dr Latheef following a number of recommendations from friends and colleagues in Dubai who had been to see him already. I have been suffering with severe blistering rashes that covered most of my body and affected my business and personal life causing severe stress and anxiety because I could never know when the next flare would happen and destroy my day! Having had no improvement having seen local Dermatologists, prescribing me antibiotics that never really worked I finally decided to make the trip to Leeds to see Dr Latheef. At the consultation he was very understanding of my condition, carried out some tests and confirmed the diagnosis and gave me a very clear treatment plan and within a few weeks my condition started to clear Alhamdullilah . I am planning to fly back for my follow up visit but wanted to write this to say a big thanks to Dr Latheef for giving me a fresh start in life!

Life changing results! Having had persistent body acne and PLE throughout my teens and twenties I have tried any and all remedies I could find over the years without much success. I recently decided to speak with Dr Latheef to see what he could do, and 2 months into the prescribed treatments my once very visible acne and PLE rash has gone. This is the first time in my adult life I do not have any sign of acne, and my only regret is not speaking to Dr Latheef sooner! Exceptionally knowledgeable and personable doctor that I can't recommend enough. Thanks again!

We came to see Dr Latheef as our 11 month old son was suffering severely with eczema on his body and face. We had been to see our GP on numerous occasions but to no avail. He had also stopped eating and sleeping and was in real discomfort. On having a consultation with Dr Latheef he put our concerns to rest and we were prescribed a few different steroid creams with a treatment plan of what to use and when. At first we were a little hesitant about using steroids - particularly on our sons face. However we were assured that as long as we used them correctly there was nothing for us to worry about. We did as Dr Latheef instructed and within 2 days our sons skin had cleared. We kept to the treatment plan to ensure we used the creams in a safe way and now his skin is doing great. He was back to his happy self within a few days and eating and sleeping again! Would highly recommend Dr Latheef.

Dr Latheef was very open and approachable, listened to my concerns and asked questions. My appointment wasn’t rushed and a diagnosis was given. The treatment is working and I’m delighted to be almost back to my old self. I can’t praise him highly enough.

I had suffered with a skin condition on my face for a few years. It would flare up with no specific triggers; my face would become itchy and uncomfortable; it was seriously affecting my self confidence. Dr Latheef quickly diagnosed two different conditions, gave me a schedule of treatment that I followed religously, and within days I was seeing a very positive result. Now, almost a year down the line, my skin issues are history. The schedule of treatment has long finished, and I manage my skin with UV protection. Confidence restored; skin calm; an easily managed long term solution. I highly recommend Dr Latheef. Thank you, Faheem. One very happy patient.

I visited Dr Latheef whilst suffering from severe Alopecia Areata which affected hair all over my body and left me with shattered confidence and a feeling of desperation having been neglected by other health care professionals. Dr Latheef's prescribed treatments have worked perfectly, and i am very much on the road to recovery. However, and arguably more than that, he was kind and compassionate in a very difficult situation and gave me hope and reassurance. He listened and understood when it seemed no other healthcare professional could or would and offered the follow up support and help needed. I cannot recommend Dr Latheef highly enough to anyone who is suffering with similar conditions. Thank you.
