“Dr Ali was extremely friendly and understanding from the off, he let me explain how I felt about my skin and how it had been affecting me day to day. He gave me good options for my treatment and explained them all really well so I knew what to expect. I felt really comfortable throughout my appointments. I would definitely recommend Dr Ali 100%.“
