“. I had treatment for a port au wine stain with Dr firas a couple a months ago. I have wanted to this for a long time as my birthmark affected my self confidence a lot . After visiting numerous different clinics I then came across Dr Firas. In my consultation he was was extremely considerate and explained he would treat me. After very few laser sessions I achieved clearance of my port au wine stain something which I thought was not possible .He truly has changed my life . He always wants to help his patients and do what is best for his patients which is what stood about Dr firas from other doctors . Hence why I am writing my story to recommend Dr Firas to any other client as he truly is a genius with lasers! In addition to this Dr Firas made me feel at ease when doing the treatments and I am over the moon with my results ! “
