    I have been a patient of Dr Menage's for "I can't remember" number of years, many though. She knows my skin better than I do. I trust her implicitly and I am very grateful for her patient, honest and caring manner. Having grown up in South Africa with a great love for the outdoors and the sun, I am now (at 70 years) suffering from my past. Dr Menage has been a huge support for me in dealing with all the nasties that keep appearing on me!

    Dr du Menage makes it very comfortable for me to come do a complete body scan annually — I am fair skinned and have had a number of bad sunburns so try and be vigilant. She also is great at thinking about me as a whole person not just focusing on my skin — I have more wide-ranging discussions about things in my life with her than I have with my GP! I also appreciate that she keeps her appointments to schedule. She is good at explaining things, too — very helpful with my experience last year with lichen plants.
