“At my recent consultation Dr Varghese immediately put me at my ease and explained about my skin condition. He outlined two options of treatment in great detail and assisted me with my decision. The treatment was a total success and I would go back to him without hesitation. He was extremely professional coupled with a very personable and reassuring manner. I recall him treating my very elderly mother in 2015 and again he got the balance absolutely right, highly professional and yet reassuring at the same time. I cannot recommend him highly enough.“

    I would like to thank you for the past late work you did on my nose. No pain afterwards, hardly a mark of scar 8 days later. Also for being very kind to a coward such as we & for your follow up letter. I will always come to you with any further problems & recommend you to all my friends. Thank you

    Dr Varghese removed a squamous cell carcinoma from the back of my hand last Thursday and this is just a short note to thank him. The fact that he was able to perform this procedure so promptly after the consultation was also appreciated. Please convey my gratitude.

    I am writing to you to thank you very much for all that you have done for me so far. As you are very much aware I am a rather nervous patient! I am very pleased with the way that you have looked after me, and the results are starting to look very good. You have been very patient and caring. I would also like to mention Shaker, he has also been brilliant in taking care of me, and I appreciate his 'bedside' manner. Deborah, your secretary has also been very helpful at all stages of this matter, making appointments and answering any questions that I have. A very good team.
