    Dr Bashir is an excellent dermatologist and dermatological surgeon. He has a broad range of experience in all areas of dermatology, and is one of the few dermatologists who is fully trained in Mohs surgery. He is a skin cancer specialist (skin cancer lead at Kings College Hospital) and also has vast experience in cosmetic dermatology and lasers for all indications. Highly recommended!
