“I'd like to say a big thank you Dr Vindy Ghura for the treatment I have received for my Basel Cell Carcimona. I was obviously very scared when I was first diagnosed with BCC, but the way Dr Ghura explained everything put me at ease straight away. I had three BCCs in different places and each one was treated differently to ensure the most effective treatment for them. I am so pleased with the results of the Mohs surgery he performed on the side of my face and am amazed at how minimal the scarring is. It's hardly noticeable now which is such a relief. I had never heard of Mohs surgery before and would definitely recommend it to everyone! My consultations were at the Alexandra Hospital and the procedure was conducted at The Everything Skin Clinic in Cheadle (only a few mins from The Alex). The two nurses on the day were so friendly and just like Dr Ghura, they genuinely cared about providing the best treatment possible (the tea and biscuits were greatly appreciated too!) Unfortunately I didn't have private medical insurance but the money I spent was well worth it. A great consultant providing exceptional treatment. Thank you. “

    I recently saw Dr Ghura about a skin lesion on my jaw line. He quickly put my mind at ease that it was nothing to worry about and was confident it was a Seborrheic Keratosis. I decided to have the lesion removed as it was catching and bleeding. Dr Ghura explained what the procedure involved and it was quick and painless. Throughout the procedure he explained was he was doing which helped to alleviate my nerves and worries. At my follow up appointment, two weeks after the procedure, Dr Ghura was patient; quickly confirming that the histology results confirmed that the lesion was as suspected. I was also worried about scarring but I have only a tiny mark where the lesion was removed which is barely visible. I would have no hesitation in recommending Dr Ghura.

    After months of getting no where with my own doctor, Dr Ghura was recommended to me. I was very reassured with Dr Ghura's frienly but professional approach. On my first visit he diagnosed my problem, immediately putting my mind at rest. After a brief wait in the waiting room he treated the problem there and then. I was so impressed and very relieved. I have now had my final appointment. Dr Ghura he has given advice on what to look out for and what future precautionary measures l should take. I would not hesitate to recomend him.

    I have referred patients to them

    "Dr Ghura is a much valued colleague which I have known for about ten years both in NHS and in the private sector. He is a very experienced dermatological surgeon and I have referred many patients (NHS and private) to him for Mohs surgery. In all my years of knowing him, I have never had negative feedback about his surgical skills and his professionalism. He is well regarded as one of the leading Mohs surgeon in our area. Mohs surgery is a very specialised skill and there is only a relatively small handful of Dermatologists who are trained in this area. He excels in this. I would gladly entrust my patients to his care; indeed I had previously had a benign lesion removed by him so I can definitely endorse his surgical and communication skills."
