I have suffered from severe acne my whole life. In order to solve that problem, I tried everything: skin care, cosmetological treatments, antibiotics, checking my blood and hormones, dermatologists. Before Dr Bakkour I assumed that I just have to come to terms with it and that I will be stuck with acne forever. However, Dr Bakkour was able to help with my problem. I have encountered many issues on my journey to clear skin, which have always been professionally addressed and taken care of. Dr Bakkour very quickly and precisely identifies the problem and the way to solve it. At the moment I am enjoying my clear skin and cannot be happier. Finding a great dermatologist can prove to be a very difficult task, but I have finally found mine, Thank you, Dr Bakkour!

I have attended Dr Bakkour's clinic on several occasions for advice and treatment for BCC lesions caused by sun exposure on my face. Dr Bakkour has now performed MOHs surgery on my face twice and I am very pleased with the results as the scars healed well. I am glad that I found Dr Bakkour at this time, he is always re-assuring and positive in the follow up sessions and I feel safe with his expertise in this sensitive area. I will certainly recommend him to others.

Dr Bakkour was very professional and his confidence in diagnosing and explaining the condition made me feel confortable and at ease. His skill in surgery (biopsy) was also evident. He has a very gentle and reassuring manner as well.

I was very satisfied - during the consultancy Dr Bakkour informed me about my options with great clarity and his manner is very welcoming, warm and empathetic. During the surgery that followed he put me at ease which helped with my initial anxiety. He is clearly very experienced and can highly recommend him.
