Dr Y Mirza took excellent care of me as a patient. He listened to my concerns and took the approach to my skin regime very seriously. I am happy to say I have received tremendously amazing results and couldn't be happier. I am so glad I was cared for by Dr Mirza and will definitely continue to see him for anything in the future. I give him my highest recommendation.

Dr Yasir Mirza is a knowlegable and excellent dermatology specialist who I would highly recommend to others. I had been suffering with an ongoing skin condition for the past year and had seen various other specialists who had not been able to relieve my condition or offer any treatment that worked. During my appointment Dr Mirza clearly identified and explained my condition in detail. He offered alternative treatment options that would resolve my issue and offered general advice on how to take care of my skin which was also very helpful. I noticed immediate results following his advice and my skin problems are now completely resolved thanks to him.

I was originally referred to Dr Mirza due to a severe keloid scarring at the back of my neck. This scar was causing discomfort - pain, itching and was also causing stress due to the embarrassment of this. After 4 appointments - 1st appointment- assessment, consultation and Information sharing 2nd & 3rd appointment - assessment and steroid injections 4th - check up and discharge My scarring has improved which has alleviated the discomfort. I found Dr Mirza to be knowledgeable, empathetic and thorough.

Gave a thorough examination and then offered a biopsy of the growth to confirm his initial diagnosis. As the doctor said he was 99.99% certain that there was nothing to worry about - and that I should take action only if the growth changed size or condition, then I decided not to proceed.

Over all my experience was very helpful. My results are amazing and I cant thank my doctor enough. It is soul destroying at first when you see your skin destroying itself but the finishing result is worth 6 very long months! Doctor Mirza helped me through and gave me the confidence I needed to proceed with my treatment and I would recommend a thousand times over for anyone who needs this treatment! Thank you doctor it has been torture and a pleasure all in one but I freely show my skin without hating it! Thank you thank you thank you.

I was so impressed with the Dr’s Knowledge. I feared he wouldn’t know as none of the doctors I have seen so far did but straight away he knew what it was. He was able to tell me what to do to help it and even gave me a website to look into my condition further.

Honest assessment with positive results. Only hiccup is that the Surgery is usually running at least 30 mins behind schedule.
