    Dr Faisal Ali gave me a fantastic consultation. He has a very welcoming manner. He listened to me carefully as I explained the issues and then examined my skin before discussing his diagnosis and options for treatment. I am already seeing results with his treatment and highly recommend him to anyone with skin concerns.

    Ideal first consultation - thorough, well explained whole-body examination followed by some immediate treatment, a planned course of action and lots of advice. All dispensed with a pleasant demeanor with just the right balance of "put you at ease" and scientific/medical speak.
