“Dr Basarab was so brilliant with my five year old daughter, explaining everything to her as well as to me, in a manner that included her appropriately. This immediately put her at ease and made all the appointments easier and my daughter was excited for the next time she saw Dr Basarab! The treatment itself was comprehensive, adjusted as necessary and resolved a long standing issue. “

    It was my second visit to Dr Basarab and once again I cannot rate her highly enough. Her response to my initial inquiry was extremely prompt and in the session itself her thoroughness, expertise and bedside manner was all of the highest level. Her follow in making sure that I had the most appropriate next level of medical care was also exemplary. I also found it very comforting that if I had any subsequent questions regarding my condition she gave me great confidence that she would be available to answer those.

    Skin Rash
    As parents of a small toddler we were very worried when a small skin rash became a major rash quite quickly causing pain and irritation to our daughter. We couldn't find out what the issue was through our GP and didn't want to bring our child into a hospital setting unnecessarily. Dr Bararab provided an in depth virtual consultation and advice to follow, we collected a prescription and within hours our child's discomfort was eased and the rash began to heal.

    I saw Dr Basarab three times for mole mapping. She was very accurate and discreet each time. After the removal of some of my moles she called me to describe my condition and to talk about the possible risks that I should avoid. I am very content with the treatment I received from. Dr Basarab and will return for future checkups.
