“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.“

Much of her training was at the prestigious national centre of excellence, St John's Institute of Dermatology, where she trained under some of the country's leading dermatologists.

    As a highly experienced dermatologist, Tamara sees both adults and children and has developed several areas of specialist interest including acne, moles (with dermoscopy examination), skin cancer screening, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea and skin rashes alongside all general dermatology.

    Patient seen for:
    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.

    Mole Mapping
    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.

    Very friendly and approachable. Inspired confidence that she knew exactly what was wrong and how it would best be treated. The consultation didn't feel rushed. Dr Basarab was very patient when I got out my list of questions and she answered them all very fully with a big smile.

    Acne
    I would highly recommend Dr Basarab for anyone worried about acne. She has a delightful manner and really cares about the outcomes for her patients. She is incredibly experienced at dealing with young people with acne and really understands the impact it can have on their confidence and well being. She carefully explains her recommended treatments and what to expect. She is accessible and responsive to calls for help and most importantly, gets great results. She builds a great rapport with young people and helps them feel solutions are at hand. A delight to deal with. Thank you.

    I can't recommend Dr Tamara Basarab highly enough. When you realise that you really NEED to see a specialist it's rather daunting, but from the moment I walked into her consulting room I was immediately put at ease with her warm yet professional approach. Both during my consultation & follow up, Tamara's communication was excellent. She went to great lengths to ensure that I was fully informed of my condition and her manner was reassuring throughout. Tamara was able to resolve my problem quickly and efficiently so that I wasn't left to worry for any length of time. If the need arises in the future with myself or my family, I wouldn't hesitate to return to her.
