Patient Testimonials: 

“Dr Rakesh Anand was professional, friendly and reassuring. He saw me on time, was clear and honest about the range of treatment options and I left feeling very much better informed. He had an excellent bedside manner. I very much felt I could trust him and that I was in safe hands. I would highly recommend Dr Anand to others.”

 

“Dr Anand is an incredible dermatologist and an extremely empathetic person. He has cured my adult acne, which I have with on and off suffered for 15-20 years, with a treatment which had never been offered to me before. My self-esteem was very low before seeing Dr Anand and now, having worked together on a treatment plan and a new skincare routine, I feel happy and confident again. I can't recommend Dr Anand enough and I feel exceedingly grateful to have found him.”
