During my clinical practice, I have experienced the distress and anguish that acne can cause patients and have seen the impact it can have on daily life. Unfortunately, acne can often be undertreated and the burden of this condition can be underappreciated by many, including medical professionals.
As a dermatologist, I am well placed to treat patients with acne in a holistic way. I aim to provide personalised care, tailoring treatment plans to the individual needs of patients. By effectively treating their acne, I want to help patients regain confidence and relieve them from the constant worry and burden caused by their skin.
