As a fully GMC certified, UK trained Consultant Dermatologist, I am pleased to provide medical and surgical dermatology services for children and adults with skin, hair and nail conditions. Being dual trained in dermatology and psychology I have a special interest in Psychodermatology and also consult in this exciting new field.
Medical dermatology services encompass diagnosis and management of a vast number of dermatological conditions, including skin, genital, hair and nail problems.
I regularly see babies and children in my practice and have worked in combined clinics with allergists and general paediatricians.
As a dermatologist with a specialist interest in psychodermatology (a ‘psychodermatologist’) I treat the mind and skin together.
Skin cancer is the most common cancer worldwide. I specialise in diagnosing and treating skin cancer and pre-cancerous skin lesions.
Supporting your skin with appropriate skin care helps to maintain and enhance its natural properties as well as protecting from damage.
I am trained in performing minor skin surgery for the purposes of diagnosis and management of skin lesions (including skin cancer) and other skin problems in children and adults.
Our Clients' Reviews
Dr Alia treated me over a course of 6 months with great results. She made me realise that stress was making my skin condition worse; something I did not realise.
I have suffered from acne throughout my life. I actually get compliments about my skin now, which is reassuring.
She has been especially helpful tweaking my skincare when needed, like when I’m stressed or run down. In my pregnancy she created a personal plan to suit my needs.
