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.

B Foster

I have suffered from acne throughout my life. I actually get compliments about my skin now, which is reassuring.

R Butt

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.

Dr Alia was invited on to Frank Mitchell's U105 show, to talk about the link between mind and skin including the effect of skin conditions on mental health, the impact of the global pandemic, and treating common problems like acne and eczema

Dr Alia was warm, friendly and very professional. She put all my worries to ease and was so lovely. Would definitely recommend Dr Alia for any skin related treatment and would return to her practice if needed.

Great service and support by Dr Ahmed and the team. Knew that my GP could no longer help me with identifying what my skin condition was. Dr Ahmed was friendly, professional and a specialist in her field. When researching dermatologists in my local area, Dr Ahmed's website was the only one that clearly stated they can help with medical skin problems rather than just the usual cosmetic services, which is exactly what I needed. Thanks again and will definitely return in the future if ever needed.

If you have any skin issues then we highly recommend Dr. Alia. She is very warm, understanding and knowledgeable and we’re so grateful for a way forward with our skin issues! We both saw Dr. Alia for different skin issues. Megan never had had skin issues until last November when she suddenly got severe acne. Whitney has had rosacea her whole life but it’s been worse over the last year, looking similar to a lupus rash. We finally got some answers from our consultation with Dr. Alia. What’s unique about Dr. Alia is that she is a psychodermatologist, so she looks at the mind and it’s effect on the skin. Dr. Alia inspected both of our skins, using a dermoscopy and gave us her opinion as to what is causing our issues, and has put us both on a great treatment plan.

From first contact to initial diagnosis it was a matter of days. Dr Alia was very reassuring and even took the time to call me with the results to allay my concerns. Very professional service, thank you.

I booked an online consultation with Dr Alia for my son to discuss his facial acne & eczema, after first going through the details with her over the telephone. Dr Alia was professional, patient & helpful. My son felt at ease & is very pleased with the results. Dr Alia prescribed a course of treatment for my son, as well as advice about other products he could use. Throughout the course of treatment, Dr Alia & her team have kept in contact to check on my son's progress & that has been greatly appreciated. I would happily recommended Dr Alia & always mention her services to anyone I know with similar issues.
