COVID-19 Statement From Dr Alia

"The global Covid-19 pandemic has challenged each and every one of us. Keeping the concerns of my patients at the forefront of my care, I have decided to continue the option for video consultations. We are in a new world of medicine and remote consulting has proved a great adjunct to my practice. I have also recommenced face-to-face consultations and am delighted to be able to see my patients again in person. Please contact my admin team to book an appointment.” Dr Alia - The Psychodermatologist, September 2020

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.

Extremely happy with my consultation with Dr Alia. Dr Alia recommended affordable yet effective products which have made my skin look the best it has looked in 10 years. Would highly recommend Dr Alia for anyone that is struggling with their skin. I have seen a couple of other dermatologist in the past but they have not really listened to my concerns and my skin never improved.

We had a consultation with Dr Alia for our baby who was suffering from bad eczema. The consultation was brilliant and very helpful. Dr Alia really listened to our concerns as parents and took her time to go through and understand everything. For the first time we actually felt heard and taken seriously as we had an awful time with the GP. We left the clinic feeling far less anxious and actually felt hopeful thay our baby's condition would improve. The treatment that was prescribed has been working great so far and we have actually got a happy baby and our sleep back! What we booked on a whim out of desperation turned out to be the best thing we did for our baby! Would highly recommend Dr Alia, she was very professional, empathetic and understanding.

I had a fantastic experience with Dr. Alia. She is kind, patient and compassionate and I could tell she was truly listening to my concerns. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services to anyone thinking of booking in with her.

My experience with Dr Ahmed was excellent. I am suffering from hair loss issues which just happened more or less overnight. This was a very traumatic and distressful time for me as it is not something I had experienced before. After speaking with Dr Ahmed and being assessed to see what could possibly be causing the problem, I felt much more relaxed and at ease. I didn’t feel rushed during the consultation and found Dr Ahmed to be very understanding and sympathetic to my concerns. A plan was put in place for me and I was advised to have a follow up appointment to see the progress. I would definitely recommend Dr Ahmed’s services to anyone who has similar concerns.

Great experience - it was really helpful to have such a detailed consultation and get advice not just on the creams etc but also the lifestyle options which can help. Would definitely recommend.

Extraordinary doctor and experience! Urticaria was my problem when I was referred to Dr Ahmed. She explained everything single detail that my previous treatments failed to do so and all my concerns were successfully addressed. Only after one dose of her proscription, my symptoms got dramatically improved. Both Dr. Ahmed and her team are very professional and kind. In the email her team sent to me after consultation, it include every single word that was mentioned during our meeting. I can’t feel more grateful for being able to see her, especially in this special situation.

The consultation was worth every penny. Alia went through my medical history, lifestyle and mental health in order to look at my acne from all perspectives. She explained the process and my treatment. I've had consultations before where I was made to pay more money just for a doctor to explain the treatment, but this was all included. I received my treatment plan the next day. This is the most hope I've had after a decade of suffering with acne. Highly recommend!

I am so delighted with the results of my treatment by Dr Alia Ahmed. I can see and feel the difference to my skin. I have suffered from acne through out my life. I actually get compliments about skin now which is reassuring. My son also has seeked medical treatments for his teenage skin problems and was equally happy with the results. Thank You Dr Alia Ahmed!
