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.

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.

I accompanied my father for a consultation with Dr. Ahmed and both he and I commend that her assiduity throughout the appointment was exemplary. The treatment plan is already proving to be effective, which has a positive effect on my father's general attitude.

Dr Alia was very reassuring, professional and I was so pleased with the overall experience. She confirmed my diagnosis for me after 4 years of uncertainty, I was immediately at ease and relieved. She also recommended several products I could try which have all been great. I would highly recommend a consultation and have since recommended her to my friends and family.

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.
