Dr Perera was incredible. She just got me and completely understood my concerns. I felt completely comfortable with her and was assured by her experience that I was in safe hands. I only wish I had more time with her!

Dr Perera was extremely approachable and understanding about the skin condition affecting my face. I had prepared question prompts in advance of the consultation so she did not need to invite questions. The only suggestion for improvement I would have is that, for those people who don't pre-prepare questions, a list of necessary skincare options might be given, even in email format for the patient to digest later (ingredients to avoid in makeup, approved brands to try, whether to use make up brushes etc.). This information would compliment the dermatology consultation and a skin-condition-specific skincare regime would work in tandem with prescribed medication. I would definitely return to The Medical Chambers, specifically to Dr Perera, for a follow-up consultation.
