We choose Dr Rai as the hospital was close to home and on the private medical company's panel. Making appointments was easy and the choice of times/venues made things easy for us. All appointments went well and we could ask any question as often as we needed. Things were explained in a way we understood and timescales for recovery clearly covered. Would happily use Dr Rai again should the need arise

Dr Rai is clearly an exceptional Dr in her field, and a rare example of a physician who can be comforting and equally pragmatic. Her clinical care of me was unrivalled, and she undertook a small biopsy which was painless, and the scar will eventually fade to be unnoticeable. The most important aspect of my care was that I was left with no doubt as to her diagnosis and felt assured that I could not have been in better hands.

I was fortunate to be under the care of Dr Rai at two different HCA hospitals. She was extremely professional and her excellent communication skills gave me additional reassurance that I'd understood the procedures planned. She also worked well with the nursing and surgical teams keeping everyone focused whilst creating a dynamic and positive mood which made my surgery less daunting.

I am very pleased with the results of my Mohs surgery this time around as the scar is a lot flatter and the surface is very even. I have had no problems with the scar or with tumour recurrence. I underwent this procedure with Dr Rai after having been operated on at another hospital.

Very quick diagnostic without very much analysis and theory of possible causes with long prescription and quick follow up.

Dr Sweta Rai

Dear Sir/ Madam, It is unfortunate that your experience felt quick. I do endeavour to give a lengthy consult and explain the diagnosis including treatment at length, therefore ensure all patients have a full 20 min of consultation time, in order to be fair to other patients who may also have been waiting and have busy schedules timings of consultations remains a challenging balancing act . Some medical conditions are quick to diagnose and require complex set of skin directed treatment particularly conditions such as eczema and psoriasis which are very common long term skin conditions requiring multiple treatments including soap substitutes, anti- inflammatory skin directed creams and regular emmolients. Often treatments are different for facial skin in comparison to the skin on our bodies and further different from hands, feet and other areas therefore requiring different creams. If one's skin condition is bad enough to warrant them to come and see and skin specialist acute treatment followed by short term follow up is also necessary for your safety and is intended as a conscientious effort coupled with a caring attitude which I pride myself in; This is with the sole intention of being focussed on achieving and maintaining the highest standards of patient care.

Dr. Rai changed my life for the better. Dr. Rai preformed liposuction on my abdomen, a problem area I was struggling with for quite some time. From the beginning, Dr. Rai exhibited the highest level of patient care to me, having my safety and satisfaction in mind. She carefully considered what needed to be done in the safest and most effective way. She explained the procedure in detail and reviewed with me every aspect of liposuction before the procedure was preformed, which made me well informed and comfortable the day of surgery. At every point during the process, Dr. Rai had my best interest in mind, giving me optimal bedside manner. Before the procedure she was at my side making sure I was okay and after the procedure she ensured that I was in the best condition to go home. During my healing process, she checked in frequently to see how I was doing and it halped me immensely. The results were even better than I had expected. The liposuction procedure in conjunction with diet and exercise gave me a tight and defined abdomen. Dr. Rai is one of the most skilled professionals that I have ever had the pleasure of being under the care of. Before my procedure I had several consultations with different doctors and nobody came close the expertise of Dr. Rai. Using Dr. Rai is decision that I truly stand behind. I highly recommend anybody who is struggling to lose stubborn fat to strongly consider using Dr. Rai for this procedure that gave me the lasting results I wanted and needed. Professional, well- priced and comprehensive follow up all set Dr. Rai above the rest.
