Dr Ghura performed Mohs surgery on my nose to remove Basel cell carcinoma and I was left with a very neat scar. Since then I have also received Cryosurgery on my cheek. Both procedures were fully explained to me and at each appointment Dr Ghura gave me the opportunity to ask any questions or raise any concerns. At my last appointment Gr Ghura examined my face and neck to see if I had any further problems which I found very reassuring. Dr Ghura has a very pleasant open manner and I feel very fortunate to have found such an expert in his profession. I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends.

I had a dry ice treatment to treat sun damaged cells just below my eyebrow. The procedure was quick and simply felt very cold. It was not painful. Dr Ghura explained that the skin would scab following the treatment. However the slight wound quickly healed up. I then went back for a follow up appointment and was discharged. Dr Ghura was very helpful and made me feel at ease.

I first visited Dr Ghura in 2016 after being referred to him for a non malignant mole removal. Whilst in the consultation he spotted a more serious problem on my lip, which turned out to be a Basal Cell Carcinoma. Dr Ghura completely removed the cancer using MOHS surgery, he suggested another really good cosmetic surgeon who rebuilt my lip. I have, unfortunately, had to revisit him on two other occasions to remove further BCC's, from my back. He guided me through the processes with a very caring and understanding professionalism. I now understand fully how to look for any possible problems or abnormalities and would contact Dr Ghura immediately, knowing that he would be able to look after me again.

I underwent 5 facial surgical procedures with Dr Ghura. His surgical skills are remarkable with no visible scars. He carried out these procedures under the heading of MOHS surgery which meant that each condition was dealt with at each visit with no waiting weeks for results. Dr Ghura is thorough in his care and extremely personable. He always explained each procedure clearly. After care from Dr Ghura was carefully and efficiently planned and ensured that there was always an avenue of contact in case I was worried about any of the surgery. It is without reservation that I would recommend Dr Ghura for any Dermatological conditions.
