I was recommend to use Dr Ghura by my GP. He removed two basal cell carcinomas from my nose by Mohs' surgery. Dr Ghura fully explained the procedure and outcomes beforehand so I knew exactly what to expect. His consideration for the cosmetic result was exceptional and the after care could not have been better.

Dr Ghura explained the procedure that he would carry out in great detail. During the procedure he constantly asked if I was ok, continually reassuring me. He made sure to notify my other consultant and my GP to update them about my treatment. I have been very pleased with the results.

Excellent service: Dr. Ghura assessed then performed MOHS surgery on a basal cell carcinoma on my face. The treatment took place at Salford Royal Hospital, and follow up appointments were at the Alexandra Hospital in Cheadle. From the beginning to the end of my care, Dr. Ghura was informative, courteous and kind. Appointments were always on time, and conducted in a totally professional manner. The surgery was skilled and successful, with no need for reconstruction. I would not hesitate to recommend his service, or to return for any further help in the future should it be necessary.

I first went to see Dr Ghura to talk about having a Basal Cell Carcinoma removed from my nose by MOHS surgery. Dr Ghura had been recommended by my previous Consultant for this area of specialism. The news delivered in that first meeting was a little difficult to hear because the diagnosis hadn't been previously fully explained to me. Dr Ghura was very factual but also extremely kind and did his upmost to reassure me without taking away the reality of the situation. Also due to my nervous disposition, he went all out to fit me in to his busy schedule so that I didn't have long to wait for my surgery. He also recommended an extremely good Plastic Surgeon for my reconstruction surgery and helped facilitate the timings. During the actual surgery Dr Ghura made me feel as relaxed as any one could in those circumstances and it proved to be a success. All my follow up appointments have been thorough and unrushed and I have felt able to talk to Dr Ghura and ask questions without feeling intimidated. I have since recommended Dr Ghura to my sister and she has also had a positive experience and come away extremely pleased. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Ghura for his knowledge, expertise and manner and warmth.

Dr Ghura treated me for skin cancer (basal cell carcinoma) of the scalp and he successfully removed the tumour by performing Mohs surgery in September 2016. Dr Ghura is currently treating me for scarring alopecia to prevent the hair loss from spreading. Throughout, Dr Ghura has been very professional, caring and sympathetic and he has answered all my questions in an honest and frank manner. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Ghura.
