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.

After looking around for the best dermatologist in the area I was delighted to find Vindy Ghura. From the first consultation I was impressed by his knowledge, expertise and professionalism. After a biopsy, Vindy Ghura removed a basal-cell carcinoma from the tip of my nose. Initially, I was extremely apprehensive about how my nose would look afterwards but was reassured by the explanation he have me about how he would perform the procedure. After 17 stitches down the middle of my nose, now, after only 10 weeks, there is nothing at all to see. The stitching is remarkable and almost invisible! I do not even need to use makeup as the scar cannot be seen. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone or seeing him again in future should the need arise. I can’t thank him enough. My family are delighted as I am with the results and I am now, thanks to him, cancer free.
