Dr Phillips was extremely calming and reassuring after I received a fairly serious diagnosis requiring minor surgery and recovery. Despite having since relocated away from London, I'm still a patient at OneWelbeck and visit Dr Phillips for my dermatology check up whenever I visit

I would highly recommend Dr. Phillips. He found the problem straight away and explained everything perfectly. The procedures I had were painless and comfortable. Everything ran like clockwork time wise. Both the nurses assisting him were also great.
