“We brought our baby to Laura's clinic for assessment and treatment of her eczema. We got an extremely thorough care plan, which has been successful in bringing her eczema under control. Laura is so professional, knowledgeable and has the best communication skills I've seen in a GP. I would highly recommend.”
“Dr Laura was very thorough during the skin consultation. It was fantastic to have the knowledge of a GP with a passion for skincare. I am excited to see the results from her recommendations and looking forward to booking in for a treatment!”
“I had a super experience with Dr Laura. I’ve always been interested in skincare but found it confusing to simplify a routine. Dr Laura took a practical and logical approach to give me a simple but really effective routine. I think everyone would benefit from this. Most interestingly, the appointment was not just about what to introduce but stripping back my routine and cutting some things out. A great experience from start to finish.”
