I contacted Dr Daniel Glass to treat a skin condition, after he was recommended to me by a relative.Dr Glass put me on a course of medication which was successful in treating this condition. I have now been happily discharged :)Throughout my treatment, I found Dr Glass to be extremely conscientious, caring and thorough. He fully explained all the available treatment options to me and possible side effects. I felt I was properly informed.He also explained to me that skin is very unpredictable and if I have a predisposition to skin allergies, then flare-ups could recur in the future. If this happens, I would have no hesitation in consulting with Dr Glass again, if need be. I would also have no hesitation in recommending him to others.

Daniel Glass has been my specialist skin consultant since I was first diagnosed in 2015.His knowledge, expertise and attention to detail, is not only reassuring but enables you to build trust and confidence going forward in whatever treatment path is required.I have recommend him to familyand friends for diagnosis and treatment, as I believe Daniel is the leading consultant in his field for Northwest London.

I have seen Dr Glass on two occasions, 2017 and 2022, for both different treatments. He is easily accessible and booking an appointment to see him was very efficient.When I saw Dr Glass in 2017, he diagnosed and treated my skin issue very swiftly. Within weeks I was looking well but mentally that boosted my confidence too.I needed to see him again and I was not going anywhere else, as he was the right person to treat my skin condition again. Dr Glass once again diagnosed and treated my skin condition on a different issue very quickly and within 6-7 weeks, my skin feels new.Thank you once again Dr Glass; I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone seeking your services as I know they will be in the best care.

Excellent care and attention to detail from Dr Glass. It very much felt like a collaborative approach to tackle the dermatological issues. Dr Glass has been very careful and gave us lots of information and reassurance which left us with the confidence to begin treatment and continue with it. Regular appointments throughout the treatment were easy to set up and the clinic did its best to find convenient moments for us - both in person and online. The results have been excellent and we have appreciated Dr Glass' straightforward, thoughtful and caring approach!
