"Professor Azzopardi is a no-nonsense doctor who is friendly, plain speaking and really knows what he is talking about. I have felt safe in his hands over the past several years"

"I can honestly say that I have never received such kind and professional treatment with any doctor before. Not only is his treatment of my scars impeccable (they are getting so much better), his attention to detail is incredible. Kind, gentle, thoughtful but a firm hand. I wish everyone had a chance to experience Professor Azzopardi in their life"
