"I wanted to say a huge thank you. I had an appointment with you on the 9th of March for eczema on my hands and body and for urticaria. The treatments you prescribed have worked fantastically and I couldn’t be happier. I have ‘normal’ skin again! My quality of life has improved massively – I didn’t think it was possible – having not ever really had my eczema under control since I was about 4. So thank you, thank you, thank you!"

"I have known Dr Goldsmith for over 10 years, in which time she has treated me and also my family. I have had multiple procedures (both surgical and 'freezing') done. I have always found Dr Goldsmith to be super professional, in-depth and caring. She always clearly explains the options and provides simple to understand choices about potential treatment (mainly for my basil-cell carcinomas). She is very human in her approach, which I highly value (ie she does not make you feel like a 'number', and takes a real interest in you as a person). "
