Laserase Bolton prides itself in quality of care it offers from its team of professional doctors and nurses to the helpful friendly service of the staff helping book appointments and offering advice. One of our proud achievements is our staff have remained with us since the early days. We want to introduce them.
Dr Kiran Patel
Dr Kiran Patel has been the Medical Director of Laserase Bolton for over 20 years. He is our expert medical practitioner and has overall responsibility for our clinical protocols.
As a full-time NHS GP, Dr Patel has maintained his specialist interest in laser technology and techniques throughout his career, attending many conferences and specialist training courses across the UK and Europe.
For Dr Patel, some of the most rewarding work is the help we can offer to patients with birth marks, in particular young children who can become traumatised by their blemishes.
The joy on their faces when they are removed is incredibly satisfying. Dr Patel speaks Gujarati.
