Dr Grabczynska is a general dermatologist diagnosing and treating all types of skin complaints including eczema, psoriasis, acne, pigmentary changes, blistering and inflammatory rashes, photosensitivity, skin cancer and skin surgery.

Dr Grabczynska regularly lectures at academic courses for other doctors and continues to participate actively in research, having in the past engaged in research on new treatments for vitiligo, basal cell carcinoma, psoriasis and childhood eczema. She has over 20 peer reviewed articles.
The philosophy of her practice is to offer patients modern and up-to-date treatment of their skin problems but with a friendly and personal approach to their care. Many dermatology problems require a fine balance of medical treatments and supportive measures. All aspects of the patient’s health and wellbeing are taken into account in deciding the best management for each individual. Every patient should have management tailored specifically to their requirements ensuring both the best clinical experience and patient satisfaction.
