Dr Tapan Patel

Having previously set up VIVA Clinic in North London, Dr Tapan embarked on a new venture, starting up PHI Clinic on London’s renowned Harley Street, back in January 2014.

By offering the widest selection of treatments at PHI Clinic, Dr Tapan wishes to treat a broader spectrum of skin conditions than ever before. Rather than only having one laser/device/treatment available, he has sought technologies from across the world that are safe, effective and target different aspects of the same condition. That means for any one condition, he can offer his patients multiple solutions, depending on their preference, desired result and medical history.
