Welcome To My Site

I am a consultant dermatologist at St John’s Institute of Dermatology, Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals and I have spent the last thirty years specialising in the treatment of hair and scalp disorders. Combining old-fashioned values with effective, innovative treatments, each patient is seen as an individual with a treatment plan tailored to their personal requirements.

With no computer screens or modern technology to distract from the consultation, I provide a calm, serene space in which to guide patients though what can be quite lengthy treatment programmes. The emotional impact of these conditions can not be underestimated and I believe that psychological support and counselling is an important part of the treatment process.

I see women, men and children suffering from hair loss and other scalp, hair and nail disorders as well as treating general dermatology conditions.

You can’t underestimate the psychological impact of hair loss on any person. It can be emotionally devastating

“I just want to say thank you to Dr David Fenton (and his team!) for the exceptional care and kindness shown to my son over the last 18 months. His support also to an anxious mother has been tremendous”

JT, London

“It is always so lovely to see Dr Fenton and I want to thank him for the support, encouragement and kindness he always shows myself and my husband. We really appreciate the time and wise words that he so kindly gave us.”

“I’d like to say thank you to Dr Fenton for being such an amazing doctor for the last 24 years and all his help in treating my alopecia.”

KM, Surrey

“I am so grateful to Dr Fenton’s gentle ministering and I am so glad to say that with his help my hair has totally grown back now. Although not life-threatening, alopecia was disheartening and I was so pleased to be able to come and see Dr Fenton and be treated so successfully. It is amazing the quackery and suggestions that are out there! I am very lucky.”

JD, Kent

“Dr Fenton is professional, kind and approachable. He is happy to deal with any concerns raised by his patients and really seems to care about their welfare. I leave our appointments feeling reassured that my condition is manageable if I follow the advice I have been given. I am therefore more than happy to highly recommend Dr Fenton to anyone seeking advice and guidance on all aspects of hair loss.”
