Rosita Asadi

After graduating with a first class honours degree in Podiatry from the University of Brighton, Rosita started working within both private sector and the NHS to acquire further experience before establishing AFC with Ali. Prior to that Rosita, who also holds a PhD in chemistry, worked as a scientist and researcher for several years. However, she was always interested in medicine related subjects and possibility of improving people’s health and quality of life. She finds nothing more rewarding than being able to help a patient with severe pain to walk out of the clinic pain-free. To provide such a service she is keen on developing her knowledge and skills by taking part in various trainings on regular basis.

Ali also graduated with an honours degree in Podiatry from Brighton University. Immediately after that he started working with a number of private practices and served patients with various foot conditions. His previous medical degree and exposure to patient concerns and hospital environments as a medical student equipped him with an extensive knowledge of wider health issues and interpersonal skills required to put patients at ease and provide them with excellent service.
