“Dermatology is a pleasure and a passion for me. I enjoy meeting new patients and believe in building long-term professional relationships with them. I think the key is to really listen to your patient’s concerns, then talk them through the options most suited to address their issues. No two patients are exactly the same, and my job is to tailor a bespoke plan to help each individual look and feel their best.”
