Q: Why did you choose to pursue dermatology?

What our experts say:

I love that I can cosmetically enhance the appearance of the skin while also being able to perform life-changing medical procedures, such as removal of skin cancers and varicose veins.

I think dermatology is the best specialty in medicine by far. Dermatology is fun. I can help a wide variety of people from all different age groups with their medical, surgical and cosmetic needs, which keeps it exciting.

Even though I found all aspects of medicine interesting, I was most fascinated by the largest organ of the body: the skin. The cosmetic aspect of dermatology has also always been extremely fulfilling, as my passion is to bring out the beauty in each individual.
