How to go about seeing a Skin specialist in Singapore?
Looking for a recommended Skin Specialist (dermatologist) in Singapore?
Just so that we are on the same page, a skin specialist is a dermatologist if he holds a professional medical degree with further post-graduate training in skin diseases. We wouldn't call someone working at a spa a skin specialist though. However, if you have a skin related problem and has not been well managed by a general practitioner; you would need to be referred to a skin specialist or a dermatologist.
It's also likely that you would do a Google search first and decide from there. Would you rely on what you just read from the internet to decide?
With tons of low-quality self-help e-books out there on skin disease treatment for acne, eczema, psoriasis etc., we are not surprised if you are confused and overwhelmed with treatment information or rather misinformation i.e. recommendations from Facebook friends, neighbors, emails, forum recommendations, search engine results etc. Before you buy a suspicious skin care product with 'too good to be true claims', do a quick check on Google. Use the product name as the search keywords and also add verification words like scam, hoax etc.
As for the medical specialist selection, the online world provides overwhelming information. While some of the sites do provide the needed information; the method in which the clinics or the specialists are selected are not explained. Have the medical specialists been verified by checking with the Singapore Medical Council?
Other than the basic selection criteria, I would select a specialist based on experience and training as well as feedback from other specialists, doctors or customers.
