Yes, Dr Bashir is OK. My daughter had excema when we went to see him.
However, there's one dermatologist in SS15 name's Dr Ranjit. Very popular especially among the ladies in my office. Reasons: 1) To have a more beautiful skin - coz he caters for all the needs there are out there in the market... (acne scar, body lightening, collagen, pigmentation, anti ageing... etc etc..)
2) Treatments for burnt/scar etc. I have a friend who was burnt (her face, hair and both arms) when her kitchen gas leaked. She went to Sunway Hospital for treatment and the Dr there told her that she'd not recover. She later sought treatment at Ranjit's and now her skin is getting better each day. Now, one wouldn't know that she was once a burn victim.
His clinic is somewhere in SS 15/4D. Same row as Maybank and Public Bank if I'm not mistaken.
There is no skin specialist in UJS,but some G.P.'s who claim to be specialist.If you need to find a specialist in skin please look up Malaysian national specialist register,Academy of Medicine Malaysia or Persatuan dermatology Malaysia web site.We as consumers should not be cheated by normal doctors calling themselves specialist.
You can also try Dr. LP Tan (lady skin specialist) at Taman Tun (same row as Pizza Hut, a few doors away from Angel Cake House) close to the old IBM Tower. Her clinic tel: 03-7728 1733. Pls make appointment first before going to avoid long wait.
I used to have hive problem and she cured it. In fact she also cured my friend's acne problems. She had serious acne after returning from further study in overseas due to the change of weather condition. It was very bad but after LP Tan's consultation and medication (oral & cream) plus follow-ups, her skin improved tremendously! The is no trace of acne scar on her!
That's why I always suggest to people with serious acne problem to see a skin specialist for cure rather than buying over-the-counter skincare to solve this problem. Because a doctor can also prescribe oral medication to help cure problems like hormone imbalance which may be another reason for acne, which over-the-counter skincare cannot do.
Dr lim is not a skin specialist, just a normal G.P.
I want to clarify the position of our consulting doctor. Dr Lim is a "cosmetic physician" and she has been doing cosmetic related treatment/ procedures since 1998, full time since 2000 (some dermatological , some endocrinological (weight loss) and some including breast enhancement! (Brava).
Her qualifications are as follows:
1. MBBS (Uni of Melb, Aust)
2. Dip Prac Derm (Uni of Wales, UK)
3. Dip Cosmetic Science (Society of Cosmetic Scientists, UK) - This is not a "medical degree" - it is the basic degree that cosmetic chemists (the guys who formulate all the cosmetics in the market place) have to gain entry into the workforce of cosmetic R&D labs.
Australia has a society of cosmetic physicians and a society of cosmetic surgeons. France has a course in cosmetic dermatology, just to name one. "Cosmetic medicine" doesn't have a "royal" recognition but it certainly doesn't stop a lot of doctors (not just dermatologists and plastic surgeons, gynecologists, opthalmologists, cardiologists, psychiatrists too!) and beauticians from practising "cosmetic medicine" simply because it is lucrative and in high demand.
In her own words, she said "The lines between cosmetology and medicine are blurred these days and I don't think anyone should have disdain for the highly trained aesthetician who performs low concentration chemical peels or microdermabrasion AS LONG AS THEY ARE PROPERLY TRAINED. They are doing so in US.
Nor should anyone have disdain for any doctor with an entrepreneurial spirit who chooses to practise cosmetic medicine (which involves handling lasers, Botox, etc, etc) AS LONG AS THEY ARE PROPERLY TRAINED.
Where did I get training for such procedures? Just like all other doctors, I attended courses and conferences, both local and overseas"
I took my teenage daughter to Dr Ranjit for her acne problems. She was prescribed with antibiotics. She took them for several (6-7) months but saw very little changes, if not none at all.
I stopped taking her there after reading an article about the side effects of taking antibiotics over prolonged period. Later I took her to the beauty salon -also for another 6-8 months, with little changes. Thereafter I told her to apply honey. It's much better now
In January my 85-yr old dad had very bad skin problems. Took him to a dermatologist at Darul Ehsan Medical Center in Shah Alam (Sect 9). Her name is Dr Noraziah. She is also a physician (MRCP). Her charges are reasonable RM50. Only lab fees are a little pricey (but I think still cheaper than SJMC). After 1 week consuming & applying the prescribed medicine, he recovered completely. The darkened and stiffened skin became normal and the itchiness was gone
