“Diagnosis of skin diseases is an extremely versatile occupation which requires good problem-solving skills. On the other hand, you also engage in hands-on work when performing procedures. What I like most about my work is the variety it offers, and challenging and rare cases. I enjoy being able to treat patients of all ages; the age spectrum is very wide in the case of skin diseases. I get along very well with children and they offer an additional challenge in my work.”
