Currently, I am not aware of any skin specialist or a dermatologist who can claim that he or she is the ‘best' skin specialist in town. There is no established clinical performance metrics to measure the competence of a particular skin specialist at the moment in Malaysia. Even if there is such a performance measurement system; the performance of a particular medical professional does vary from patient to patient as well as from time to time. Further, skin diseases are complex with various root causes and it's also different from one person to another. Therefore, the need for an already qualified medical doctor to take up further training and specialize in the field of skin-care management to become a dermatologist.
If you have a skin related problem and you are looking for the right doctor to consult, then please read on. I would suggest that you visit a nearby general practitioner (GP - private) or a medical officer (government) first before you see a skin specialist or a dermatologist. If the skin problem is mild and simple, your general practitioner (in a GP clinic) would be able to manage it. If the condition gets worse, then you may wish to request your GP to refer you to one of the skin specialist clinics in Kuala Lumpur.

Many skin specialists in the private sector can be quite expensive unless you are in the upper income group. You could always try to get a referral to the public or government skin specialists. They may not allow you to make appointment directly without a referral from either a general practitioner or a medical officer from the primary care department. Please make your call and enquire appropriately.
We have compiled a list of skin specialists who are registered with the National Specialist Register of Malaysia, categorized by major cities or states. Also you may wish to click for Reviews on Skin Specialists in Malaysia.
