Bear in mind that the dermatologist's high ranking on page 1 and visible advertisements on Google may not be truly reflective of the doctor's skills, experience and also how 'trust-worthy' is the doctor. The skin specialist clinic's ranking and visibility depends on their Google Adwords advertising, Google's search engine algorithms and also can be manipulated by some SEO (search engine optimization) professionals and tools.
In summary, you need to rely on your own online research as well. Feedback from other doctors and patients needs to be incorporated. Its also important to take into consideration ‘where’ the actual visit is, as the management of the hospital or the clinic plays an important role to provide crucial support to the practicing physician.
How to find the best dermatologist in KL (Kuala Lumpur), Malaysia?

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.
Skin diseases are complex with various root causes and it's also different from one person to another. The performance of a particular medical professional does vary from patient to patient as well as from time to time. 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, you're likely to start by seeing your family or primary care doctor. But in some cases when you call to set up an appointment, you may be referred to a skin specialist (dermatologist). If the skin problem is mild and simple, your general practitioner or primary care doctor (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.
