Reviews on Skin Specialists (Dermatologists) in Malaysia 2020 / 2021

If you are looking for reviews on skin specialists (dermatologist) in Malaysia, this article was written with you in mind. Although dermatologist reviews are everywhere on the internet, we have tried to filter out those junks, 'salesy' and 'spammy' and one-liner reviews out there. We have tried to compile those reviews that we think are of quality and unbiased so that it's easy for you to come to an informed decision.

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, but if you have a skin related problem and has not been well managed by a general practitioner, you may wish to be referred to a skin specialist or dermatologist.

Many skin specialists in the private sector can be quite expensive unless you are in the upper income group of course. 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.

We have compiled a list of skin specialists who are registered with the National Specialist Register of Malaysia, categorised by major cities or states. Please feel free to choose the right skin specialist or dermatologist at right location:

Skin Specialists in Petaling Jaya
Skin Specialists in Subang Jaya
Skin Specialists in Selangor
Skin Specialists in Penang
Skin Specialists in Klang
Skin Specialist in Puchong

  • Dec 2014 - Hi, I’m suffering from serious folliculitis infection. It started from my leg and spread to my upper body and now my whole body is affected. The scars/pigmentation is too terrible and since then my confidence level has reduced a lot. I have been taking some medication from a skin specialist in Jalan Ipoh. She prescribes me acnotin. It did help to reduce the infection i.e the size and frequency of acne appearance. She told me I have to take it for 6 months only. Nevertheless, it continues until 15 months. The medicine is very expensive. I did not see the complete cure thus decided to stop the medication. It’s almost five years since I first infected by folliculitis and I still couldn’t find a complete cure... Click the following link and scroll/slide all the way down to read more >

Aug 2011 - have u tried christina? from taipan usj one? … Hi, no i haven't but i have read up on her also. Sounds like a good doc. Im staying in Ampang/ cheras area, so it's kinda far for me to go. But if in the end i have no options, i will go and try her...

Jul 2011 - i tried retin-a last year after some cosmetics problem; the problem went fr worse to worst; then i read that to benefit from retin-a, we have to withstand this period,… but after one month, i can't take it anymore …- it gave me ALOT of scars (those dark marks, which i am trying hard to get rid), stopped retin-a completely, and it then slowly improved.....

Jun 2011 - i personally went to jalan tengku abdul rahman there, near bus stop, there is a specialist clinic DR NOH..really nice DR..i'm a pharmacy student so i know what type of medicine he supplied to me, it works for me, no more severe pimples, just maybe 1 pimple / month LOL sometime no at all just like now...

Nov 2010 - You can try Dr. Koh Skin Specialist - Damansara Utama Uptown (behind RHB). Reasonably priced and, in my experience, effective in resolving eczema and acne...

Dr Ko Skin Specialist Puchong Reviews

Posted 25th April 2018 on
It's been almost a month since I went to Ko's hospital in front of IOI Puchong. Doctors are given 2 types of medicine. Both forms of pills. One is white and one is purple. Small shape. Taxable take twice a day. One during the day and one before bed. Now ni I still eat medicine. The medicine is still there. If you have run out of new medication plan to hospital again later. The services of doctors and nurses also have no problems. They are kind and kind. About my time does not wait long. As I recall there were only two people when I went to the hospital. So it's not long to wait. - Original in Indonesian, translated by Google

You get two treatment sessions. There's a little less, to waste everything. So need follow up again. Okay also the service, please let the clinic give you a bit of confidence how much of the session is needed later. - Original in Malay, translated by Google

This clinic gave me a good overall feel. Since I was from Sekinchan, the location was a bit hard for me to find. I think that the medicines given by the clinic are very effective. They have been effective for three to four days after their application. The medicines given by other clinics will take at least one or two weeks before they can be effective. - Original in Chinese, translated by Google

Almost three treatments were received. The first time it will be more expensive, the cost is in the RM500 or so, because there are some products to buy, such as gel, the second time about RM60 (just take the drug Bale). The third time around RM200, there was also medicine to buy cream. After receiving the first course of treatment, the staff also called me to follow up on the next course of treatment. After that, I will go back to the clinic on time. For the time being, I was still satisfied with the services provided by the clinic and the skin-sensitivity problems gradually improved. - Original in Chinese, translated by Google

The price was a bit costly, but treatment was very good! I'm very satisfied with the result. The waiting time was short, I no need to wait for long time. Also, clinic provides comfort environment and good service! One thing is they didn't issue the receipt unless I requested for it and didn't explain details about the treatment price. But, overall is good!

Everything in the clinic is good. After the doctor gave the patch, there is a gradual improvement. He will feel comfortable. The patch can also be used for two days!

There was a slight change, still in the process of treatment. I have received 5 sessions. This Sunday there will be a 6th session. For me, payments are also flexible enough to be in installments according to the agreed terms, with credit and debit cards, or payments at once. What I see is good. It does not take too much time for treatment and does not delay my time because the clinic also meets the promised date of the appointment. The only thing that can be improved is the waiting room. Can increase the number of couches because there are many people coming to the appointment. I hope the waiting place can accommodate more customers. - Original in Malay, translated by Google

Definitely big improvement. The nurse is very friendly, but I think the manager's attitude need to be improved. For example, the manager was asking the nurse about quite a long time is allocated to do the treatment.

My husband's skin is not good, the doctor gave him medicine + rubbing + bath products, spent a total of RM600 + + (I think a bit too expensive!). During treatment, my husband felt that the problem had improved, but after the drug was stopped, the problem was restored, so I plan to take my husband to do a physical examination. - Original in Chinese, translated by Google

In early July, go to this clinic to see my son's skin problems. At that time, the doctor gave some medicine and ointment. I paid a total of RM480. I think the price is a bit high! However, after the son saw the doctor, the skin was better, but now there is a little bit of iterating. - Original in Chinese, translated by Google

  • Jul 2014 - Hello, my names Kat, Im 21 and I moved to Malaysia around 1 year and a half ago. I have always had perfect skin living in Britain but 6 months into moving here suddenly my skin started going crazy. I suffer from an under active thyroid problem and I thought this was the cause, due to hormonal imbalance. Moment of trust... I was wrong! My doctor told me to see a dermatologist and so now my journey begins!

  • May 2014 - Just to share. I've been to MANY dermatologists in the past few weeks, looking for a knowledgeable doctor who can actually help treat/cure my skin problems. Now, I'm not talking about aesthetic doctors, I'm talking about proper skin specialists who look into treating a skin problem, not trying to make your skin glow etc etc.

Aug 2012 - Welcome to the second part of Dr Ting’s review. Review about his products & services to be precise. So, this post I’m gonna do review on the pills & products that I got 2 weeks ago. Yes. Exactly 2 weeks ago. On Saturday. Check out the following:...
Aug 2012 - As I promised in earlier post, I will be sharing my solution to defeat my worst enemy ever, ACNE! I’ve been battling with acne on my face for 10 years. 10 FREAKING YEARS! How on earth did I manage to survived that long? No. I did break down back then. Felt that I can’t or I don’t belong here, in this world. Oh. How sad....

Aug 2012 - Before I start sharing my journey and experience with him, let me tell you how I came about collaborating with him. Ever since my acne outburst in high school,...

Jan 2012 - I chose the clinic after I did some research regarding the best dermatologist in Malaysia and Dato' Dr. Lim Huat Bee is one of the famous dermatologist that most people being talking about. After reading the testimonials on forums and blogs, I finally decided to go there. Furthermore, one of my friends used to be his patient and it's worth it although the cost is quite pricey.

Feb 2011 - All in all, I've had 3 trips to Dr Ting, my last time was in Feb 2011, when the breakout hits again. Like the first time, it takes two weeks for me to feel the difference (my acne stops growing and new one starts to lessen). This time I really (try) to stick to the pill routine and use all the external creams properly, and boy it made all the difference!
