What comes to your mind when you think about a dermatologist?

The medical practitioner who knows how to diagnose and treat a wide variety of dermatological or skin problems.


But there’s more to it.

And we believe everyone should be familiar with it.

The best dermatologist adds value to his work.

Not the monetary value, no.

We’re talking about a value where the physical and mental well-being of patients is respected.

Which also brings effectiveness and efficiency to the treatment.

And, encourages trust between the doctor and the patient.

Let us introduce you to one such dermatologist, Dr. Shaunakk Patel, MD Dermatology and Fellow in Aesthetic Medicine (FAM).

“Trends change but the value systems don’t. Every time the life throws a curveball, having a devout faith in one’s belief system ushers the path to success”.

This belief of Dr. Shaunakk has led to the establishment of Opulence Dermatology & Aesthetics.

And it is successfully serving thousands of patients with a variety of treatments and technology.

So, what is he like?

Dr. Shaunakk Patel is calm and polite and specializes in analyzing the patients’ problems and treating them.

Over the course of time, he has gained an understanding of how skin disorders progress. Along with that, he has discovered and understands how the patient feels at various phases.

He believes in a patient-centric treatment and works accordingly.

His skill, his ideologies, and how much he values his patients have made him an exceptional dermatologist.

Always working to create a combination of personal care with a great quality of medical care.

 As a by-product of that, his patients are satisfied with him.

Many of such factors have an impact on the doctor’s ability to deliver the best possible care.

Let us elaborate on these factors based on the personality of Dr. Shaunakk Patel as a dermatologist in detail:

Ability to Communicate

A Dermatologist needs to cultivate strong and sharp communication skills and make the patients feel understood so they can address their needs.

Dr. Shaunakk Patel develops and maintains a non-judgmental, open-minded relationship.

He considers this to be crucial as the patient should feel encouraged to speak freely and honestly.

It helps to create a potent treatment plan.

Good communication also means active listening.

Dr. Shaunakk is naturally a patient listener which makes the patients feel heard and puts their minds at ease.

Approachable, easy to talk to, and friendly. He checks all of these boxes.

Dermatologists can only communicate well if they can relate to the patient and treat them with compassion.

That brings us to the next point.

Empathy and Compassion

Patients are impacted greatly by an empathetic and compassionate demeanor.

They often experience anxiety or insecurity when seeking medical therapy.

Dr. Shaunakk puts himself in the shoes of patients and feels the problem they are going through.

He views the patient as a whole person, not just a person on his appointment list.

He does not only act as a dermatologist but also strong support through your dermatological problems.

Genuine care about making you feel better is his belief towards you. 

This is why he personally goes above and beyond to ensure that all of your concerns are addressed.

Personal and professional care brings a balance.

And a dermatologist should care genuinely for his patients in both aspects, equally.

Genuine Medical Attention and Care

The points above focus more on a personal touch.

But only focussing on that could disbalance the scale of medical care.

A dermatologist’s medical knowledge is vital.

Dr. Shaunakk examines his patients patiently and advocates their needs by guiding them with all his medical knowledge.

He is friendly, but also carries out treatments professionally and takes the concerns seriously.

“A perfect amalgamation of accurate diagnosis & the best standards of practice for patient care using safe & proven internationally certified technologies under one roof.” 

Dr. Shuanakk stands by this and works with the patients to choose the right treatment option for themselves.

But, some things might catch a dermatologist off-guard, like a rare dermatological disorder.

They must possess appropriate problem-solving skills for the same.

Problem Solving Skills

People are unique with five different kinds of skin types.

Dermatological problems affect these skin types differently and a dermatologist should know how to manage them.

Dr. Shaunakk keeps his cool at every step, from consulting to treating the patient.

That gives his mind time to think clearly and come to a solution.

Being calm is a very crucial ability because that helps in dealing with different kinds of problems.

He has enhanced his problem-solving skills with time which is why his patients can rely on him.

And these patients play a big part in the reputation of a dermatologist.

Good Reputation

A good reputation gives an identity to the dermatologist.

Dr. Shaunakk Patel carries his identity very well with honest medical and personal care to the patients.

He does not only treat them but also educates them.

Coming across new types of cases is not new for him and that keeps him prepared to handle them with his expertise.

There are several rare and under-diagnosed dermatological problems, some of them are even misdiagnosed.

Dr. Shaunakk has a reputation for correctly diagnosing his patients and giving his best to fulfill his commitments.

But, a good reputation doesn’t mean you have achieved everything.

The world is changing at a fast pace and a dermatologist needs to cope with their willingness and ability to keep on learning.

Willingness to Keep Learning

The technology keeps on expanding.

It is the responsibility of a dermatologist to learn and adapt it to give the best medical care to his patients.

Willingness to keep on learning helps you move forward and Dr. Shaunakk Patel has always been excited to do that.

Not only he is updated with the medical advancements but he also learns from the experiences of patients with different perceptions. 

That is how you gain experience, right?

Dr. Shaunakk has shaped himself to use this experience for his patience in a way that results in the best interest of the patient.

He never stopped believing in himself and his team in the ability of Opulence Dermatology & Aesthetics to heal people.

Team Spirit

A dermatologist cannot carry out all of their operations alone.

But what makes them greater is having a team that works in harmony with them.

A great dermatologist understands the meaning of working together and the meaning of team spirit.

“Coming together is a beginning, Keeping together is progress, and Working together is success”

Dr. Shuanakk Patel is a great believer in this quote.

And he thinks that forming a team should be the first and most important activity on anyone’s to-do list.

Fostering ideas and nurturing others to share the vision and concepts requires a lot of effort and care.

That is what leads a company to run smoothly and stand tall in the face of adversity.

His team pushes him to work harder and he does the same to them.

Let’s take a look at what his team has to say about working with him.
