Specialties

Dr. Helen Shim-Chang has the following 2 specialties

  • Dermatology

    A dermatologist is a doctor who has extensive training and knowledge of the skin, scalp, hair and nails and treats conditions that affect those areas. These doctors will evaluate any abnormality, blemish or lesion on the skin in order to determine the cause and will determine a course of treatment.
    Dermatologists provide patients with full body scans in order to identify any signs that are indicative of an illness that requires treatment, such as skin cancer. These specialists may also provide cosmetic services, such as mole removal, scar diminishing treatments and even botox and face lifts.

  • Pathology

    A pathologist is a physician who specializes in the causes and paths taken by different diseases in order to accurately diagnose an illness.
    Pathologists diagnose and determine the characteristics of a disease through the study of biopsies of diseased tissue or of bodily fluids. For example, a pathologist will look at a biopsy of a skin lesion in order to diagnose or rule out skin cancer. A pathologist will also look at a Pap smear in order to check for a gynecological cancer like cancer of the uterus.

Excellent dermatologist.

Dr. Shim-Chang is an excellent dermatologist and a kind and caring doctor as well. I would recommend her without reservation. Her staff is also very courteous and pleasant. My only negative comment - she has cut her hours recently and it is now much more difficult getting an appointment with her.

It's impossible to book an appointment in the dermatology department. If Dr. Shim wishes to see me in 3 months, can not get an appointment for 6 months. As good as Dr. Shin is, not realistic with a skin cancer patient with aggressive Squamous.
