Skin expert

    He is an expert in all skin diseases, diseases of hair, nails and sexually transmitted diseases. He is a keen listener and allows his patients to communicate. Most skin diseases require Counselling as they are chronic and sometimes, disfiguring causing tremendous anxiety. Dr. Rajan takes his responsibility very seriously and explains in detail to his patients about how to cope with them even if cure is slow to come.

      The counsellor

      • From early years of his medical career in  government hospitals  he observed that busy doctors are quick to hand over prescriptions even before the patient has explained his case. In dermatology many skin diseases do not have quick solutions and the patient needs to know why. Dr. Rajan lays emphasis on this aspect of his practice and counsels every patient about his skin or sex related condition. He calls it  "Participatory Therapy" wherein the patient participates in his cure!

      The writer

      • Dr. Rajan regularly writes in various websites and periodicals on several social issues as well as those relating to the pharmaceutical industry. He was the Souvenir Editor for Asian Dermatology Congress 2016. He has authored a chapter in the Textbook of Cosmetic Dermatology: A Practical and Evidence-Based Approach and has several publications in numerous websites, newspapers and periodicals. He simplifies complex skin disorders into simple language making it easy for the reader to understand their disease.

      The teacher

      • He regularly lectures doctors on skin and sexually transmitted diseases. In addition he advises Pharmaceutical industries on drug development, promotion and marketing strategies. He believes, education of the general public is the key to successful treatment of skin disorders.

      The social worker

      • Until the pandemic began, Dr. Rajan was a Hon. Consultant to Larsen & Toubro Ltd, Air India and ONGC.
