Hello, how are you?
I am Pedro Navarro Guillamon, specialist in Dermatology and Venereology. Since 2018 I have dedicated myself to taking care of the largest and most precious organ of the body, the skin. The Dermatologist is the best trained specialist for the care of both healthy and diseased skin.
And now I am going to answer some questions you might have…
Where were you trained as a Dermatologist? I had the honour of being trained at the Hospital Universitario Virgen de la Victoria of Malaga. I was also able to complement this training with stays in the Pediatric Dermatology service at Hospital La Paz in Madrid and in the Dermatopathology service at UCSF (University of California San Francisco) in San Francisco (USA).
Where do you work ? Currently I combine my practice in the public health system at the Hopistal Universitario Virgen de la Victoria with private practice in my personal medical clinic located in Malaga city center.
How do you understand Medicine and Dermatology? My vision of Medicine and Dermatology has three fundamental pillars: knowledge, closeness and communication. My medical care is based on an anamnesis and dermatological examination to achieve the desired diagnosis.
This examination will often include an iconographic study, dermoscopy and/or trichoscopy. Next, we will establish together an appropriate therapeutic strategy. Within the dermatological therapeutic arsenal I will put at your disposal topical, oral and infiltrated medication directly into the skin. We will also carry out medical cosmetic treatment to improve the general health of your skin. Therefore, the approximate duration of the consultations is 20-30 minutes.
What languages do you speak during consultation? I attend both in Spanish and English.
Which are your pathologies of greatest interest? Difficult question…I would say Acne, Rosacea, Melasma, Atopic Dermatitis, Tumoral and Inflammatory Pathology, Dermatological Surgery, among many others.
What age range do you receive in you dermatological clinic? From children to the oldest in the house, everyone is welcome.
Do you work with private insurance companies? No, in the consultation model that I carry out I only see private patients or those with medical reimbursement insurance.
What happens if I don’t live in Malaga? Nothing to worry about, the online consultation modality is also available. Besides, medical prescription can be sent via email.
