With over 12 years of experience, Dr Samna is well-regarded as a clinical dermatologist in Chennai, and her calm and empathetic attitude towards patients has earned her a vast clientele.
Despite the rise of cosmetology where the focus may be solely on aesthetics, Dr Samna was very clear that she wanted to focus on being a clinical dermatologist and target those areas related to skin and hair.
These include treating skin infections and rashes, psoriasis, burns, eczema, dermatitis, performing minor aesthetic procedures like chemical peeling and removal of warts. Her key areas of interest are treating acne, hair and nail disorders, where she can perform skin biopsies and do consultations.
Having worked as a consultant dermatologist previously at Lifeline Hospital in Chennai, Dr Samna excels in counselling patients on lifestyle changes to lead a healthier life. She believes that this is an integral part of her everyday job, especially for patients who have fungal related infections. Skin and hair related issues are areas that many people are sensitive about and it can directly affect their confidence or interactions with the outside world. Dr.Samna has won fans for being able to deal with patients and their concerns with genuine empathy.
Given rising levels of stress and environmental conditions, Dr.Samna observes a rising incidence of skin or hair related issues amongst children and older people alike. This is one more reason why she believes in addressing each patient holistically as lifestyle, nutrition - all are contributing factors.
At The Capstone Clinic, given our approach to family medicine, Dr.Samna is available for consultations and treatments for all age groups.
In her free time, Dr Samna likes to read and keep herself up to date with current affairs in dermatology.
