Dr. Muneeb Shah– known widely in social media as “DermDoctor” or “Doctorly” is the #1 dermatology influencer worldwide. With an ever-increasing number of followers reaching over 20 million across his platforms, Dr. Shah has become a trusted advisor for anyone seeking skincare education and dermatology, by creating content that is as informative as it is entertaining. He is a board-certified dermatologist with a passion for skincare education and improving healthcare access. “DermDoctor” recognizes social media as a powerful tool in bringing healthcare education to millions of people who lack the resources to get it otherwise.
Dr. Shah points out that, “There is a real access issue in the United States with healthcare. In certain areas, you cannot see a dermatologist…so there is a massive gap between patients and medical care that needs to be filled.” It is precisely this gap he seeks to fill, debunking skin-related myths and guiding his online community in their skin and dermatology needs. Furthermore, he emphasizes the importance of board-certified dermatologists in diagnosing and treating skin conditions and the impactful role teledermatology can play in providing access to proper medical care: “When access to an in-person visit is not feasible, many skin conditions can be diagnosed and treated virtually by a dermatologist with proper data. Pairing Cortina’s next-generation technology with its network of board-certified dermatologists is the innovative solution dermatology patients need. That’s why I am proud to be advising Cortina’s team to improve access.” In addition to bringing attention to a seamless solution for diagnosing and treating skin conditions, Dr. Shah is passionate about minimizing misdiagnosis. A common condition that gets overlooked is rosacea as it typically resembles acne or a sunburn. Dr. Shah and Cortina’s first of many educational assets under the medical content advisor role is an informational YouTube video that can be found on Doctorly, discussing key indicators and treatments for both skin conditions in depth.
