Choosing a good doctor to treat skin related issues could be a daunting task considering the sheer number of skin clinics and dermatologists in Egypt. In the past 10 years alone, we have seen a 35% hike in the number of new dermatologists compared to the previous period. To save you the trouble, we carried out an in-depth survey of 500 skin clinics and dermatologists to reveal the absolute best Egypt has to offer. Our survey criteria was based on; results, client reviews, experience, education, waiting times, technology and prices. Without further ado, here are the best clinics or doctors to visit when you have a skin related issue.
Dr. Mona El Fangary
Based in 6th of October City, Dr. Mona El Fangary has been paving the way in Egypt’s field of cosmetic dermatology. Her vast experience has made her a reference point when it comes to skin rejuvenation, treatment of acne scars, and various cosmetic procedures such as; Botox, Fillers, Chemical Peeling, Mesotherapy, and more. Her results had a subtle, yet noticeable edge over the majority of dermatologists in Egypt. The clients seem very happy to the extent that 84% would recommend Dr. El Fangary to others. To put that into perspective, the average recommendation rate in our survey was 38%. The excellent results and client reviews should come as no surprise considering Dr. El Fangary’s vast amount of experience in dermatology. Waiting times average around an hour, which is slightly more than we hoped for but overall, Dr. El Fangary scored superbly in most of our criteria to warrant a spot among Egypt’s top dermatologists.

ZO Skin Centre by Zein Obagi, MD
Dr. Zein Obagi is a world-renowned US-based dermatologist and one of the go-to doctors for A-list celebrities. He founded ZO Skin Centre and opened up two branches in Egypt – one in the Fifth Settlement, and the other in Zamalek. While Dr. Zein doesn’t actually practice in Egypt, the team in place are more than capable of offering an equally brilliant service. Between them, they offer a wide range of medical and cosmetic treatments. Naturally, we feared that this is a classic “Jack of all trades, master of none.” How wrong we were… clients raved about the results, technology is bleeding-edge, and average waiting time is under an hour. The doctors are kind, friendly, and ready to answer any questions you may have. Finally, their prices are ever so slightly on the expensive side but we think they are worth it nonetheless. Highly recommended!

Dr. Mohamed El-Nazer – El-Nazer Clinic
Few skin clinics in Cairo, or Egypt for that matter hold a candle to El-Nazer Clinic when it comes to client reviews. Almost every client of this clinic that we surveyed gave positive feedback. Not to mention, a category-high recommendation rate of 88%. Generally, the clients praised the results of the brilliant Dr. Mohamed El-Nazer, while pointing out his patience and how comfortable he made them feel. We should point out that Dr. Mohamed is not the oldest dermatologist we’ve come across in our survey, but few doctors showcased the amount of knowledge and raw talent that he has. El-Nazer Clinic uses the latest technologies and equipment, and manages to keep prices within the normal range. Overall, we believe this is a great clinic that shouldn’t be overlooked.

Last but not least is Rederm Clinic in Alexandria lead by the brilliant Dr. Haitham Alsaadawy. The client reviews category is filled to the brim with positive experiences that highlight Dr. Haitham’s talent, knowledge, and consequently his excellent results. The whole team is qualified and they all had something extra that other clinics were missing… A humble, warm and friendly attitude that we think is vital for any clinic – be it medical or cosmetic. Technology is on par with the best dermatologists in Egypt so we have no complaints in this department. Yet sadly, there is one area that is stopping Rederm from featuring higher on our list and that is waiting times. During busy periods, waiting times can be unbearably long. Several clients claimed they waited more than an hour, and in one particular bad case, one client had to wait three hours. Ending on a positive note, the pricing is well within the normal range, and reasonable in comparison to many of the dermatologists in Egypt.
