Dr Nooren Moti

Illovo (Sandton)

Shortly after qualifying as a medical doctor, Dr Nooren Moti started her dermatology registrar under the expert guidance of her mentor, Professor Joy Schulz. It was here that she undertook intensive dermatology training by being exposed to a wide variety of skin ailments.

This experience was fundamental in equipping her with the expertise to diagnose and treat even the most obscure skin complaints. She proved to be an avid registrar; winning the best clinical presentation at the South African Dermatology Congress in 2007 and the following year, being awarded the best clinical presentation by the Dermatology Dowling Club in the United Kingdom.

Coming from a whole family of doctors, medicine was a natural career choice for Dr Moti. Early on in her studies, she felt drawn to the study of skin – she believes that it is this organ that reflects our inner state of health. In addition to her interest and passion for the discipline, she decided to specialise in dermatology as a way to facilitate the early diagnosis of underlying medical conditions which often start to show on the skin.
