What is the philosophy behind PHIMED?
As a pioneer in the non-public medical services industry, PHIMED cares about women’s beauty and health.
Our vision is to combine a warm service attitude with rich international medical experience, to create a better health management experience for women. High-end health management services must not only do the right thing – cure the disease – but also see and support the whole patient.
People invest in banks, houses or stocks, but they begin to realize – especially women – that it is equally important to invest in themselves, to focus on themselves, physically and mentally, and we’re here to help them do that – to help them understand what’s really going on with them.
We think people deserve this kind of treatment, and we wanted to make it small, private, dignified – and make people feel comfortable.
As a dermatologist, what are the most common skin problems you encounter?
The skin is the largest organ in the human body, the first line of environmental exposure and our first line of defense. And when it comes to skin issues, there are over 3,000 kinds.
And there are different ways to deal with them all. For example, I could give you a three minute consultation and give you a prescription for a short term solution…and you will continue to be depressed, because with medication it may subside, but two days later, this comes back.
So, we are much more than that at PHIMED. We spend a lot of time explaining the problem to patients so they understand the problem, how to treat it, and why they need to treat it this way.
So how much would you say you offer treatment, and how much do you counsel people on lifestyle so they can avoid treatment?
I would say half and half. You want patients to come see you as often as they need, but if you see me twice a week, I’m a failure, right?
So I tend to spend more time giving patients an idea of why they have a certain problem; other than treating it and fixing it this time, is there anything we can do to make sure it doesn’t happen again?
I spend a lot of my time explaining to the patient what is happening, helping them understand the problem and the cause of the problem. And talk about how they will confront, embrace and solve the problem, both physically and mentally.
You will also focus on mental health…
This is our next step, and a very important and very interesting part of the process.
We see people in their 40s and 50s going for a routine checkup, and the report will come back that they are healthy. Yet they tell us that they feel constantly tired, they don’t feel energized, they have trouble sleeping, they are in constant pain, they gain weight.
However, unlike in the West, there is still a stigma about visiting a psychiatrist or psychologist – 80-90% of people would be ashamed to tell people they are talking to a therapist, believing that it is not only embarrassing, but humiliating the family.
We want to break that stigma. Because everything is connected – the physical and the mental – and people need to spend more time on mental health, find out what the real problem is.
Again, this is part of the full PHIMED service.
