960. A Day in the Life: What's It Really Like to Be a Cosmetic Dermatologist?
Dr. Allen Lycka
“It was easy to become a great dermatologist because I stood on the shoulders of giants in the profession and these giants were there to lead and guide me. Doctor Martin Victor Dal, one of the greatest dermatologists ever, along with Doctor Peter Lynch, another equally renowned doctor, were chairmen of my department. They looked at me and said, ‘Allen, all you have to do is be who you are and you will become a great dermatologist.’”
