About us

Dr Kim first came into contact with skin cancer back in 2000 and things progressed from there. He was doing a rotation in plastic surgery during his basic surgical training at the Prince of Wales Hospital and Bankstown Hospital, when he learned how to operate on them.

As he became more experienced with skin cancer, Dr Kim spent a lot of time teaching other doctors about it. He wrote articles, textbooks and raised awareness for the condition in general.

Skin Cancer Awareness Campaign

Early detection can save lives.

One of my passion is to raise skin cancer awareness in our community so that skin cancers can be detected early.

Skin cancer awareness through Facebook

The best way to raise awareness is to allow people to see what real skin cancers look like. I have set up a Facebook page where I upload real photos of skin cancers from the patients I see on daily basis. One photo is uploaded every day. I am hoping that the community would be able to raise a flag and seek medical attention if they see skin cancer. https://www.facebook.com/eastwoodskincancer
