“Doctor, please get this wart off my nose!” “Doctor, my piercing is stuck.” “Doctor, I can hardly bear to look at myself.”

After over ten years running a private practice, dermatologist Flora Fischer has seen a wide and surprising range of patients and skin conditions. The most common consultations are the craziest diseases, from crabs to syphilis, and requests for aesthetic surgery—Dr. Fischer has seen it all!

The doctor brings us right into her private practice where she scrutinizes skins of all ages. Whether for a minor diagnosis or suspected cancer, she always uses tact and sensitivity to describe the secrets of her intellectual and humane profession. And this is because we also follow the journey of the doctor herself, with its joys and hopes of finding cures, but also her hesitations and regrets.

Whether funny, odd, or emotional, the day-to-day chronicles of a dermatologist bring us into the intimacy of patients’ lives and personal stories. But above all, they also say a lot about our society: from caring for HIV in the 1990s to battling cancer today, along with the difficulties of the medical profession, the patient-physician relationship, and the recent mania of internet self-diagnosis… in sum, everything related to healthcare in our modern world.
