Got questions about relocating to the UAE? Take advantage of our new specialist consultation service?

Our specialist team of experienced consultants speak with Doctors and other Healthcare professionals on a daily basis to advise and support them with their plans to move to Dubai or other part of the UAE to take advantage of the financial benefits and lifestyle across the region.

In our experience, those thinking of relocating fall into the following two camps.

The first are those who have previously been to the UAE, or are perhaps currently working in one of the Emirates and thinking about moving to another. This group of people know a lot about the UAE and what to expect and already understand the licensing process. They look to Doctors in Dubai for assistance to obtain a new professional license in place or to find a suitable new job opportunity.

The second type of Doctor/Healthcare professional has never been to the UAE but has heard about the incredible financial rewards and lifestyle available to medical professionals here. Usually based in Europe, Canada, the USA or India, these professionals are looking for expert help and guidance to discuss the specific logistics of relocating to the UAE so that they (and their families) can enjoy the benefits of living here.

If you are someone who fits into the second group, then our consultation service is ideal for you. Our specialist service gives you the opportunity to arrange a one-on-one consultation with one of our Directors to discuss the logistics of relocating to the UAE, what to expect in the region and to comprehensively discuss any and all of your questions.

You will be speaking to Mario (Head of Recruitment) or Kaneez (CEO). Both are British expats who between them have over twenty years’ experience of living and working in the UAE. They regularly speak with healthcare professionals and clients across the UAE every single day, so there is no-one more expertly placed to advise you on all aspects of relocating. Mario and Kaneez have also just returned from their latest successful seminar held across a number of cities in India last month.

This is our latest service providing comprehensive information and advice catered to your personal circumstances and it starts from only $149 USD. Simply get in touch with the team on and they will arrange your one-to-one consultation at a mutually convenient time.

Praise for the UAE’s recent Breast Cancer awareness campaign

There has been a raft of praise for the UAE from both the general public and health professionals alike for the UAE’s recent Breast Cancer awareness campaign.

The campaign has been highlighting aspects of this devastating disease, including the importance of screening and early detection, as well as the latest advancements in treatment.

One of the results of this issue being raised in the public consciousness is the increased focus on helping women to move forward with their lives after Breast Surgery. While this issue remains sadly lacking in many parts of the world, one of Doctors in Dubai’s contacts is championing the need for medical micro-pigmentation.

Deepti Mehra is a medical micro-pigmentation technician working in London with 9 years experience. She sees patients from centres such as the Royal Marsden Hospital in her Clinic in Surrey. She is bringing her skills of medical micro-pigmentation to the United Arab Emirates and is gaining much support from Breast Surgery Centres in the region.

Deepti discusses what she is doing: “it is a delicate topic and one which patients are not always aware of. Sometimes, a surgeon who is familiar with nipple and areola restoration will form a small protrubence of skin to match the nipple on the unaffected breast. I then use this to apply the medical tattoo technique and produce a nipple and areola. The aim is to match the unaffected breast as best possible and give a more normal appearance to the operated side.”

Treatment such as this is now sought by thousands of women. As awareness of this procedure grows, so does the confidence and self-esteem of breast cancer survivors. Women have the right to have their feminity and to have their body image cared for a holistic part of their Breast Cancer Treatment Pathway.

Deepti concludes: “Women are now asking for medical tattoo for the nipple and areola following their surgery and many now feel the surgery is not complete without it. In my own practice I am now seeing ladies who were operated on years ago who now, through increased awareness, are wanting micro-pigmentation for their breast.”

Medical tattoo of the nipple and areola has changed for good the way women who have undergone breast surgery view themselves and their future.
