We take care of your skin

so that you enjoy it

Chica alegre disfrutando de su piel

We often need to remember that our life also goes through our skin.

It is direct contact with the environment
It is the image of us that others see
It is the reflection of how we feel inside…

Your skin speaks about you, your emotions and your health.

Piel de gallina mojada

Feeling good and healthy and experiencing it in every pore of your skin. That is what you deserve, and for that we work every day at Gala clinic.

Pareja abrazada

Each patient who comes to the clinic has their own situation, problem and wish for a solution.

In our dermatology clinic, we listen to know how you feel and what worries you about the state of your skin.

From there, we look for the treatment that suits you the best.

Dra. Prof. Silvia Pérez Gala

Graduate in dermatology. Nº Col. 28/1407557

I founded Gala clinic with the purpose of doing skin medicine focusing on inner well-being.

In my 20 years of experience as a dermatologist, I have seen my patients regain quality of life and fullness through the health of their skin.

That is our reason to exist at the clinic. We like our team, and we work to offer you a space where you feel good.

Now, in addition to being director of Gala clinic, I am the head of the Dermatology Department at La Luz Hospital.

I am also an advocate for a real connection with people (patients, team, providers, etc.). I believe in active listening and empathy as ways to understand each other.

I like each patient to feel cared for and well-attended. That is why we emphasize the information and explanations we provide.

If you want to know about my whole career, studies, research and publications, you can find it here.

Some extra details in case you want to know me a little more…
