One Doc Medical is one of the local startup scene’s most striking features – or rather, producer of striking features. “We focus on medical-grade treatments that combat skin concerns such as pimples, pores, pigmentations and signs of ageing,” smiles Dr Michael Ong, CEO and co-founder of the laser and aesthetic establishment. Seated across from me in their two-storey Sunway Velocity branch – with co-founders Doctors Teoh Tean Chun and Chin Boon Keat also present to his right – Michael continues to tell me that the company emphasises on providing non-invasive, safe, and affordable skin treatments for everyone. “We want to become the leader in Malaysia’s laser aesthetic market within three years’ time – to be the nation’s most preferred medical aesthetic centre.”
“When you think laser technology for skin, we want you to think One Doc Medical,” Teoh adds, flashing me his signature grin as the other two give slow nods on the side.There is a sudden pause in our conversation as the doctors notice the look of awe and amusement on me – surely this is an ambitious quest? I mean, it’s not impossible but it is a big dream for an establishment that’s opened not too long ago.
“We opened our first outlet in May 2016 at IOI Boulevard, Puchong. And since then, we’ve rapidly expanded to 10 branches,” Teoh shares, eyebrows knitted in consideration. “This rapid expansion is not only made possible by the hard work by the team, but also from our customers who believe in us and what we do.” That is an impressive feat indeed, further cemented by the fact that One Doc Medical and its team has been awarded several accolades this year, including the Emerging SME Brand 2018 by The Golden Bull Awards and the 2018 Malaysian Aesthetic Medicine Growth Excellence Leadership Award by Frost and Sullivan. “These prove our position as the nation’s fastest growing medical aesthetic centre,” Chin beams. The Medical Director proceeds to point out that their medical facial treatments stand out with its straightforward effectivity and simplicity, giving you less hassle for greater skin. “We are devoted to serving our customers across The Klang Valley, Penang as well as Johor. And dream of expanding across the shores to Indonesia, China, Vietnam and Cambodia; to give everyone a shot at achieving clearer, radiant and youthful skin,” he gives a contagious grin, one that reassures me that if any- body can achieve this big dream, it’s them.
