Who are the other dermatologists on 'When Skin Goes Wrong'?

Dr. Emma McMullen is joined on the gross-but-satisfying series by three other accredited dermatologists and their respective staffs.

One of her co-stars is Dr. Natalia Spierings, who was actually the first person viewers met on the first episode of the show. She's a consultant dermatologist who trained at St. George's at the University of London. Dr. Natalia is also a director at Dermatica.

If you noticed that Dr. Natalia doesn't have a strong accent like her co-stars, it's because she spent much of her upbringing in the United States. Though she wasn't born in the U.S. (she is originally from the Netherlands), she resided in Boston for 13 years while she was growing up.
