Victoria Kuohung MD JD
Victoria Kuohung was born in Rochester, New York, into a family of physicians. She was raised in metro Chicago where she saw her father, an obstetrician-gynecologist, work endless hours to help his patients have healthy pregnancies. An old-fashioned physician, her father took care of entire families, from grandmothers, to mothers, to daughters and their babies. Dr. Kuohung now brings this commitment to caring for entire extended families to her own practice of dermatology in founding DermCare Experts.
She loves getting to know parents and their children, enjoys watching babies grow up to be toddlers, and has a knack for remembering all the details about what’s going on in your life. An aficionado of diverse cultures, Dr. Kuohung has worked abroad in Uganda and Bolivia, and for underserved populations in the United States such as the Navajo and Alaska’s Unalaska tribe. She speaks fluent Mandarin and decent Spanish, and is committed to addressing the diverse needs of people with a variety of skin types. She believes in giving back to the community, and holds free skin cancer screenings throughout the South Shore.
While she’s not working, Dr. Kuohung is eating at divey restaurants, negotiating truces between her four boys, and helping her husband find where he parked the car — again. Achieving healthy skin doesn’t happen overnight, but Dr. Kuohung will be there every step of the way, for the long haul, to help you attain your goals.

Swami Sundaresan MD
Swami Sundaresan is a board-certified dermatologist who comes to us from all the way from Texas. The son of two Indian immigrants, he grew up in Forth Worth and attended college at Texas Christian University and completed his medical training in Houston and Galveston. He enjoys seeing patients from all backgrounds and getting to know them as individuals. He practices evidence based medicine to effectively and safely treat all of his patients. He focuses on every patient’s needs and addresses all questions or concerns they may have.
While Dr. Sundaresan is not working, he enjoys spending time with his wife who is completing her psychiatry residency at Beth Israel Lahey in Boston. Together they are raising their precious goldendoodle puppy, Zara. On weekends in the summer and fall, you’ll find the family of three hiking the White Mountains of New Hampshire and exploring the different states of New England.
When Dr. Sundaresan was 8 years old, he began playing chess competitively and started traveling to tournaments around the country. He is still looking for a Boston chess club to join so let him know if you have any suggestions! He tries to make time to stay active and fit – he enjoys weightlifting in the gym, playing racquetball and pick-up basketball. He’s an avid sports fan and enjoys cheering on the Dallas Mavericks and Dallas Cowboys.
But one of his most important interests is taking care of his patients. Dr. Sundaresan always practices medicine with the advice one of his mentors gave him in mind: “The patient is at the center of our universe”.

At times DermCare Experts has physicians who are board-certified dermatologists cover the clinic when Dr. Kuohung is temporarily away. She knows all these dermatologists personally and would entrust her own care to them.
Anna Sarno Ryan MD
Anna Sarno Ryan MD is a board-certified dermatologist who works at DermCare Experts as its covering physician, taking care of patients as the need arises when Dr. Kuohung is temporarily away from the office.
Dr. Sarno Ryan was born in Boston, MA, the daughter of two Italian immigrants, and went to high school in Brighton. She rowed intramural crew in college and loves community theater, once performing in New Hampshire as Mrs. Bedwin in “Oliver”. After running her own solo practice in New Hampshire, she retired to help dermatologists like Dr. Kuohung who at times need an extra pair of doctoring hands when they are briefly away.
Dr. Sarno Ryan also volunteers extensively as a dermatologist, treating patients in India last year, and plans also to work in Africa and Asia. Dr. Sarno Ryan has a son who is following in her footsteps as a physician, and a daughter, who is a computer science major. Dr. Sarno Ryan firmly subscribes to what Dr. Patch Adams once said:” You treat a disease, you win, you lose. You treat a person, I guarantee you, you’ll win, no matter what the outcome.”
