GOK

During my early days in dermatology, I used to notice a rare condition being written as diagnosis by a senior colleague for few patients on their file. The condition was called GOK. I had absolutely no idea what this elusive condition GOK was, and I asked her one day to learn more about the condition. She explained to me that GOK stands for ‘God Only Knows’ and we had a hearty laugh.

With every passing year, my GOK moments started to become more frequent and after my transition to Cosmetic Dermatology, everything other than acne and melasma became GOK. I consoled myself that, I was probably undergoing a Benjamin Button retrogression towards the neo Google generation, who never had to remember anything, as everything is ‘searchable’. But Google was not the panacea for GOK as it was designed for more mundane tasks.

After several months of (GOK how many!) sleepless nights, I think I have succeeded in brewing the right elixir for GOK. Please try this elixir for yourself! Enter a short history of your GOK moments below and click ‘process’ to see what happens! The actual homepage is here.
