How to book an appointment:

You can see any of our team by:

  • Self-refer

  • Ask about our 'see & treat' service

Insured patients should always inform their insurance company first before booking-in and seek authorisation. This is regardless if you have an excess on your policy.

A private dermatology phone/video consultation can be easily arranged for most skin problems.
