Why see a dermatologist?

We are the medical experts caring for your skin, hair and nails.

Have you ever visited a dermatologist?

Dermatologists combine cutting-edge science with proven medical, surgical and laser treatments, to give you the best chance of treatment success.

It can be extremely stressful when you, or a loved one may be struggling with a skin condition. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Through expert knowledge, treatment and caring support, dermatologists can support individuals and their families to reduce the stress caused by skin conditions.

Dermatologists help monitor, manage and treat skincare issues arising from too much time spent in the sun. To know your risk of skin cancer, talk to a dermatologist.

Research reveals people feel dermatologists show courtesy and respect to their patients, listen carefully, and provide a good explanation of diagnosis and valuable post-visit instructions.

Next time you visit your GP, ask for a referral to a dermatologist to reduce the stress of a worrying skin, hair or nail concern.
