Currently, six physicians from our group have either completed or near completion of the Skin Cancer Medicine training program from Australia (HealthCert) in addition to previous extensive surgical experience.

Our facilities (two locations) have dedicated procedure rooms. To ensure timely bookings and smooth care we have a dedicated Skin Centre coordinator, Yasmin Khalili, who will process referrals, bookings, pathology reports tracking and reporting back to the referring doctors. We strive to accommodate referred patients within 2 weeks for a regular service and within 48 hours for an urgent matter. Our main clinic at 1200 Lonsdale Ave is open 6 days a week.
