Skin Clinic

Skin Cancer is the most common cancer in Australia and Australia has the highest rate of all skin cancers in the world. Australians are 4 times more likely to develop skin cancer than any other form of cancer. Skin cancers can be treated successfully if they are detected early.  

Our experienced medical practitioner, Dr Paul Paterson provides a full skin examination to assess any spots or lesions on the skin. Using imaging technology, suspicious lesions can be photographed and recorded for accurate monitoring and follow-up.

  • No referral necessary
  • We do not bulk bill for skin clinic consultations
  • 15min appointments

If a small procedure or treatment is required, this can often be done during the same consultation. However more complex procedures may require a separate appointment.
