Medical dermatology services encompass diagnosis and management of a vast number of dermatological conditions, including skin, genital, hair and nail problems.
I regularly see babies and children in my practice and have worked in combined clinics with allergists and general paediatricians.
As a dermatologist with a specialist interest in psychodermatology (a ‘psychodermatologist’) I treat the mind and skin together.
It is well known that skin cancer is the most common cancer world-wide, and the rates continue to rise.
I am trained in performing minor skin surgery for the purposes of diagnosis and management of skin lesions (including skin cancer) and other skin problems in children and adults.
Supporting your skin with appropriate skin care helps to maintain and enhance its natural properties as well as protecting from damage.
In addition to psychodermatology services I offer extended consultations to assess and manage other skin conditions (e.g. acne, eczema, psoriasis).
