The cost of a consult depends on the type of service that you require.
All out-of-pocket costs are quoted up-front where possible.
Biopsies and Cryotherapy are bulk billed for all patients.
A cancellation fee may apply if appointments are not cancelled with an adequate advance notice.
Your doctor will have a chat with you about any concerns you may have regarding your skin. You will than need to get undress down to your underwear behind a curtain and lie on the bed.
Your doctor will then look at your body using a dermascope. This will include your face, chest, arms, back, and legs, your scalp, between your toes, and the soles of your feet.
After the examination your doctor will discuss any concerns and treatment options available if needed. Biopsies and Cryotherapy are usually performed on the day of your consult. Excision will be booked for another day except for country patients.
We do ask that our patients do not wear any make-up if possible. Also, to avoid having to book another appointment for your finger-and toenails to be checked, please remove any nail polish prior to the appointment or wear clear nail polish if possible.
