At the High Risk Skin Cancer Clinic, we take a team approach to your care.

High Risk Dermatologists

Our specialists offer an advanced level of care to patients who are at a higher risk of skin cancers; they see patients more often and allow more time for each visit. The latest treatments available, such as chemo wraps and photodynamic therapy are part of our everyday treatment plans.
