Do I need a referral to be seen at the clinic?

No referral is required. However, we do encourage referrals from your own general practitioner.

How long does a "Full Skin Examination" take?

Allow 10-15 minutes for the consultation, however it may take longer depending on the individual. Please arrive early to register at reception.

Do I need to undress?

To have a full skin examination – you are advised to undress, leaving your underclothes ON. You may choose to have only one region or area that you are concerned about examined, but this is not recommended by our doctors.

What do I need for the appointment?

1. DO NOT WEAR ANY MAKEUP. Non-tinted moisturiser is OK.
2. YOU NEED FULL PAYMENT FOR THE SERVICE - cash or credit/debit card. AMEX not accepted.
3. YOUR CURRENT MEDICARE CARD. If you have your current Medicare details, we can send the claim online to Medicare for you.
4. If you are a VA gold card holder, you will need your card.

What if the Doctor finds a possible skin cancer or melanoma?

Generally you will be advised to have the tumour biopsied or have it removed.

What is Dermoscopy?

Dermoscopy is simply the examination of a mole using a dermatoscope. This may be a hand-held dermatoscope or in our practice, a high-resolution video dermatoscope. It is recognised as the international standard when performing a skin cancer examination. It requires extensive training, but substantially increases the accuracy of skin cancer and melanoma diagnosis. While a high quality dermatoscope is essential, the most important factor is the doctor’s training in dermoscopy i.e. interpreting what is seen through the dermatoscope.

What is a High-resolution Dermatoscope?

A high resolution dermatoscope is a hand-held dermatoscope that is connected directly to a computer, displaying a high resolution image (generally 3-5 Megapixels) live to an LCD computer screen. The images are viewed instantly but can be stored if required for future follow-up.

How is the Dermatoscope used?

The skin is moistened with an alcohol wipe and the dermatoscopic camera lens is applied directly onto the skin. It is painless and harmless. Please do NOT wear make-up on areas to be examined.
