Dermatology Clinic

Dermatology Clinic Location: Jeanne Mance 5

Enter the hospital's main entrance on Brock Street and take elevators up to Level 5.  When you exit the elevator, turn right and take the second door on your left to the Registration Desk and waiting area.

Preparing for your dermatology appointment

Please bring:

  • your appointment slip
  • Health Insurance (OHIP) Card
  • a list of all medications you currently take or have used, including creams as well as pills.

If you have previously had biopsies or blood work done for the same condition you were referred for, please bring these reports with you or contact your referring doctor and request that they be forwarded to us.

Please note that in order for the dermatologist to make a proper diagnosis, they will need to be able to look at you skin. Please expect that you may be asked to get undressed. Please do not wear makeup or nail polish on your fingers or toes to your appointment.

Medical acts that are not covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) may require a fee paid by the patient.  This will be discussed with you prior to any such treatment.

Please allow 1-2 hours for your appointment.

Missed appointments

An appointment that has been canceled with notice of less than one business day will be considered a missed appointment, as no other patients can be booked in the slot.

If you miss your initial appointment your referring doctor will be informed and the consult returned.  Should you wish to reschedule, a new consult will be required which will be triaged according to the current waiting list and booked accordingly.

If repeated follow-up appointments are missed, you will be discharged from our care and your referring physician notified.  It will then be up to your referring physician or family physician to manage your ongoing care.

PLEASE NOTE: We will make every effort to see you as close to your appointment time as possible.  However, on occasion emergencies or unexpected situations may delay us.  We appreciate your patience should this occur.
