Did you know that Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world? The majority of skin cancers in Australia are caused by exposure to UV radiation in sunlight.
Regular assessment of your skin is important for the early detection and treatment of any suspicious skin lesions.
Dr Peter Walsh offers a total skin assessment at our bulk-billing Skin Clinic on Tuesday afternoons.
Book online today through Healthengine.
Select ‘Skin Clinic’ and make your appointment; or, alternatively, call our friendly front desk team and request they make an appointment in the Skin Clinic – Call 9383-2493.
You will not incur any out-of-pocket costs for this service, as we will send your account directly to Medicare for payment. Procedural out-of-pocket costs will be incurred if removal of any skin lesions are recommended.
