Looking for an appointment?

SKiN Health specializes in all aspects of dermatology, including the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of skin, hair, and nail conditions. We offer OHIP-covered assessments and procedures, as well as non-OHIP-covered services, and actively participate in clinical dermatology research trials.

A physician referral is required for all OHIP-covered assessments and treatments. Please consult your primary care provider for any dermatologic concerns; they will decide if you need a specialist. You can book appointments directly with our clinic for non-OHIP-insured benign lesion removals or for participation in a research trial.

New and returning patients are asked to complete the Patient Information Form which will be emailed in advance of their appointment.
