We offer a convenient, professional and skilled GP service with special interests in skin related issues such as skin cancer medicine, general primary care dermatology consultations, skin allergies, wound care and minor surgical procedures including skin cancer surgery. Our clinic is fully equipped and Dr. Bakker can perform most procedures onsite, including treatment of pre-cancerous sunspots and surgical excisions if required, referring any that need more specialised care.
We provide comprehensive skin cancer checks and advice ranging from initial skin checks to early diagnosis of skin cancer. We use high-resolution digital photography for early and timely diagnosis of skin cancer. We are all at risk from the suns damaging radiation. Through early intervention and yearly skin checks you can dramatically improve the outcome of this almost entirely preventable disease. Even skin that has never been exposed to the sun can develop skin cancer.
Regular skin checks mean early detection and early detection is the key to beating skin cancers. Our skin checks only take about 15 minutes but they are worth every second. We recommend a full body check every 12 months but you can choose to only have specific moles or blemishes checked if you prefer.
If you choose to visit us for a simple skin check you can feel safe in the knowledge that our practitioner is highly qualified in providing you with the best of care and have the latest tools in the fight against skin cancer.
Skin Doctor Toowoomba aims to provide the highest quality of care for all kinds of dermatological conditions and be thorough and consistent in the early detection, treatment and management of all types of skin cancer.
