Why a dermatologist?
With at least four years post-grad specialised medical training in skin conditions, a dermatologist is a true medical skin specialist.

New Patients by referral only
We are currently only seeing urgent new patients referred by their General Practitioner. This is due to a shortage of dermatologists in Wellington, a growing wait time for appointments and the need to prioritise urgent cases. If you have a skin concern and are not currently registered with Wellington Dermatology, please see your GP in the first instance. Existing patients of Wellington Dermatology will be seen as usual.
