Ricky Kanee Schachter Dermatology Centre

The Ricky Kanee Schachter Dermatology Centre offers a General Dermatology Clinic as well as seven specialty clinics including the Melanoma and Pigmented Lesion Clinic, Transplant Clinic, Transitional Clinic, Hair Loss Clinic and The Ethnic Skin and Research Unit.

General Dermatology Clinic
This clinic offers a wide variety of services and treatments. We assess and manage a spectrum of skin conditions including acne, psoriasis, eczema, rosacea, benign lesions, skin cancer, as well as other less common skin diseases. A referral from a physician is required.  Please note that some elective services are not covered by OHIP and may be subject to a fee. 

Transplant Clinic

Patients with solid organ transplants (including heart, kidney and lung) have special health problems because of the drugs they use to suppress the immune system. Skin cancer, other malignancies, and infections are more common in these patients. The transplant clinic offers expertise and extra time for diagnosis and management, as well as rapid referral, when necessary, to our in-house skin cancer surgeons. Referral from a physician is required.

Immunobullous Clinic
For patients with autoimmune blistering diseases such as pemphigus vulgaris. Referral from a physician is required. Patient education with our registered nurses and pharmacist is available upon request.

Transitional Clinic
For patients with dermatologic problems who are transitioning from paediatric care to adult dermatology.  Also for adolescents and young adults who have skin diseases and want to discuss other issues related to their skin disorders.  Referral from a physician is required.

Hair Loss Clinic
Tertiary cente for the diagnosis, medical treatment and research of hair loss. Written referral is required from a dermatologist, endocrinologist and gynecologist or by special arrangement with Dr. Charlene Linzon.
