Ricky Kanee Schachter Dermatology Centre

WCH Dermatology Centre offers expanded services and shorter wait list

The Ricky Kanee Schachter Dermatology Centre at Women’s College Hospital has expanded. In order to reduce wait times and reserve time slots for urgent appointments, we have hired three additional dermatologists and have expanded the areas of expertise available to our patients. Dermatologists at the clinic have extra training and special interest in:

  • General dermatology – including pigmented lesions, skin cancer, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, dermatologic surgery, complex medical dermatology
  • Cosmetic dermatology
  • Male genital skin disease
  • HIV dermatology
  • Autoimmune skin diseases
  • Virtual care models in dermatology and teledermatology
  • Pediatric dermatology

The centre offers this expertise as well as well as several specialty clinics including:

General Dermatology Clinic
This clinic offers a wide variety of services and treatments for a variety of skin conditions including acne, psoriasis, eczema, rosacea, benign lesions, skin cancer, as well as other less common skin diseases.

Transplant Clinic
For patients with solid organ transplants (including heart, kidney and lung) who have special health problems because of the drugs they use to suppress the immune system. 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.

Transitional Clinic
For patients transitioning from pediatric care to adult dermatology, and for adolescents and young adults who have skin diseases and want to discuss other issues related to their skin disorders.
