To access this program, you need a
referral from a family physician. If you do not have a local family physician,
please browse and contact a doctor on this list of
physicians accepting new patients to discuss this program.
The Wood Buffalo PCN has partnered with Edmonton-based dermatologist
Dr. Jaggi Rao to make specialized dermatology services available to residents
of our community right here in Fort McMurray.
Because Dr. Rao is a specialist, patients require a
referral from their family physician in order to consult with him.
Please note that the WB PCN's Dermatology Services are
available to patients in need of medically-necessary dermatological care only. We do not provide any form of aesthetic care or consultation.
Depending upon your unique care needs, your family physician
might refer you to the Wood Buffalo PCN's Teledermatology service. Instead of waiting for
an in-person assessment with Dr. Rao, you may be able to have your skin
photographed, and then securely transmitted to Edmonton to be reviewed remotely
by a dermatologist.
