PHYSICIAN REFERRAL NEEDED
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.

Clinical Consultations

The WBPCN 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 do require a referral from their family physician in order to consult with him. Dr. Rao visits Fort McMurray on a monthly basis to visit patients out of our After Hours Clinic downtown.

Please note that the WBPCN'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.


Teledermatology

Depending upon your unique care needs, your Family Physician might refer you to the WBPCN'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.
