Physician Referral Needed
To access this program, you need a referral from a family physician. If you do not have a local family physician, visit Alberta Find A Doctor to search physicians accepting new patients.
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.
