Making an appointment

For all new patients to Dermatology SA, a valid referral is required prior to booking an appointment. Referrals can be faxed, emailed or sent via HealthLink (HealthLink EDI: sadermat). A photo of the referral can be taken and emailed to dulwich@dermatologysa.com.au

Once we have received your referral, a file will be created in our system. Your referral will be given to the dermatologist to be triaged. Once the referral has been triaged you will receive an SMS advising that the process is complete, and you may call to schedule your appointment at Dermatology SA, and our receptionist will try to arrange the earliest possible appointment for you. If the doctor has triaged the referral as  urgent, you will be contacted by our receptionist.

Review patients (patients who have been seen before at our clinic) can call the clinic to make an appointment.

When calling us to make an appointment, please specify your preferred location for the consultation. Our receptionists will do their best to accomodate your needs. If it not possible for you to be seen within a time period suitable for you, you may be able to be seen earlier at another location where your dermatologist also consults. 

At your initial consultation please remember to bring along the following

  • Referral letter from your GP or specialist Medicare Card Aged Pension Card
  • Health Care Card or Veteran’s Affairs Card.
  • A list or photograph of the creams or ointments that you have been applying recently
  • Any relevant skin biopsy reports or blood test results. This would be particularly helpful if you have had these tests done interstate or overseas.
  • Photographs of your rash. This may be useful if your rash comes and goes and is not always present.

If you need to be seen regarding a skin problem concerning your face or if you are attending for a full skin check, please remember to remove your makeup well before your clinic appointment.
