Referral Expectations

Karen is happy to see both adults and children with dermatological concerns. During your consultation you will be asked a number of questions. If you are taking any medications or using any creams, it is helpful if you can bring them with you to the consultation. She will then undertake a thorough examination of the skin and following this, discuss any further tests required, the likely diagnoses, and treatment options.
