Dr. James Coffey MD F.R.C.P.C. Dermatology.
Our clinic offers a team based approach to patient care allowing us to work together towards excellence in service. Our nursing staff are qualified LPNs from the Centre for Nursing Studies. They continue to upgrade their skills through training specific to dermatology.
Our support and administrative staff are equally qualified in the medical systems and record keeping tasks required to run an effective and efficient clinic.
Demographically we cover a large region with patients ranging from infancy to geriatrics. As a result, we see a variety of skin conditions daily, allowing our qualified staff to utilize a wide range of skills and further develop their expertise in dermatology.
This commitment to quality training and continued professional development for our staff allows us to provide quality service.
