Lasers are an important component of a cosmetic medical practice. They treat many skin conditions, such as hyperpigmentation, acne, telangiectasia (blood vessels), aging skin and many other conditions that are not easily treated by typical facial treatments. Patient education on pre- and post-laser care will optimize results and increase the patient's satisfaction with their provider and their finished look.

Our dermatologist Dr. Anatoli Freiman discusses skin cancer and dangers of tanning in Elle Canada magazine. Dr. Freiman recommends giving yourself regular exams – inspecting the body for changes in moles or the sudden growth of sores or skin discolorations. See your doctor for regular checkups if you are high risk (people with fair skin that burns or freckles instead of tans; blondes and red heads; those with many moles and people with a history of sun exposure or family history of melanoma). Dr. Freiman also suggests minimizing sun exposure between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., wearing a hat and sunglasses, and sporting a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 30.

The recent August 2015 issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology had 2 interesting findings of note to our patients:

1. 15.5% of patients with psoriasis have undiagnosed psoriatic arthritis

2. Patients with rosacea are more likely to have dyslipidemia (e.g. high cholesterol) and hypertension, as well as coronary artery disease. Some data even suggests that oral tetracycline type antibiotics may lower the incidence of vascular events.

Q. Can you see my daughter or son (not a current patient) without a referral?
A. For all medical dermatology issues, all new patients must obtain a referral.
Q. How do I get a referral to see you if I don’t have a family doctor?
A. Any medical doctor can refer you, such as a cardiologist or rheumatologist. Also, any walk-in clinic doctor can refer you as well.
Q. Will I have to wait to see the doctor?
A. Usually not. Our doctors are generally very good at running on time, although emergencies come up, as well as fluctuations in patient flow due to traffic, weather, and other factors which influence when your doctor will see you. Just in case, bring something to read or do. If for some reason you were made to wait and you have someplace else to be, then let the front desk know to reschedule you - in general, try not to book errands/appointments too close to your doctor’s appointment due to the unpredictable nature of medical practice.
Q. Are the doctors at Toronto Dermatology Centre any good?
A. They are. Our physicians are all board certified and have received numerous awards, presented and published scientific papers all over the world, published numerous books, and are respected by the medical and patient community at large. More importantly, they truly care about providing excellent patient care through timeliness, courtesy, kindness, professionalism, and expertise in medical diagnosis and treatment.
Q. Is there parking at Toronto Dermatology Centre?
A. Thankfully there is ample parking, in fact 2 main lots at ground level, and 1 underground lot, more than almost any other medical building in the city. Parking fees are also very reasonable. For free parking, there are options on local side streets, across the street at Earl Bales Park, or the local plaza at Bathurst & Sheppard.

Oh, wait you probably would, because aren't we all connected? I know I check out everything online, every question I have, every doubt I have. And for some reason, we believe if it says so there, then it must be true....
