Specialises in skin conditions (such) as skin cancer and pigmented lesions
At samedaydoctor, we have a Consultant Dermatologist, Dr Lucia Pozo-Garcia, who visits our clinic on a weekly basis. She specialises in skin conditions and her main interests are skin cancer and pigmented lesions.
She is fully trained in dermoscopy, so if you have any moles that you are concerned about, she is the person to see. She also worked in a prestigious Paediatric Hospital in Madrid, and is happy to see children with skin conditions.
If you need to see a dermatologist and you are self-funding, then it is possible for you to book an appointment directly through our reception, without the need to see a GP first. Her rota varies so it is best if you call us directly and we can advise you of when she is available and book an appointment.

However if you would like your insurance to take care of the bill, they will usually require you to see a GP first ,who can then supply a referral if appropriate.
