Skin Cancer Specialist

Do you need a Skin Check?

From the 13th of February 2018 a skin cancer specialist will be joining the team on Tuesdays, Dr Ahmad Hasanien.

Dr Hasanien is a family medical physician who is trained and specialised in skin caner diagnosis and treatment.

He earned his medical degree at the University of Ain Shams in Cairo, Egypt. He completed his advanced clinical certificated in dermoscopy and skin cancer medicine with the Skin Cancer College of Australasia which is in the Northern Rivers region of NSW. This area is known to have one of the highest skin cancer rates in Australia.

From his years of clinical experience, Dr Hasanien understands how easy it is to feel concerned prior to a skin check and become overwhelmed following a skin cancer diagnosis. When you leave his consult, we will make sure you leave with one of the following:

– The all Clear, meaning you have no obvious skin cancer
– One or more lesions that need to be monitored or biopsied to confirm a diagnosis
– Removal of one or more lesions due to its high probability of being a skin cancer

Dr Hasanien will guide your treatment from start to finish and ensure you are comfortable during the process. He will ensure any removals provide the best cosmetic result and are cost effective.

To book in or for more information, please contact reception on 9818 1355.

Please note, Dr Hasanien is a private billing doctor and additional procedural fees may apply.

Together we have helped create awareness and remove the stigma from mental illness. We are incredibly grateful.
It was a beautifully sunny day full of laughter and some aching muscles but we loved every moment.

The Australian Vietnamese Aged Care Services (AVACS)

Rozelle Medical Centre is proud to announce we will be donating all charity water profits to The Australian Vietnamese Aged Care Services (AVACS).

The Australian Vietnamese Aged Care Services (AVACS) is a non-profit, charitable and public benevolent association. It cares for the financially disadvantaged, frail and lonely elderly people in the community, especially the people from non- English speaking (culturally and linguistically diverse) backgrounds.

The Vietnamese community has the second highest proportion of people over the age of 70. There is a high demand and need for having specific aged care facility for Vietnamese older people.
Services that are specific to Vietnamese older people are important because it will not only provide families with peace of mind, but will also ensure that the elderly have access to a facility that is culturally, linguistically and religiously sensitive to the needs of elderly Vietnamese Australians.

Contribute to this great cause by purchasing our Charity Water – $3.00 a bottle
