Dr Steve Karagiannis is an Australian GP and Skin Cancer Doctor with special interest and training in Early Skin Cancer Detection. He is a member of the Skin Cancer College of Australasia and his approach to skin checks is quite simple – if you are worried that your mole or skin lesion could be a cancer, then you should be seen and treated in the community within a few days. He divides his time between running his various SkinCheck Clinics, working as a GP in Dublin and returning a couple of times a year to Australia to complete further training in early skin cancer detection in order to maintain and improve his clinical skills. He recently completed Advanced Dermatoscopy and Histopathology training and attended the World Congress of Dermoscopy and Skin Imaging in April 2015 where the latest developments in early skin cancer detection were presented and discussed by Dermatologists and GPs from all over the globe. In December 2015 he completed further training in Dermoscopy and Malignant Melanoma in the USA which was run by the well known Mayo Clinic. Rest assured, Dr Steve maintains and updates his clinical skills on a regular basis.  He is currently undertaking a Professional Diploma of Dermoscopy through the University of Queensland and HealthCert which will be completed in April 2017.
