Dr. Steve Karagiannis

Dr Steve Karagiannis is an Australian Skin Cancer Doctor as well as a GP. His special interest and training is in Early Skin Cancer Detection using Dermoscopy which is the gold standard for detecting melanoma at its earliest identifiable stage. 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 by doctor trained in the use of Dermoscopy 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. In December 2015 he completed further training in Dermoscopy and Malignant Melanoma detection in the USA which was run by the well known Mayo Clinic and in February 2016 he was in Melbourne undergoing a Skin Cancer Therapeutics course.  Rest assured, Dr Steve maintains and updates his clinical skills on a regular basis in order to identify a melanoma at its earliest detectable stage. He just completed a Professional Diploma of Dermoscopy through the University of Queensland in April 2017 and is currently doing a Professional Diploma of Skin Cancer Medicine through Bond University, Queensland.
