Meet the doctors

Dr. Steve Karagiannis
Bayside, North Strand, Raheny, Rathmines

Dr. Steve Karagiannis is the founder and owner of SkinCheck Ireland. He 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 skin cancer, then you should be seen, diagnosed and treated in the community by a doctor trained in the use of Dermoscopy as soon as possible. He divides his time between running his various SkinCheck Clinics, working as a GP in Dublin and returning to Australia on a regular basis for further training in early skin cancer detection in order to maintain and improve his clinical skills. In December 2015 he completed training in Dermoscopy and Malignant Melanoma detection in the USA which was run by the well known Mayo Clinic.

Dr Steve has a Professional Diploma of Dermoscopy obtained through the University of Queensland as well as Professional Diploma of Skin Cancer Medicine obtained through The Bond University, Queensland. In February 2019 he completed further training in Advanced Skin Cancer Medicine in Melbourne.
