SunDoctors Ballina Skin Cancer Clinic

We offer the highest certainty around the detection and treatment of skin cancer. We stop at nothing to give our patients the best possible care and outcomes at every point in their journey.

Our doctors are highly trained and our results are processed in our own specialist pathology laboratory – which is the biggest in Australia and does nothing but skin cancer. The doctors at our Clinic have personally managed hundreds of melanomas and thousands of non-melanoma skin cancers.

Our 3 doctors are Specialist GPs. They are specialist GPs but require no referrals.

Our Northern Rivers clinic and labs use state-of-the-art technology to improve the patient journey and enable the highest standards of medical care.

Only a short drive from Lennox Head, our Ballina SunDoctors Skin Cancer Clinic provides care for patients covering the whole of the Northern Rivers region & surrounds.
