Welcome to Rao Dermatology, where as a new patient you will soon be evaluated for your skin-related problem, and a personalized management plan will be created and implemented for you.  Our goal is to help you achieve effective and timely improvement in a safe manner.

In these uncertain times of the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing is key to maintaining health and safety.  Although our office is presently closed to limit contact with others, we are pleased to offer you our novel Remote Dermatology Service, reducing the need to visit us in-person. To qualify you must have a doctor’s referral already sent to us.  If this is not the case, please ask your doctor to fax in a referral to: 780-437-2247.

If you already have a doctor’s referral pending, please fill out the secure form below.  You will be contacted shortly by the Rao Dermatology Team.  Based on our assessment of what you provide to us, we will arrange for one of the following:

  • a remote session with you, or
  • a face-to-face session with you

We are continuing to monitor the situation, and are taking all necessary precautions to do our part to limit the spread of COVID-19.  We thank you for your patience.  Be safe and healthy.
