Medical Dermatology:  Referrals are required in order to obtain an appointment with Dr. Liao to discuss your area of concern.  Please get your family doctor to refer you to our office and we will set up an appointment directly with your doctor’s office.  If you do not have a family doctor, you may also be seen at a Medicentre to ask for a referral.

A referral is also required if you have not seen Dr. Liao in over 6 months – unless otherwise stated by Dr. Liao during a previous appointment. 

**Please be advised that Dr. Liao will only deal with 1 problem (usually the problem that your doctor refers you for) at a time and you are more than welcome to schedule another appointment to discuss other issues.**

Cosmetic Dermatology: Non-insured services are cosmetic surgeries and the consultations do not require any referral.  Please call the office at 780-482-1548 to talk to one of our staff members as all consultations are by appointment only.
