It can be difficult to get an appointment with our medical director, and while we understand that it can be frustrating when he doesn’t have the space to see clients, it is important that current patients are afforded the opportunity to return to the same doctor. This can mean, unfortunately, that booking a consultation with Dr Tapan is difficult, but not impossible.
There are other options though: each of the doctors who work here at PHI Clinic have been hand-picked by Dr Tapan himself, and participate in training with him on a regular basis to keep general clinic practice consistent with his high standards.
Who should I see if I’m interested in:
Our nurses, Sarah Gaughan & Samantha Knuckey, are highly trained in reduction options for a variety of skin concerns, as are our other nurses and aesthetic therapists, but if you would prefer to see a doctor, Dr Ward and Dr Demosthenous have interests in dermatology and non-surgical facial rejuvenation, respectively.
Dr Ward is particularly interested in performing laser based treatments. For acne and burn scars, Dr Ward has been working closely with Dr Tapan Patel since the clinic opened to develop techniques that keep downtime to a minimum. Most of our clinicians can perform laser resurfacing.
All of our doctors and nurses are highly trained in delivering wrinkle injections, as well as other injectable treatments.
Non Surgical Lip/Nose/Chin Augmentation?
Any of our other doctors can perform dermal filler treatments, and regularly train with Doctor Tapan Patel to hone and enhance skills and knowledge. Our most recent training day covered a variety of injection techniques and how to get the most out of patient assessment. Volite treatments, an injectable moisturiser, are also performed by our Nurses, Sarah Gaughan & Samantha Knuckey.
Sweat Reduction And Redness Treatments?
All of our aestheticians and nurses are trained in using miraDry for sweat reduction, as well as multiple redness and rosacea treatment options.
Seeing A Female Doctor?
We understand that some of our patients may wish to see a female clinician, and for these patients we have our skilled injectable nurses.
Who can I see instead of Dr Tapan Patel?
