Falls Dermatology is located in the heart of Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada. It is our goal to treat patients with the utmost respect while providing quality medical care. We emphasize forming timeliness and personal relationships with our patients, and our friendly staff will make you feel truly welcome. We strive to understand every patient’s dermatologic concerns and offer medically proven, individualized treatment options that our patients can be comfortable with.

When you visit the centre, you will discover a friendly, competent staff that is dedicated to you and will ensure your quality of care. We are committed to excellence, thoughtfulness, compassion, and attention to detail for all of our patients.



We are frequently involved in continual medical education both as learners and teachers to provide the most current and effective treatments to our patients.


We provide care in an honest, confidential manner. We believe that in some cases, less is more and occasionally, no treatment may actually be the best option.


We understand our patients’ motivations, goals, sensitivities, and budget, thus we aim to provide personalized solutions for our patients while keeping these variables in mind.
