If you require a procedure after an examination one can be scheduled for you. NOTE: Insurers normally cover the cost(s) for the examination & procedure – some insurers do not cover checks if a procedure is not needed - it is recommended that you check your policy.

Recently. I came across Dr Paul while attending Professional Certificate course in skin cancer at the University of Queensland. I was very impressed with his teachings from which we all benefited. His presentations were interesting, easy to understand and up to date… I have spoken to many of the attending doctors and found them to be full of praise and grateful to Dr Paul. I have put in practice some of the skin flaps he taught with great success.

We need Dr. Sharad Paul. In the same sense as the world needs historians-philosophers-sociologists for the history of mankind the world needs a physician-philosopher-literate for narrative medicine. Only a distinguished physician such as Dr. Sharad Paul with a sense for “stories” understands the importance of narrative medicine in improving patient-physician communication. He is the Sigmund Freud and Arthur Schnitzler of our times. I applaud everybody who supports him personally.

Dr. Sharad Paul has developed an impressive reputation as a leader in the field of dermatology, dermato-oncology and skin cancer surgery, and is regarded as unique in the field of medicine because he has mastered the ability to manage so many disciplines. He has been singled out to present his work at many critical conferences all over the world attended by leading authorities in the field. I recently invited him to chair the surgical workshops at the World Dermoscopy Congress in Vienna. He is a remarkably multitalented person. He teaches creative writing to disadvantaged children, he was appointed into the National Commission of UNESCO as literacy adviser, and he is the author of several novels…
