Information on skin surgeries and procedures at Oxona, from our team of dermatology-specialist GPs
At Oxona, we never presume or assume what a patient knows or doesn’t know. Even before you book your first appointment, we work hard to make you feel well-informed and assured about making a decision to come to Oxona. We try to make our clinics as relaxed as possible because we know that it can be an anxious experience to discuss medical – and dermatological conditions – and we want you to feel at ease.
GP specialists in dermatology
We hope that through this support, welcoming atmosphere and understanding team throughout the appointment and the pre-procedure stages, that on the day of your operation, you will feel comfortable with the clinic and our staff.
When it comes to aftercare, we will make sure you understand what happens immediately after your procedure (ie can you drive, go back to work, etc?), any follow up appointments and looking after yourself during recovery.
How it works
From the moment you book your appointment to post-treatment care, we’re here to support you.
- Place booking
Book your appointment online, with no need for a referral. Payment is arranged at the point of booking, and you’ll be asked to complete a pre-consultation questionnaire.
Your appointment will give you the time you need to discuss your problem. Our specialists will make sure you are truly heard, then answer your questions with understanding, offering impartial advice. Before moving forward, you’ll feel equipped to make an informed decision.
- Treatment plan
We don’t offer ‘off-the-shelf’ packages. Instead, we build treatment plans based on you as an individual, around your conditions and medical history. We will explore all available care pathways, taking into account any anxieties and respecting your decisions.
- Check in
We appreciate that discussing symptoms can be uncomfortable for some people, and that you may feel anxious about your appointment. But as soon as you check in for your appointment, our relaxed atmosphere – with welcoming surroundings and friendly staff – will soon put you at ease.
What our patients think
I was recommended to come here by my GP. Dr Anderson and her assistant Jasmine make a wonderful team. They both instantly put me at ease and carried out the procedure with great care, professionalism and reassurance, as I was nervous. I would not hesitate to return for any further skin issue and I highly recommend Oxona Healthcare.
- Laura, Oxford
I had a sebaceous cyst removed from my neck. Dr Joshi and Jasmine were professional, efficient and friendly throughout and I felt in very safe hands. Very pleased with the outcome and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend for any similar procedure.
- Anne, Oxford
Dr Anderson and Jasmine were brilliant, friendly, helpful and professional. I had a sebaceous cyst removed and I am very pleased with the result. Very impressed by the care taken and the time scale everything was completed, I would definitely recommend.
Frequently asked questions
Can I claim for my appointment on insurance?
You need to speak to your insurer prior to your appointment. Some insurers will reimburse you for the appointment, but you will need to present any documentation at the time of your appointment for the doctor to sign. Please note that all our doctors are registered with the GMC on the GP register not the consultant register. Please ensure you make this clear to your insurers at the outset.
Why is cyst removal more expensive than mole or blemish removal?
Cyst removal can be more complex as usually they are stuck down to underlying tissue. The cyst has to be teased away very carefully to ensure the entire cyst is removed and so that you get the best possible cosmetic result.
Do you treat children under the age of 18?
Yes, we can treat under 18s at both our clinics. However, for more invasive procedures or those requiring a certain level of pain tolerance, such as verruca freezing, we would recommend only over 10s.
