Dr. Fisher has been my dermatologist since I had cancer 12 years ago. What knowledge and what kindness! She explains everything in details, using at times analogies and drawings to educate patients. This is going beyond the call of duty to help patients understand their conditions. She is a great professor with considerable expertise in her field. I highly recommend her as a dermatologist and as a human being.

The Kingsway Dermatology team are excellent and very professional. I have been going here for some years now to address all of my skin care issues. I am especially pleased with the results from Halo treatments with Katie. All the staff and both medical and cosmetic are exceptional. Highly recommended.

My experience at Kingsway has been nothing but short of amazing. The clinic itself is extremely clean and all the staff members are very professional and helpful. Emily has been treating my skin since April. I always look forward to seeing her as she is very knowledgeable, kind and gentle with my treatments. She always ensures that I am comfortable and always checks to see if I am happy with my current results. I feel so confident coming here that my skin goals will be achieved with the understanding and caring that Emily always provides!

I went in to Kingsway Dermatology for a consultation and I was so happy with the appointment. Nadia was my consultant and she was so helpful and positive. She answered all my questions before I even asked them and she really listened to all my concerns. I felt like she really just got it. Probably one of the best consultations I've had. I really recommend talking to her for your consultation.The clinic is very clean and the staff was very friendly. The location is very easy to get to. There's also paid parking above ground and underground.

I cannot say enough good things about Kingsway Dermatology and Dr Ruppel. The results I get from my treatments with Dr R are second-to-none and she always has a way of making me feel incredibly at ease and comfortable. She’s a wonderful clinician and has an absolutely lovely bedside manner. She will go the extra mile to make sure you don’t feel rushed, that you feel welcome and that you’re more than just a number. I would recommend her twenty times over and I’m just thrilled that I found such a caring knowledgeable dermatologist. The clinic staff are also lovely, friendly and welcoming. Highly, highly recommend.
