The Frankston and Mornington clinics have fully equiped operating theatres, skin check rooms and use the latest MoleMax technology in the mole mapping rooms.

They currently perform around 18,000 skin checks, 5000 mole maps and nearly 7000 surgical procedures per year.

They find on average one melanoma case per business day and around 30 minor skin cancers per business day.

In 2017, they found 463 melanomas of which 97% were less than 1mm deep.

All their doctors are members of the Skin Cancer College of Australasia and have achieved higher qualifications in skin cancer medicine and surgery.

Many of the skin cancer nurses hold certificates in Skin Cancer Medicine or Dermoscopy  through the Skin Cancer College of Australasia or are currently studied towards this qualification.
