Our Services

Immigration

Immigration

The Doctors Bayfair is approved by Immigration New Zealand to complete medicals for New Zealand visa applications. We are an eMedical enabled clinic. 

Please download the Immigration Email Pack. Complete and email back to us, along with a coloured copy of your passport and we will contact you with an appointment (please allow up to 7 business days for a response).

Immigration consults are by appointment only.

Immigration NZ require the removal of ALL clothing down to your underwear, please ensure you wear suitable underwear for the full body examination and advise staff if you would like a chaperone present during any stage of the medical process.

Skin Checks

We offer Comprehensive skin checks by our accredited skin cancer doctor to both enrolled and  non-enrolled patients, at reasonable rates. Take the first step to end skin cancer and Book in today!

 A skin check from top-to-toe can take from 15-30 minutes.

Make sure you tell the doctor of any spots or moles that are NEW, SORE, CHANGING or UNUSUAL.

Most people have made their moles by the time they are 40.  A new  mole after this age is more suspicious and the older you are the more suspicious a new mole is.

A dermatoscope will be used to check your lesions. This  specialist scope magnifies and enhances the lesions identified. Some lesions can be better felt than seen and some touching of the skin will be involved. 

If required , a close up photograph of a spot or mole will be taken, by doing this a mole can be monitored over time for any changes in appearance.

Early skin changes can instantly be treated by freezing them (cryotherapy with liquid nitrogen)  (this will incur an additional charge)

To test a spot or a mole the doctor will either take a small biopsy (sample) or completely excise (cut out) the spot of concern. 
After removal the lesion will be sent to the pathology lab for testing.  This will confirm the diagnosis and—in consultation with you—the best course of action with be discussed
