My car broke down as I was coming to my appointment with Dr. Karen Stapleton. I was devastated as I had been waiting months for it and knew I would miss it. Not only were the team and staff totally understanding and supportive. Dr Stapleton took some time out from her busy day to see me, giving me her full attention and explaining things to me thoroughly. Something I have not had from other dermatologists. She is very approachable, professional and knowledgeable. I highly highly recommend her and the team at Drummoyne Dermatology.

Two of my teenagers have been under the care of Dr Stapleton who I have found to be knowledgeable and highly proficient. She is fantastic with teenagers, listens to their concerns and clearly explains procedures. I would not hesitate to recommend her to family and friends.
