A practicing Dermatologist for over 25 years, Dr. Garnis-Jones’ commitment to dermatology has gained her an impressive knowledge of the problems that affect our skin and the expertise in innovative non-invasive techniques to regenerate age-related skin concerns.
Trained at McGill University, Dr. Garnis-Jones has since been practicing across North America with special interest in skin cancer and psoriasis. She has extensive training in the treatment and presentation of skin cancer and was director of the malignant melanoma research laboratory in Ottawa and Vancouver. Dr. Garnis-Jones has also worked in Boston, and was recognized as an international leader in her field by her election to the International Who’s Who. Later on, her commitment to skin research continued as director of the Niagara psoriasis unit, providing the only narrow-band phototherapy for psoriasis in all of southern Ontario. In addition, she was president of the North America Society of Psychocutaneous Medicine and a clinical assistant professor at McMaster University in medicine.
Recently, Dr. Garnis-Jones visited the African country Rwanda and the Philippines on humanitarian missions to educate and offer assistance to low funded medical physicians and orphanages in threatened areas. Her mission to help all those in need extends beyond her humanitarian work and can be felt in how she approaches dermatological medicine. When she is not seeing patients in Maple Ridge, BC where she is currently located, she works as a part-time clinical professor for UBC and enjoys spending time with her 2-year-old granddaughter.
