Dr. Jorge Lopez Granja

Let me introduce myself to you. I’m Dr. Lopez, the Dermatologist at Belize Medical Associates in Belize City. In my clinic, we are committed to delivering ethical, assertive and holistic advice to treat your skin condition. This is always based on the most solid data in the field of dermatology as well as a thorough medical evaluation. I think it is very important to understand what a patient wants before commencing any treatment. I assess the condition, and then make my recommendations. I make sure to talk to the patient about the potential risks and side effects of any treatment I suggest and make sure that we are in agreement that it is the best approach. To me, the care of the patient is not only while they are present in my clinic. I want to be sure to address any doubts or questions both before and after a procedure, and to always be ready and available for followup. As you’ll see on my website, we offer a wide variety of services including:  general  consultation of skin, hair and nail conditions in children and adults, skin surgery (cysts, moles, etc), skin cancer surgery, skin biopsy, nail lifting, sclerotherapy (vein treatments), Botox®/Xeomin® injections for wrinkle abatement and  photoepilation (permanent hair removal with IPL) among others. I believe my qualifications as a physician, dermatology specialist and skin surgeon, combined with my commitment to ethics, has helped me build a solid medical practice with many satisfied patients.
