Dr Pam is a member of the Canadian and Ontario Medical Associations(CMA, OMA), the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario(CPSO), the Canadian Association of Aesthetic Medicine(CAAM) and the Canadian Board of Aesthetic Medicine(CBAM).
My passion for Aesthetics Medicine comes from my desire to promote a natural and refreshed look for my patients while reinforcing basic skin health principles. As I became more curious about my own skin, I began to research on various solutions to preserve the integrity and healthy appearance of my skin. My researches led to a new passion and appreciation for skin care.
At Glowderma, my goal is work with patients of all skins types and to offer efficient therapies in order to reflect their existing beauty.
I am here to support you with your skin journey, no matter where you are starting.
