Dr. Derek To
Dr. Derek To was born and raised in the lower mainland and completed medical school at the University of British Columbia. He then travelled to Ottawa for his residency in dermatology. While in Ottawa, he was awarded The D.C. Montgomery Resident Award for his research endeavours. These research projects have successfully secured multiple research grants including the Richard J. MacKay Endowment fund and the Benefactor Life Member’s Research grant. He’s also trained with leaders in both medical and cosmetic dermatology in various cities in North America.
Upon finishing residency, he moved back home to BC and brought with him a wealth of experience. This has allowed him to be well versed in medical dermatology and cosmetic and surgical procedures. He has an interest in skin cancer screening.
Both him and his spouse, a family physician, are kept busy with a toddler at home. Any spare time that he has, he spends it playing golf. He does speak some Cantonese, and he is striving hard to learn more each day.
