Mackay Allergy Services - Smart Scan Skin Cancer Clinic & Lloyds Northside Clinic

Permanent Resident Medical Allergy Service Run By A Local Mackay Doctor

In 2014, Dr Marius Botha obtained a Graduate Certificate in Allergic Diseases from the University of Western Sydney. Being a resident general practitioner in Mackay for more than 4 years, he realised that Mackay had a big need for a specialised allergy service.

Dr Botha provides comprehensive allergy services for patients of the Mackay district. The service was developed to investigate and manage a comprehensive range of allergic diseases. As a member of ASCIA (Australian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy), Dr Botha strives to keep up-to-date with the latest evidence based diagnostic and management guidelines for allergic diseases.
