Marewa Surgery is a dedicated skin cancer and primary care dermatology clinic located in sunny Napier.

We specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of skin cancers including melanoma, and also in GP dermatology. We have proudly been offering this service to the people of Napier and the wider Hawke’s Bay region for over 25 years.

We have three doctors to help with any skin related concerns:

  • Dr Barry Leslie - Skin Cancer Doctor
  • Dr Marcia Sonneveld - GP Dermatology & Skin Cancer Doctor
  • Dr Anthony Fraser - Skin Cancer Doctor
  • ( Dr Ruud Horlings - Dermatologist - Note: Dr Horlings has now travelled back to the Netherlands as of March 2022 )

We are happy to see new patients either with or without a GP referral. Feel free to call with any enquiries or to book an appointment when suits. 

Marewa Surgery is an Affiliated Provider to Southern Cross Health Society and an NIB First Choice Provider

If melanoma is recognised and treated early enough, it is almost always curable.
