Dermago was imagined and founded by Dr. Marc-André Doré and Dr. Émilie Bourgeault, two dermatologists looking to improve access to care for Canadian patients. Supported by a team of dermatologists, physician assistants and specialized nurse practitioners, the service is now available across Canada.
