Upon completing an undergraduate degree in math at Acadia University, Dr. Hollis obtained a degree in medicine at Dalhousie University. After practicing as a GP in New Brunswick, he returned to Dalhousie to complete a medical residency in surgery, specializing in plastic and reconstructive disciplines. Following an invitation from two Victoria Plastic Surgeons to join their thriving practice, Dr. Hollis moved with his family, including wife Jane and three children (which turned to four soon after) to Victoria, where he became an involved community member and avid golfer.
Decades of exposure to the many facets of esthetic medicine has enhanced Dr. Hollis’ ability to understand the level of physical and emotional care needed for each patient. The range of cosmetic concerns brought to him over the years is substantial and his unique background in both surgical and non-surgical treatments has given him the ability to offer comprehensive advice with clear objectivity. His primary work today is in the sphere of cosmetic esthetics, a field in which he excels.
In 1999 Dr. Hollis and his wife Jane created Derma Spa, Victoria’s premier Medical Esthetics Spa, where he is Medical Director and consultant, as well as treating physician.
