After completing her Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy at Queen's University Dr. Wismer practiced and taught at the University of Western School of physiotherapy. She lectured extensively during that time to physiotherapists of the Caribbean and was involved in clinical teaching and research.

Dr. Wismer graduated from McMaster University Medical School and went on to complete her Dermatology residency training at the University of Toronto in 1993. During her final year, she was chief dermatology resident. In addition to the four-year residency training, Dr. Wismer completed a research year as Fellow of the Dermatology Foundation.

Since starting dermatology practice in 1994, Dr. Wismer has been actively involved in clinical dermatology, teaching and research. She has lectured extensively to practicising physicians, and has been a passionate teacher of graduate and undergraduate medical students. She was voted Outstanding Clinical Mentor in 2001.

Dr. Wismer is currently the Head of the Division of Dermatology in the Department of Medicine at McMaster University. She sits on the Council of Medicine and is head of the Graduate and Undergraduate teaching at McMaster Medical School.

Dr. Wismer collaborates with other physicians in a clinic once weekly at McMaster University Health Science Centre in a tertiary care, teaching based dermatology clinic.

In 2002 Dr. Wismer opened the Ancaster Dermatology Centre, a beautiful, state of the art facility, offering ethical, safe, medical , surgical and cosmetic dermatology.

Ancaster Dermatology Centre is a modern, bright facility attended by dermatologists Dr. Judy Wismer, and her associate Dr. Maureen O'Malley.

Both dermatologists offer medical and surgical care for skin disease and in addition Dr. Judy Wismer offers consultation and expert care in cosmetic dermatology.

Our philosophy is first and foremost the safety and expert delivery of skin care. In an age where advances are made weekly, it is our responsibility to evaluate the safety and efficacy of treatment, and to measure real benefit for our patients. Newer technologies are offered only when they have proven benefits. Respect, dialogue and communication are what the patient should expect when they visit our office.

Ancaster Dermatology Centre works in conjunction with McMaster Medical School, local physicians, hospitals, and the Juravinski Cancer Centre in order to provide comprehensive medical care within the Hamilton, Ancaster, Niagara and Brantford communities.

The success of our practice is built upon the team we have built at Ancaster Dermatology, including nurses Kelly and Danielle, laser technician Laura, and office staff Amy, Leanne, and Cheryl. These fine individuals provide a cheerful, positive experience for those attending our centre, and are regularly involved in training and updating their skills

We have endeavored to create a facility of professionalism, care and compassion and to make a positive contribution within this community.
