Meet Dr. Rohan Bissoondath
Preventous Medical Director
“We want every patient to experience first class care ~ from a warm initial phone call to a thorough treatment experience and at every step along the way. Preventous Cosmetic Medicine is about consistency, excellence and results.”
Dr. Rohan Bissoondath is passionate about all facets of medicine. His extensive resume will take you on an exotic vacation to the Caribbean before returning you to Canadian soil and “cool” Calgary winters. Born and raised in Calgary, AB, Rohan pursued his medical education and early training abroad. Having completed his Bachelor of Science at the University of Calgary, young Rohan—a lover of new adventures and exciting challenges—packed up and headed for warmer waters and white sandy shores.
Rohan received his medical degree from the University of the West Indies and participated in subsequent medical training throughout the Caribbean. His time at the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine, Trinidad and Tobago and Princess Margaret Hospital, Nassau, Bahamas allowed Rohan to experience varying aspects of medicine helping prepare him for his future endeavors in preventive medicine. Rohan returned to Calgary in 2002 and, after unpacking his winter coat, began his residency in Family Medicine at, his Alma Mater, the University of Calgary. A mere two years later, Rohan completed his residency and was eager to bring his unique outlook on patient care to the city of Calgary.
Fast forward to the present and witness the beauty that is Preventous Collaborative Health. Having experienced the inconsistencies in patient care and a greater focus on reactionary medicine in today’s world, Rohan knew he wanted to create an integrated healthcare centre primarily focused on the idea and application of preventive medicine. The preventive (and proven) approach to integrated healthcare naturally progressed into a preventive approach to aesthetic medicine and thus became Preventous Cosmetic Medicine.
Rohan’s passion for health and wellness is what drives Preventous Cosmetic; to Rohan, healthy skin is beautiful skin. Rohan was quickly drawn to aesthetic medicine for its artistry and positive emotional benefits. Known for his relentless pursuit of mastery (and a passion for learning new things), Rohan sought countless opportunities for training and study to acquire an extensive understanding of facial anatomy – which has been considered his personal secret to successful facial rejuvenation.
After years of practical experience, Rohan has advanced the field of cosmetic practice in Calgary. His strong focus on skin health and preventive medicine is changing the way his patients see themselves. Through his command of the aging face and dedication to patient experience, Rohan is committed to providing an altogether unique and artistic approach to cosmetic treatment.
When asked to describe the Preventous difference Rohan had this to say:
“At Preventous, we look at medicine differently. We want to create an elegant aging experience.”
Elegant aging – who doesn’t want that?

Meet Dr. Aaron Woodard
