Medical dermatology for adults and children

Our board certified dermatologists have undergone extensive training and offer treatment for a wide range of medical dermatology conditions.

Dermatologists are physicians trained in the medical, surgical, and cosmetic care of the skin. To become a dermatologist, physicians must spend an additional year of internship in general medicine, and then another three years training in the specialty of dermatology after they complete medical school. This training includes medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology.

All dermatologists can treat patients of any age, from the very young to the very old, although some dermatologists do have an additional expertise in particular areas, such as pediatric dermatology, dermatologic surgery, laser or cosmetic dermatology. In general, skin conditions can be grouped into those primarily seen in the pediatric age group, and those primarily seen in the adult age group. Dermatologists are also trained in the proper care and treatment of problems associated with hair and nails. We also regularly perform full-body mole checks on patients of all ages who request them.
