What makes your practice special when compared with others in the area?
Offices: Our office is designed to accommodate both children and adults. All of our exam rooms open to the outside of the building, which provides a more relaxed atmosphere, especially helpful in dealing with our pediatric and more apprehensive patients. Covered parking is available for your convenience. Doctors: Our dermatologists are engaged in the clinical practice of adult and pediatric dermatology with an emphasis on dermatologic surgery and cosmetic procedures. We offer the highest quality of dermatologic care available, utilizing state of the art equipment and the most up to date dermatologic procedures and medications. Staff: Our staff provides personalized care with an emphasis on patient education and satisfaction. We are in the business of treating people not just skin. Most of the surgical procedures we provide are as painless as possible due to our utilization of topical anesthesia if at all possible.
