Our board-certified dermatologists routinely see challenging and complex cases that keep us at the forefront of our industry. We continually search for and develop the latest techniques and technologies to help keep your skin healthy, vibrant, and youthful-looking.

Compassionate Medical Dermatology Care

While some dermatology symptoms are merely annoying, others are uncomfortable and disruptive to our daily lives and overall well-being. Our dermatologists understand the science behind a comprehensive range of skin, hair, and nail conditions, but we also recognize the distress and anxiety many of these conditions can cause. Even when they’re clearly the right course of action, some medical dermatology procedures can still lead to a certain amount of apprehension. Our dermatologists can put you at ease, while also providing an accurate diagnosis and treatment recommendation for all your medical dermatology care needs.

Medical Dermatology for Skin Conditions

Whether it’s a rash, skin sores, discoloration, or chronic itchiness, there are several symptoms and skin conditions that can prompt a visit to our dermatology clinic. Likewise, the underlying condition could be acne, dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema, rosacea, or some other less common skin condition. Get a diagnosis and treatment recommendations for whatever medical dermatology condition you may be struggling with.


Skin Growths

Not sure what’s an innocent mole, what’s a harmless age spot, and what’s a sign of something more troublesome? You’re not alone. If you’ve noticed a new skin growth or if it has been a while since you’ve had a skin exam, don’t wait to get checked out. Whether you’re worrying about nothing or delaying much-needed treatment, you only stand to regret it when you avoid seeing a dermatologist. Skin growths that appear in unusual colors or shapes could be a sign of skin cancer.


Skin Infections

Skin infections resulting from open wounds or other causes are another reason to see a dermatologist. Sometimes, a rash isn’t a skin condition, but a symptom of a larger infection. Shingles, for example, is the adult form of chickenpox and can present as a serious skin rash that can be diagnosed and treated by our dermatology team.


Hair and Nail Conditions

In addition to the skin, dermatology also involves treating conditions that affect the hair and nails. Not all hair treatments are cosmetic in nature. When caused by an underlying medical condition, hair loss restoration treatments are usually classified as medical procedures, and our dermatology team can get to the root of the problem.

Along with skin infections, fungal nail infections are very common and may need to be diagnosed and treated with prescription anti-fungal medications. Fungal nail infections that do not go away may need more advanced treatment, like temporary or lasting nail removal.
