A dermatologist is a physician, who has specialized in the treatment of skin conditions and diseases. Dermatologists are certified by the American Board of Dermatology after extensive education and medical residency. They treat everything, from minor skin rashes, like hives, to chronic skin diseases, such as eczema or psoriasis.
Dermatologists are good diagnosticians and can distinguish between conditions that share similar symptoms. Today, many dermatologists are also well-versed in cosmetic dermatology procedures to help improve the appearance of skin as we age. Have questions? We'd love to schedule a consultation - call us.
