What is a Dermatologist?

  • A Dermatologist is a physician who is trained to evaluate and manage pediatric and adult patients with benign and malignant disorders of the skin, hair, nails and adjacent mucous membranes. Dermatologists also manage cosmetic disorders of the skin, including hair loss, scars and the skin changes associated with aging.

Why Consider Dermatology?

  • There is a shortage
  • Many procedure opportunities (i.e. biopsies, suturing, Mohs surgery)
  • Few emergencies make for a manageable lifestyle
  • Skin diseases severely effect people's quality of life- you can make a difference!
