Compassionate Medical Dermatology Care

While some dermatology symptoms are merely annoying, others are truly disruptive to our daily lives and overall well-being. Our dermatologists understand the medicine and technology for 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 it’s clearly the right course of action, some skin treatment 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.

 

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 diagnose 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’s 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 the dermatologist.

 

Skin Infections

Skin or nail infections are another reason to see a dermatologist. Along with skin infections resulting from open wounds, fungal nail infections are very common and may need to be diagnosed and treated with prescription anti-fungal medications. 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 a dermatologist.

 

Hair and Nail Conditions

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. (Some insurance carriers may cover hair loss treatments in other cases as well.) An in-grown hair is another condition for which you may need to see a dermatologist. Fungal nail infections that do not go away may need more advanced treatment, like temporary or permanent nail removal.
