Generations of Quality Care Under One Roof

Dermatology is the study of the skin, hair, and nails. Knowing that the skin is often the window to the inside of the body, dermatology is not only the diagnosis and treatment of small and bothersome skin maladies, but, in addition, is the science and knowledge of different organ systems and how their proper function is related to the skin, hair, and nails.

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. A Dermatologist has had additional training and experience in the following:

  • The diagnosis and treatment of skin cancers, melanomas, moles, and other tumors of the skin.
  • The management of contact dermatitis and other inflammatory skin disorders.
  • The recognition of the skin manifestations of systemic and infectious diseases.
  • Dermatopathology (the microscopic diagnosis of diseases of the skin).
  • Surgical techniques used in dermatology.

To be certified as a dermatologist, a physician must have had at least four years of post graduate training accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. The first broadbased general clinical year is followed by three years of intensive training in dermatology including dermatopathology and dermatologic surgery. In addition to the successful completion of the four years of required training, the certification process includes a comprehensive examination administered by the American Board of Dermatology. With this background and knowledge, dermatologists are singularly qualified to diagnose and treat a wide variety of dermatologic conditions as well as benign and malignant skin tumors.
