We offer a comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of the following medical and surgical skin conditions:

 

  • SKIN CANCERS & PRE-CANCERS:  Skin cancer is a condition where one type of cell grows uncontrolled in a disorganized fashion, disrupting and replacing normal tissues and their functions.  There are three main forms of skin cancer -- Basal Cell Carcinoma, Squamous Cell Carcinoma and Melanoma. The first two are curable. Melanoma is curable if detected early, but can be fatal if it spreads. Moles that have irregular borders, varied colors, and recent enlargement should be examined by a dermatologist. 

  • MOLES: Mole screenings are critical for early detection of skin cancer and other conditions.  It is a quick, painless procedure where the provider fully inspects the skin for suspicious growths.  

  • PSORIASIS: Psoriasis is a chronic skin disease which presents itself as thickened, red areas of skin covered with silvery scales. It can occur in concentrated areas or all over the body and may affect joints, nails, and mucous membranes. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, two out of every hundred people have psoriasis (4-5 million people) and 150,000 new cases occur each year.

  • ACNE:  Acne can occur in any age group. It occurs when pores become clogged, resulting in blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, and cysts or nodules. These can occur anywhere on the body, including the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders and upper arms. Early treatment of acne is critical to prevent long term scarring.

  • WARTS: Warts are raised, rough bumps that are usually flesh-colored and can occur in multiple areas of the body. Warts are caused by the papilloma virus. There are various treatments of warts including freezing (liquid nitrogen therapy) and application of topical substances.

  • ROSACEA: Rosacea causes redness and bumps on the face that often looks like acne. A person who has rosacea may think they suddenly have a tendency to flush or blush easily. This blushing may turn into persistent redness in the center of the face. As rosacea intensifies, small blood vessels and small pimples appear around the reddened area which may need to be treated with lasers.
