The main two reasons anyone goes to a dermatologist are really simple - to solve a problem or to look better. Often they are one and the same.
Concerns can range from a bothersome red rash to a more serious medical problem such as skin cancer or psoriasis to the Baby-Boomer's lament, "I look so much older than I feel!" and "I'm tired of everyone asking me if I'm getting enough rest."
Understanding your Choices There are many ways to address your concerns. So many, in fact, that choices can be overwhelming. What's really important is for you to have an understanding of those choices.
We'll do our best to help guide you through the solutions to whatever your issues might be - medical, cosmetic or all the in-betweens. We provide the latest technology, treatment procedures, skin lasers, wrinkle fixers and medical solutions. Our hand-picked skin care products are carefully chosen to provide the most beneficial effects possible for your skin. You and your skin deserve nothing less than the best.
Picking the "Home Run"As your doctor, I feel it's my professional responsibility to make sure the treatments I offer you are the best available. I feel it's important to offer what I KNOW will work. There are many treatments openly touted as miracle fixes which actually are still in their infancy stages of development and offer only modest improvement. For this reason you may find I don't offer every single procedure you hear or read about.
Fortunately we have a vast array of proven technologies to choose from.
It's my hope that the many years of training and experience I've had will help you derive precisely the results you are looking for. My staff and I deeply appreciate and value the trust and confidence of our patients and look forward to working with you.
