Patient Testimonials

Katie T.

I definitely recommend Dermatology Associates! There was no long wait like at most places. The waiting room and exam room were clean and comfortable, and the staff was super nice. I had to call multiple times after having trouble with the patient portal, and each time I called, they were nice and helpful. Katie made me feel so comfortable. She didn’t try to rush through my appointment to get to the next patient like in some places. She answered all my questions and made me feel so at ease, even with my terrible anxiety. Seriously can’t say enough good things about this place!

FAQ

Acne is primarily caused by a combination of factors, including excess oil production, clogged pores, bacteria, and inflammation. Treatment options for acne may include topical medications (such as benzoyl peroxide and retinoids), oral medications (such as antibiotics and hormonal therapies), and in-office procedures (such as chemical peels and laser therapy), tailored to each patient's specific acne severity and skin type.

Identifying the cause of a rash requires a comprehensive evaluation by a dermatologist, including a detailed medical history, physical examination, and possibly additional tests (such as skin biopsy or allergy testing). Common causes of rashes include allergic reactions, infections, skin conditions (such as eczema and psoriasis), and autoimmune diseases.

Over-the-counter wart removal products may be effective for some individuals, but they are not always successful in completely eliminating warts. Dermatologists offer more advanced wart removal techniques, such as cryotherapy, laser therapy, and prescription-strength medications, which are often more effective and have lower recurrence rates.

Eczema is a chronic inflammatory skin condition that cannot be cured, but it can be effectively managed with proper treatment and skincare strategies. Dermatologists work with patients to develop individualized eczema treatment plans aimed at controlling symptoms, reducing inflammation, and preventing flare-ups.

Psoriasis treatment options include topical medications (such as corticosteroids, calcineurin inhibitors, and vitamin D analogs), phototherapy (light therapy), oral medications (such as methotrexate and cyclosporine), and biologic therapies (such as TNF inhibitors and interleukin inhibitors). Treatment selection depends on the severity and location of psoriasis, as well as individual patient factors.

Autoimmune skin diseases, such as lupus erythematosus and dermatomyositis, are not contagious and cannot be transmitted from person to person. These conditions are caused by dysregulation of the immune system, leading to inflammation and damage to the skin, joints, and internal organs.

Skin allergy tests, such as patch testing and prick testing, are highly accurate in identifying allergens that may be triggering allergic reactions or exacerbating skin conditions. These tests involve exposing the skin to small amounts of suspected allergens and observing the body's reaction, helping dermatologists pinpoint specific triggers and develop personalized treatment plans.

Hair loss, or alopecia, can be treated depending on the underlying cause. Treatment options may include topical medications (such as minoxidil), oral medications (such as finasteride), steroid injections, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, and hair transplantation. Dermatologists evaluate each patient's hair loss pattern and medical history to determine the most appropriate treatment approach.

*While some nail disorders, such as fungal infections, may be preventable through good hygiene practices (such as keeping nails clean and dry), others may be influenced by genetic factors or underlying medical conditions. Dermatologists offer preventive measures and treatment options to improve nail health and prevent recurrent nail disorders.*

The frequency of skin cancer screening depends on individual risk factors, including personal and family history of skin cancer, history of sun exposure, and presence of moles or other risk factors. Dermatologists typically recommend annual skin exams for individuals at increased risk of skin cancer and regular self-examinations for early detection of suspicious lesions.
