Your skin is your body's largest organ, and it working nonstop to take care of you. The skin protects other organs, regulates body temperature, and reflects your overall health. For all it does for you, your skin deserves the expert care of a medical specialist.
Our goal is to provide only the highest quality, compassionate care for patients requiring dermatologic care. The promotion of patient comfort and quality care is the objective of our policies and procedures. Many of the rules and policies of the practice are intended to build patient confidence in the physician and the staff. A strong doctor-patient relationship is necessary if the patient is to receive the full benefit of the physician's services. The patient must feel that he/she can talk freely to the doctor and staff, that the doctor and staff are knowledgeable and conscientious, and that the practice is well managed. Only if these attitudes prevail will the patient be likely to take the doctor's advice and do his/her share in following through with treatment. The staff plays an important role in building this confidence by being cheerful, friendly, tactful, neat, industrious, and efficient.
