What is a dermatologist?
A dermatologist is a physician who is certified by the American Board of Dermatology (ABD) to treat conditions and diseases of the skin, hair, and nails.
What conditions can dermatology treat?
Dermatology can treat a wide range of conditions affecting the skin, hair and nails, including, but not limited to, acne, psoriasis, rosacea, skin cancer, wrinkles, sun spots, pigmentation problems, warts, rashes, bacterial or fungal skin and nail infections, spider and varicose veins, and sun damage. If you have a skin-related problem, a dermatologist is the best choice for lasting, effective treatment.
How much does dermatologic treatment cost?
As with any medical treatment, costs vary, depending upon the scale and severity of the condition, as well as the treatment method. However, many medical dermatology treatments may be covered under insurance plans. Our trusted staff will help ensure you receive maximum benefits. For treatments not covered, we also offer a range of convenient payment options.
