Please let us know if you are suffering from any of these dermatological problems and we can discuss the possible therapies available to you.
Dermatology Skin Checks
Our primary care providers also perform annual skin tests, which can help detect skin cancer or other serious skin problems before they progress. By performing an annual skin test, we can monitor the size, shape and color of any moles or birthmarks to ensure they are not changing, which can help prevent and reduce your risk of developing skin cancer.
Minor Dermatological Procedures
Our primary care providers at are trained in performing minor dermatological procedures such as those required to remove moles, warts, skin tags or other skin lesions. We can also use cryotherapy (liquid nitrogen), which is a procedure that freezes the affected tissue and destroys the dangerous or unnecessary cells. For the convenience of our patients, these simple dermatological procedures can be performed right in our office in a minor procedure room.
For more serious conditions, our physicians can refer you to a dermatologist who has had additional training in dermatology.
