“My goal is to ensure Derick Dermatology provides the best possible patient experience. We will succeed by staying true to our founding principles of quality and convenience.

We will ensure quality by hiring world-class providers, supporting them with a highly-trained and conscientious staff, and giving them access to cutting edge technology in state-of-the-art facilities.

We will provide convenience to patients by offering flexible hours, including early morning, evening and weekend appointments. In addition, we will do our best to make appointments available to our patients within a few days of their request. We will respect our patients’ time by striving to run on-schedule in the clinic, thereby minimizing time in the waiting room.

In all areas of our practice we will pursue continual improvement. At Derick Dermatology, the patient comes first.”
