Straddling both Kane and Cook counties, in the northern part of the state of Illinois, is the up and coming city of Elgin. The profile of its high school, Elgin High school’s history, boasts five admirals, a Nobel, Tony and Pulitzer Prize winner, and the founder of America’s first planetarium, among its prestigious alumni. Equally prestigious is one of its residents, one of the branch offices of Derick Dermatology, an acclaimed, full service, state-of-the-art dermatology practice, providing a wide range of services to all of its patients. This bustling metropolis was the ideal location for one of Derick Dermatology’s full-service dermatology offices.
The Elgin office, like all of the other Derick Dermatology locations across Illinois, goes the extra mile for its patients. Not only are their doctors required to be board certified as dermatologists, they must also be credentialed as board certified within their individual specialties i.e. pediatric dermatologist, Mohs surgeon, etc.
This process ensures that the patients of Derick Dermatology receive the finest, caring, quality, cutting-edge treatments available anywhere in the country. The glowing, positive reviews of their many satisfied patients are a direct testament to their proven level of professionalism.
Elgin is a modern, one-stop dermatology center. They are equipped to handle the entire gamut of dermatological needs involving, not only skin-related issues, such as acne scars, but additional problems concerning both the nails and hair as well.
Being diagnosed with skin cancer is a scary proposition but the Elgin office is there to help. In addition to general dermatology and other specialty practices, the office is staffed with a board certified dermatologist whose practice involves Mohs surgery, a type of surgery employed to treat skin cancer. The process may involve both initial and reconstructive procedures. Their commitment to on-going education ensures that the most current methods are used to minimize patient risk while it maximizes patient results, creating an unbeatable combination.
Not all patients choose the Elgin Derick Dermatology office to treat existing, active diseases. The results of acne can be a problem at any age. Acne scars, sometimes acquired during childhood and early adulthood, can impact more than just the physical appearance of a patient. Self-confidence and self-esteem can suffer as well but the board certified cosmetic dermatologists at Derick offer a variety of tried and tested acne treatment solutions. They have access to state-of-the-art lasers which can help reduce the appearance of acne scars and other skin-related injuries. Special lotions, creams and other topically applied solutions may also be used to mitigate the effects of acne.
As stressful as a visit to a doctor can be for an adult, it can be even more stressful for a child. The strange people and even more foreboding environment can be especially traumatic for a younger patient. The Elgin office of Derick Dermatology understands this and has another board certified dermatologist, a pediatric dermatologist, on staff, specialty trained to treat these smaller, more impressionable patients.
As Elgin grows so will its Derick Dermatology office. It is and will continue to be a caring restful haven and preferred destination for all patients with dermatologic problems. It is looking confidently forward to the future and the future of Elgin, IL.
