About Derick Dermatology in Skokie, IL
Honoring time-honored Midwestern traditions, Skokie welcomes diversity, innovation, and creativity. In the mid-1800s, a town began to emerge from an unsettled territory into a fashionable city of about 68,000 residents just north of Chicago. The inviting suburb retains the historical charm created by leaders who envisioned a prosperous community that thrives and flourishes. An upscale office of Derick Dermatology at 5250 Old Orchard Road offers easy access to world-class care for skin, nails, and hair. The office caters to the needs of adult, pediatric and senior clients with care and understanding.
TAKING PRIDE IN CULTURAL AND ARTISTIC DIVERSITY
Just eight minutes away in downtown Skokie, the community invites visitors and residents to participate in enriching and enjoyable activities. Art murals, sculptures, and dining provide a pleasant atmosphere in an inclusive and diverse community. Every May, the Skokie Park District welcomes about 25,000 visitors to the Festival of Cultures. Ethnic music, dance, games, and food representing the dozens of cultures that thrive in the city provide a unique experience. The District protects 240 acres of parkland that complements the area. In addition, it offers recreational opportunities and preserves the historical sites that abound in the community.
SCHOENING’S BLACKSMITH SHOP
A public demand for repairs on buggies and wagons led Fred Schoening to establish his blacksmith shop at 7880 Lincoln Avenue. A 1914 invoice to Dr. A. Louise Klehm lists 17 material and labor charges for $28.05. The daughter of one of Skokie’s leading families, she served as Skokie’s first female physician. A horseshoe in the sidewalk in front of the shop marks its history and purpose.
ADAM HARRER HOUSE
A brick home at 5309 Oakton Street belonged to Skokie’s first mayor, Adam Harrer, who also served as the fire chief. The original structure, elaborate for its time, had two fireplaces and two parlors, four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a garden apartment. While it went through several renovations over the years, it currently resembles its appearance in 1908.
SKOKIE HERITAGE MUSEUM
A window into the past at the Historic Fire Engine House reveals the equipment that helped volunteers keep the city safe. The structure at 8031 Floral Avenue provides a home for Skokie’s Heritage Museum and Historical Society. In addition, it presents a display of a reconstructed 1800s ladder truck, hand pumper, hose cart, chemical tank, nozzles and more.
ST. PETER CATHOLIC CHURCH
At the apex of Lincoln Avenue and Niles Center Rd, a Gothic Revival Style church features arches and columns inside and out. Built for an estimated $33,000 in 1894, the church represents the architectural genius of Chicago’s Henry Schlacks who designed the structure.

The Skokie dermatology location provides convenient access without a trip to the city. With locations in Chicago and Tampa, our premier dermatologists offer world-class dermatological care. Pediatric, adult, and senior clients can receive treatment that resolves any issue with skin, hair, and nails.
The latest state-of-the-art technology allows our skilled dermatologists to offer cosmetic treatments that enhance appearance and self-image. Crow’s feet that make lines around the eyes can disappear with cosmetic treatment. In addition, creases that furrow the forehead can become less noticeable. Botox injections and Juvederm fillers smooth any uneven areas or plump features that age can lessen. Our Skokie dermatologist can perform laser resurfacing to remove scars or aging lines and defy nature’s effect. The range of cosmetic options gives clients access to tattoo removal, laser hair removal, and CoolSculpting can provide a dramatic improvement in appearance.

Her training at Chicago’s most prestigious institutions includes the Pritzker School of Medicine and the University of Chicago Hospital’s residency program.
