What Is Medical Dermatology?

A medical dermatologist is trained to treat a variety of skin diseases. The professionals at Derick Dermatology can help you at all stages of the process from initial evaluation and diagnosis to the creation and implementation of a custom treatment plan.

Medical dermatology is a generalized practice that focuses on a long list of skin conditions. From moderate acne to all stages of skin cancer, you can count on our experienced and compassionate dermatology team to help you understand all of your treatment options. The goal is always to heal and recover, but some dermatological conditions require long-term management and ongoing treatment.
