Derick Dermatology in Riverview, FL
Good news! Derick Dermatology is opening a new location in Riverview, Florida! We are excited to be bringing our world-class dermatology services to such a fine area!
Riverview is one of the oldest settlements in Florida. It is located in Hillsborough County and boasts a population of approximately 100,000. Riverview is close enough to Tampa on the southeast side that some might refer to it as a bedroom community. In fact, anyone who loves to fish can do so at Tampa Bay in less than an hour’s drive, and the beautiful white sand beaches of the Gulf Coast are only a stone’s throw away. In line with its name, the Alafia River runs through Riverview. The river was once known as the “River of Fire” because the water contained so much phosphorous that it literally glowed.
Features of Riverview, Florida
Riverview offers plenty of outdoor family activities, including fishing, boating, hiking, and golf. The Bell Creek Nature Preserve contains nearly 500 acres filled with an abundance of plants and wildlife. Just down the road from Bell Creek is the Balm-Boyette Scrub, another nature preserve that protects native shrubs and provides a number of excellent hiking trails. Located about 30 minutes away is Bush Gardens, a theme park with rides and exotic animals from around the world. Tampa is also home to South Florida University and to several professional sports teams, including the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Riverview Dermatology Services
Derick Dermatology will be offering medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatological services to adults, children, and senior citizens in the Riverview, Florida, area. Our qualified dermatologists are excited to be able to offer these services to the residents of Riverview because we know what the sun’s exposure can do to the skin of people who live in Florida. For your convenience, we will be offering late afternoon, weekend, and telemedicine appointments as well as appointments at various times throughout the week.
Routine Checkups by World-Class Dermatologists
Because of the intense exposure to the sun that Floridians receive on a daily basis, it is vital for patients to get regular dermatological checkups. This is to help you prevent damage to your skin as well as to repair any damage that has already occurred. Our highly skilled dermatologists can help you maintain a healthy, youthful appearance. We can also help your skin to remain elastic so that you can continue to enjoy those outdoor recreational activities that are so plentiful in Riverview. In addition to skin cancer, we also treat acne, hair loss, rosacea, and a number of other skin issues.
Derick Medical Dermatology
Medical dermatology involves the diagnosis and treatment of various skin conditions and illnesses. Not only do we treat skin cancer, but we also treat a myriad of other skin conditions, including those that are extremely rare. Here are some of the skin conditions and illnesses that we treat:
Acne is a common skin condition caused by clogged pores or hair follicles under the skin. It results in small to large red bumps on the skin and can be very painful. Some bumps may be filled with pus. When over-the-counter medications fail to provide relief, you should contact us so that a medical dermatologist can help you set up a treatment plan to control breakouts.
Most cysts are sacs that contain a liquid or semisolid substance. They may be small or large and can sometimes cause pain. If you have a cyst that is troublesome, you should let us evaluate it to make sure that it is not cancerous. We can treat your cyst so that serious complications are avoided.
Dermatitis is a skin condition that includes a number of rashes and inflammations of the skin. Because there are so many types of dermatitis, it is important to see a Riverview dermatologist who can diagnose and set up a treatment plan for the specific type of dermatitis that you have.
Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a chronic condition that affects countless adults and children. It can flare up suddenly and itch intensely. Eczema can be difficult to treat, but our board-certified dermatologists can help you find the best treatment plan for you.
A lesion is a general term that describes any type of damage to the skin. Lesions are sometimes caused by trauma, but they can also occur as the result of a disease. Because there are so many types of lesions, one of our medical dermatologists should analyze its characteristics so that we can administer the most effective treatment.
A mole is a common type of skin growth. Most moles are benign, but some are cancerous. We can remove harmless moles for cosmetic reasons. We can also determine whether a mole is cancerous and provide intervention if it is.
Like many other skin diseases, psoriasis can cause a rash with itchy patches of scaly skin. It often occurs on a patient’s knees and elbows. Some people suffer from psoriasis for many years. We can help you to limit the discomfort of psoriasis in your everyday life.
Rosacea causes swollen red patches, red bumps, and visible blood vessels on your face. We diagnose it through a physical exam and your answers to a set of questions. Once we confirm that it is rosacea, we can set up a treatment plan to help you control it over a long period of time.
Warts are small, hard growths on your skin. They may or may not be painful. Most warts can be successfully removed by a treatment that we perform in our office.
Derick Surgical Dermatology
Treating a skin condition sometimes requires surgery. Fortunately, we can perform most surgeries in our office using minimally invasive procedures. This means that you will not have to spend time in a hospital or miss a lot of work. Even surgeries for more serious skin conditions like cancer can often be performed by one of our dermatological surgeons on an outpatient basis using either microscopic techniques or more conventional forms of surgery. We will also work with you in an ongoing fashion to ensure timely recovery.
