Medical Dermatology entails the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the skin including eczemas, rashes, hives, psoriasis, acne, skin infections, blistering conditions and hair loss. Specific interests of the department include acne, atopic dermatitis, alopecia areata, cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, drug eruptions, psoriasis and immunological blistering diseases (Pemphigus, Pemphigoid). Dermatologists are trained to treat patients of all ages so it is a misnomer that children under the age of 18 should only be seen by pediatric dermatologists. Patients with common pediatric skin problems can be cared for by any of our physicians. However, our practice is home to two wonderful pediatric dermatologists.
