Why you need an annual skin checkup

You have skin, right? Did you know that skin is the largest organ in the body? That’s why even if you don’t have any obvious issues, you should see a dermatologist annually.

As a board-certified dermatologist, I specialize in diagnosing and treating conditions and diseases of the skin, hair, and nails. There is no other doctor who is as knowledgeable about your skin concerns than a dermatologist.

As your dermatologist, I am an expert in skin cancers and their surgical and medical treatments. But that’s not all I do. I also specialize in other dermatologic disorders such as acne treatment and anti-aging therapies, keeping your skin looking youthful, dealing with any current issues that may arise, and much more. My practice provides the full spectrum of dermatological services, including both medical and cosmetic care.

Reasons to see us every year

Here are just some of the conditions I diagnose and/or treat at annual skin checkups:

  • Identify various types of skin cancer. 
  • Remove moles, skin tags, and warts.
  • Biopsy suspicious lesion.
  • Diagnose skin conditions, such as rosacea — a skin condition that causes flushed skin, red bumps, broken blood vessels, and inflammation.
  • Treat chronic skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema, and acne.

Patients often have other skin issues — including signs of aging, skin discolorations, and scars — and, during annual checkups is a great time to discuss these concerns. This gives us the opportunity to make recommendations and schedule appropriate services.

Why choose us?
