A dermatologist is a medical doctor who specializes in skin, the diseases of the skin, and the relationship of skin lesions to overall disease.
Today’s dermatologists have completed many years of training to become experts in their field.
- Four-year undergraduate degree
- Four years of medical school
- One year of internship
- A minimum of three years in an accredited dermatology residency program
They may also undertake additional studies in specialized areas.
In addition to completing the required educational medical training, all of our doctors are Board Certified dermatologists. Board certification means a doctor has taken and passed a rigorous examination that covers all areas of dermatology including general practice for adults and children, surgery, and pathology. The American Board of Dermatology is the certifying body for dermatologists in the United States. Not all physicians in practice are board certified in the specialties they practice.
Our commitment to quality begins with our physicians. Each one of our doctors has achieved both academic and professional accolades. Our doctors are trained in the latest procedures, technologies and state-of-the-art medical equipment. Rest assured, you will find a doctor that is right for you at Dermatology Consultants.
