We offer comprehensive treatments for the following skin conditions:
Acne is an extremely common inflammatory condition of the skin, most commonly involving the face, chest, and back. While most often seen in adolescents, it can affect all ages from infants to adults.

Rosacea is a common skin condition characterized by varying degrees of redness and skin sensitivity oftentimes mixed with acne-like lesions, flushing, and dilated blood vessels. Many things are known to trigger rosacea including stress, caffeine, alcohol, spicy foods, and sunlight. Several medical treatment options exist to manage this chronic condition and we can help develop the right regimen for you.
Sun Spots/Brown Spots
Chronic sun damage to the skin over time can lead to the development of flat brown spots called lentigines. While usually non-cancerous, there are products available to help improve these over time. This includes proper sunscreen use and application of prescription medications such as retinoids.
Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)
Excessive sweating affects men and women of all ages and is most common to involve the underarms, palms, and soles. We often prescribe topical as well as oral medications to help control this bothersome condition.
These crusty, warty skin growths often start to appear after age 30 years in both men and women. They come in a variety of colors from pink, to tan, to dark brown. While non-cancerous, we can remove bothersome or itchy lesions if necessary.
Skin cancer is the #1 most common cancer overall. The main 3 types of skin cancer are basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. All three types are highly curable if caught and treated early. Our goal is to catch skin cancer in the early stages before it becomes problematic by performing thorough skin exams.
Precancerous Lesions (Actinic Keratoses)
Chronic sun damage over many years can lead to the development of precancerous lesions known as actinic keratoses. These often appear as red scaly bumps or patches on sun exposed skin that never go away. It is important to treat these lesions as over time, although rare, a precancerous lesion can transform into a cancerous one. We have several treatment options to help remove precancerous lesions.
Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis)
Eczema is a chronic, itchy skin condition most commonly seen in kids but can affect people of all ages. With proper skin care and oftentimes prescription medical therapies, eczema is a highly manageable skin condition.
Psoriasis is an inflammatory skin condition that often appears as thickened, scaly, red plaques on various areas of the body. Of those with psoriasis, 30% will also develop painful joints due to psoriatic arthritis. Psoriasis has been a “hot topic” in medicine over the last several years and numerous successful treatments now exist to better treat this chronic condition.
Melasma is a skin condition where tan to brown patches develop in sun exposed areas, most commonly the forehead, cheeks, and upper lip area. It is most commonly seen in pregnant females or females on birth control, but can also be seen in men. While there is no cure, we can help develop a plan to help you improve the look of your skin.
Moles can appear in a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors. If our providers feel that there are concerning features present, removal with a biopsy may be necessary. Some moles can also get irritated and inflamed due to size and/or location. These can also be removed if bothersome.
Dermatologists are often sought out to help determine what type of rash a patient has or what treatments exist to help manage or resolve a certain type of rash. Sometimes a biopsy is performed to help determine the diagnosis if it is not obvious on exam.
Alopecia is a broad term that encompasses a variety of hair loss conditions. Hair loss can be scarring or non-scarring and can have numerous causes such as stress, inflammation in the skin, or autoimmune-type hair loss. A dermatologist can help figure out what type of hair loss a patient has, which may include a biopsy if deemed necessary by the provider.
Warts and Molluscum
Warts and molluscum are both viral infections of the skin seen in all ages, but are most commonly in children. We have a wide variety of treatments available to help treat both problems. Sometimes a combination of treatments is needed, as some warts especially can be resistant to treatment.
