What is a Dermatologist?
A dermatologist is a doctor who specializes in treating disorders of the skin, hair, and nails. Common reasons for patients to seek a dermatologist in your area include acne, psoriasis, warts, eczema, and fungal infections. Dermatologists treat patients of all ages, from young children to the elderly. Most dermatological procedures, including mole removal and other types of minor surgery, can be completed right in your dermatologist's office.
