I consider myself part of my medical staff or team with each one of us playing a unique roll in serving and educating our patients. My staff is totally dedicated to instruct and facilitate healthy outcomes. They per se do not diagnose or see patients alone. I AM ALWAYS THERE TO GREET, DIAGNOSE, PRESCRIBE, PERFORM SURGERY, REMOVE SUTURES, AND ATTEND TO ALL WOUND CARE ETC. You will always see me from start to finish. The doctor is always "in" to see you personally and share 43 years of excellent dermatologic training and expertise from some of the best medical institutions in the country, (Brown, Darthmouth, Harvard Universities) and trained by some of the world's best experts. I have had 50 wonderful years in medicine, including Board Certification in Dermatology and Internal Medicine. YOUR DIAGNOSIS, TREATMENT, CARE, and SURGERY, IS MY RESPONSIBILITY, NOT SOME NURSE PRACTIONER OR RN WITH LIMITED EXPERIENCE!
Is my staff well trained? They are excellent because every day is a teaching and learning experience for them, orchestrated by my years of total dedication to Medicine. They are educators par excellence, teaching and reinforcing the best, the healthiest, most reasonable, financially practical ways to return your skin to optimal health. We don't stop there. Under my direct guidance, they offer ways to enhance or regain your overall health, which of course will benefit your skin condition greatly.
