A dermatologist is a highly skilled professional who can diagnose and treat countless conditions related to the skin, hair, and nails. If you are living with acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, age spots, skin cancer, or other cutaneous conditions, you can benefit from seeing a dermatologist on a regular basis. We recommend you find a doctor that offers the following.
The dermatologist you select should be board certified by the American Board of Dermatology, the gold standard for the industry. This is important as any doctor can start a dermatology/skincare practice if they have a medical degree but they may not have the special education and training necessary to deliver the highest quality of care.
A Variety of Services
The dermatologist you choose should offer a variety of services. This way, you don’t have to drive around town going from doctor to doctor every time a new skin issue arises. They should be able to help you with your acne, moles, rashes, aging skin, wrinkles or any other skin concern that may come your way.
Rather than going with the first dermatologist you find, do your due diligence and find a dermatologist with an excellent reputation. Ask your primary care doctor, other physicians, and friends who they recommend. Check for positive reviews. This way, you can increase your chances of making a wise decision.
A Friendly, Helpful Personality
When you’re with a dermatologist, you should feel comfortable and valued. The doctor should thoroughly answer your questions and address any concerns you may have. If you call with a problem or issue, the office should get back to you in a timely fashion.
Dr. Norden has a wonderful manner. I went for an annual skin check and she is respectful, friendly, professional. I was sorry to lose my retired dermatologist, but happy that Dr. Norden seems to be a great replacement! Staff also very professional and friendly.
