Department of Dermatology
The Department of Dermatology serves as a regional center for outpatient and inpatient care for patients with complex cutaneous diseases. Dermatologists treat a range of diseases and tumors of the skin. We are dedicated to improving the quality of life for patients afflicted with skin disease through state-of-the-art patient care, education and research.
Our physicians evaluate complex skin disorders including eczema, psoriasis, acne, pigmentary disorders and allergies and cancers of the skin; oversees the diagnosis of skin biopsies and the evaluation and management of malignant melanoma; and provide a comprehensive assessment and treatment of stings and bites. Through our residency program we train the next generation of dermatologists and undertake clinical and basic science research to advance the our understanding of skin disorders and improve treatment options.
The Department of Dermatology specializes in General Dermatology, Pediatric Dermatology, Dermatopathology, Immunologic Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery. Services include darkfield examination for syphilis, immunofluorescent examinations of skin, histopathologic diagnosis of skin biopsies, electron microscopy of skin biopsies and photochemotherapy.
