Yes.

Our doctors also continue to actively participate in continuing medical education to stay abreast of the latest advances in dermatology.
Do you provide cosmetic services?
Yes. Please click here for a list of cosmetic dermatology products, treatment and procedures offered.
Is there a Cosmetic Consultation Fee?
All cosmetic consultations are $75. This fee will be deducted from the cost of a cosmetic treatment (such as Botox) performed at the initial appointment, or a cosmetic treatment received within one year of the consultation. If you need to cancel your consultation appointment, please contact us at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment time.
We also offer CareCredit. CareCredit makes payment easy and allows you to pay for cosmetic procedures over time instead of a lump sum prior to treatment.
I have a changing mole that I am worried about. How do I make sure that it is evaluated in a timely manner?
Please clearly inform the scheduling telephone staff that you have a mole that you are very concerned about. Our staff will do their best to make sure that one of the physicians sees you in a timely manner, if appropriate.

How do I obtain a prescription refill?
Please feel free to contact our office during normal business hours if you have questions regarding your condition, medication, or treatment. If appropriate, prescription refill requests will be called into your pharmacy within 24 hours. Because of the visual nature of dermatologic diseases, it is usually not possible to diagnose and treat new problems over the phone. Additionally, changes in your condition may also necessitate you being seen by a physician.

No. Starting January 1, 2017, New Patients will be required to pay $100.00 at the initial visit and Established Patients will be required to pay $50.00 at each visit- until your deductible has been met.
