Why Choose a Board Certified Dermatologist?

When a patient selects a board-certified dermatologist, it serves as an automatic assurance for them that the dermatologist would have received a certain minimum number of years of training and would have the necessary skill and expertise to have been awarded a board certification.

Board certified dermatologists typically invest in high-quality standards and best practices, adopt cutting-edge dermatologic techniques and technology, pursue continuing education, and follow the latest safety protocols to deliver the best possible results to their patients.

Patients should carefully evaluate the dermatologist’s qualifications, training, and experience in performing skin cancer removal and other skin care procedures. An astute dermatologist will always be open about their professional credentials, safety record, and patient satisfaction rates in any procedure.
