Specialized, Dedicated Treatment for Persistent Skin Concerns

Your skin has an amazing ability to heal, to regenerate, and to keep itself healthy and strong. In many cases, minor skin conditions can be resolved with a little extra TLC at home or perhaps even with an over the counter treatment. Yet at other times, more persistent or serious skin conditions can undermine the health of your skin and significantly impact your appearance and your well-being. At these times, it may be necessary to seek out specialized skin care to help you—and your skin—stay strong and healthy for years to come!

If you are facing a skin concern, we encourage you to contact a specialist who focuses only on advanced medical and surgical dermatological services. Dr. Jamie L. McGinness specializes in cutting-edge surgical and non-surgical treatments for a variety of skin conditions that require a more effective treatment approach than you may be achieving with an over-the-counter remedy. A Board certified dermatologist, Dr. McGinness is a Fellowship-trained Mohs surgeon; in fact, he is currently the only Fellowship trained Mohs surgeon serving the Metro East Illinois St. Louis area.  

In addition to Mohs surgery for skin cancer, Dr. McGinness specialized in medical dermatology for a variety of skin conditions, the following is a small example of what Dr. McGinness treats:

The treatment of these and other serious skin conditions often requires specialized knowledge and treatment that goes well beyond cosmetic dermatology. Our goal is to develop an individualized treatment plan designed to help return your skin to health and restore your naturally beautiful appearance. Dr. McGinness does not offer “cookie-cutter”, one-size-fits-all treatment plans. Instead, he takes the time to get to know you and your medical history and background in order to ensure that the treatment approach he develops for you will have the greatest possible chances of success.

A critical part of the dedication to excellence in patient care is the understanding that a knowledgeable patient is a healthy patient. We want to be sure that you fully understand the root causes of your specific skin concern, the full range of potential treatment options, and the benefits and risks of each one. Dr. McGinness will take all the time necessary to listen to your concerns, answer your questions fully and completely, and be sure that you have all the information you need to make an informed, educated choice about the health of your skin.
