Skin issues can be uncomfortable, embarrassing, and sometimes dangerous. Proper diagnosis and treatment by a dermatologist who specializes in children’s skin diseases is important.
At the Pediatric and Adolescent Dermatology Center, the latest medications and advanced technology is used.
Our physicians are fellowship-trained in pediatric dermatology and double board-certified in dermatology and pediatric dermatology.
Our advanced facility enables us to perform minor surgical procedures for children. Laser therapy with anesthesia also is available in our pediatric operating rooms for infants, children and adolescents. The goal is to make patients and their families comfortable, and to provide them with reassurance about their skin.
