A dermatologist is a medical doctor who specializes in skin care. A dermatologist receives extensive training in treating skin problems and helping keep skin healthy. After earning a medical degree and completing an internship, a dermatologist receives three more years of specialty training to become an expert who is dedicated to skin, hair, and nails. With this extensive training, experience, and passion, your dermatologist will help to keep your skin, hair, and nails healthy throughout your lifetime.
PAs (physician associates/physician assistants) are licensed clinicians who practice medicine in varying specialties in collaboration with medical doctors. Trusted, rigorously educated, and trained healthcare professionals, PAs are dedicated to expanding access to care and transforming health and wellness through patient-centered, team-based medical practice. PAs in dermatology evaluate, diagnose, and treat a broad variety of conditions that are treated both medically and surgically. They also perform screening exams, preventive care and education for dermatologic patients and families.
