When you need the services of a dermatologist, you may find that you must choose from doctors with whom you have had no dealings in the past. This can leave you a little apprehensive over whether you are getting the best treatment available. One way you can give yourself some peace of mind is to seek out a dermatologist that is board certified.
Obtaining board certification is not something that comes easy. Doctors must meet minimum educational requirements and be committed to staying current with the latest medical knowledge through continuing education. They must also pass a rigorous examination and abide by a code of ethics. The advantage for the patient is that, by using the services of a doctor who is board certified, they are getting the latest and best care available from a well-qualified practitioner.
Many of the reasons people seek the services of a dermatologist have to do with the appearance. It naturally stands to reason that, if you are trying to improve the appearance, that you want top quality care.
One of the biggest reasons people seek care from a dermatologist is to get help with acne. This does not only affect people in their teens. Adults can struggle with it also. If you are dealing with a case of acne that does not respond to treatment, we invite you to schedule a consultation at Metro Dermatology.
Skin conditions like atopic dermatitis, vitiligo, and psoriasis can be very frustrating to deal with. Luckily, skin conditions like these can be treated through phototherapy and excimer laser treatments. During treatment, our board certified dermatologist will use a specialized device to emit light that will help your skin to reduce chronic itching, fight bacteria and increase Vitamin D.
If you have been unfortunate with past acne cases and have scars as a result, our board certified dermatologist will know the best treatment method that can be used to get rid of them.
Regardless of your reason for seeing a dermatologist, it only makes sense to get the best care available by seeing one who is board certified. To schedule a consultation, you can contact Metro Dermatology. Our offices are located in Elmhurst, Flushing, Englewood and the Bronx.
