The Physician Assistants practice under the supervision of our Dermatologists who are always available for consultation. A patient who is willing to see our Physician Assistants will generally be able to schedule an appointment more promptly than a patient who is waiting to see a Dermatologist. You will find our Physician Assistants to be skilled, knowledgeable and compassionate. Anyone seen by the Physician Assistant who is dissatisfied in any way, may request a Dermatologist’s consultation at the same visit at no additional charge.
