Dermatology is the medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases of the skin, hair, nails, mouth and genitals. Considering the fact that skin alone is your body’s largest organ, dermatology literally covers a lot of area. That’s why Northeast Medical Group’s board-certified dermatologists can play an important role in your overall health and wellness.

Northeast Medical Group dermatologists are specially trained physicians with a wide range of expertise in caring for adult and pediatric patients. Your primary doctor may refer you to a dermatologist for a variety of conditions, including psoriasis, eczema, acne, skin cancers, vitiligo, hair loss and nail disorders. Northeast Medical Group dermatologists are able to diagnose and treat those and dozens of other diseases and illnesses, and can prescribe necessary medications. They are skilled in performing various in-office medical and cosmetic procedures, and collaborate with other specialists to address more complex dermatology problems, such as certain surgical procedures or cancers. If you have chronic or recurring conditions, your Northeast Medical Group dermatologist can coordinate follow-up care.

Dermatologists often recommend regular preventive care check-ups, especially if you have a personal history of skin cancer, a family history of melanoma or a large number of moles on your body. And because your skin, hair and nails change with the passage of time, your Northeast Medical Group dermatologist offers advice about how sun exposure, hormonal status, genetics and coexisting internal disorders can affect your health.
