What is Medical Dermatology?
Medical, or General Dermatology, includes the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the skin, hair, and nails. Board-certified dermatologists, Dr. Reichel, Dr. Jacobson, Dr. Finesmith, and Dr. Lamel undergo extensive training in diagnosing and treating skin conditions during residency. Dermatology residency is a four-year training program that takes place after medical school. At the completion of residency, dermatologists take an examination, called the boards. Physician assistants (PA-C), like Andrea English, Ashley Miguel, and Abby Ehntholt undergo a three-year training program after college to become certified.
They then decide on a specific area of medicine, and undergo further training “on the job”. While they all work under the supervision of Dr. Reichel, Andrea, Abby, Jennifer, and Ashley see their own patients, prescribes medications, performs surgical procedures, and are highly skilled in diagnosing and treating medical dermatology conditions. When looking for a dermatologist, Mohs surgeon, or Cosmetic surgeon, make sure that your doctor has good credentials and is board-certified.
