Tips for making the most of your visit
What should I wear?
Something comfortable. For skin checks, patients are asked to remove as much clothing as they are comfortable with. I always prefer to check as much skin as possible!
Please refrain from wearing any make-up on the day of your appointment.
Do you do cosmetic procedures?
No. I am exclusively a medical dermatologist, but I have an incredibly talented partner, Dr. Rachel Kyllo who is a board certified Mohs surgeon and cosmetic dermatologist. I am happy to share her information.
Should I bring someone with me?
Probably not. Patient's under 18 will need a guardian, but most patients will be fine coming alone.
Will insurance cover my visit?
This depends upon your insurance company, so I always recommend checking your benefits prior to scheduling. I can say with certainty that skin tags are never covered by insurance.
Will procedures be performed same day?
Sometimes. If I am concerned that you have a skin cancer, then absolutely that will be done same day! Cosmetic mole removals, skin tags, etc. are not performed same day.
What if I want to talk about hair loss?
We can absolutely do that! It just will need to be a separate appointment since these discussions can be lengthy.
