What Is A Dermatologist?
A dermatologist is a physician who specializes in the medical and surgical treatment of diseases of the skin, hair and nails. Dermatologists are certified by the American Board of Dermatology after extensive medical education followed by three years of medical and surgical residency. Dermatologists are good diagnosticians and can distinguish between conditions that share similar signs and symptoms. Dermatologists are also skillful outpatient surgeons, utilizing their training and experience to remove suspicious moles, cysts and other unwanted growths, and skin cancers including melanomas. Today many dermatologists are also well versed in cosmetic dermatology procedures to help improve the appearance of skin.
