OUR PHYSICIAN ASSISTANTS

& NURSE PRACTITIONERS

Certified physician assistants are medical providers formally trained in surgical and primary care, graduating from one of over 100 accredited academic medical-model training programs in the United States. All PAs are trained in wound closures. In addition, they are trained to perform biopsies and cryotherapy, as well as perform simple and complex excisions. Dermatology PAs assist in treatment of acne, psoriasis, phototherapy and other general dermatologic conditions. Others perform a wide variety of surgical procedures and assist in Mohs micrographic surgery.

A certified registered nurse practitioner, or CRNP, is an advanced practice nurse who performs the functions of a physician. CRNPs make medical diagnoses, order laboratory tests and diagnostic imaging studies and prescribe medications. Dermatology is one of the more specialized areas of nurse practitioner work. Our dermatology nurse practitioners specialize in treating all types of disease and medical issues that manifest on the surface of the skin. These conditions can vary from acne to skin cancer and everything in between.
