Our goal is to improve the quality of care to seniors. Having OnSite Dermatology services on a regular basis will provide your community with a value added service at no additional cost, therefore eliminating the need for transportation arrangements and lengthy wait times in doctors’ offices. Additionally this benefits patients, allowing for more one-on-one attention.
In addition to seeing residents for healthy skin checks, we have the ability to address any rashes, growths or skin concerns they may have. We also diagnose and treat pre-cancers, perform biopsies on site and treat certain positive skin cancers OnSite as well.
