What Are Common Skin Conditions?
Medical skin conditions are those that affect the skin, nails, hair, or scalp, whether they are present at birth or they develop over time. While many skin concerns, such as mild rashes, can disappear on their own, chronic skin conditions or those that persist will typically require medical attention.

Common Skin Conditions Reviews
"Outstanding doctor! She finally found a diagnosis for an issue I've been dealing with since August of 2021. She was the only dermatologist who came to see me in the hospital to perform a biopsy, that the hospital would not do. She is very compassionate and caring! Most importantly takes her time with you, not like other doctors who makes you feel rushed. Highly recommend!"- L.P. / Google / May 11, 2022
