Treating Skin Problems
Newborns, infants, children and adolescents can have a surprising variety of skin, hair and nail issues, ranging from genetic and developmental disorders to infections. Many of these issues affect children only, not adults.
Our pediatric dermatology experts are well versed in treating young skin using the most effective, yet gentle, treatments available. Since we only work with newborns, children and young adults, we are able to focus on giving them the very best care possible, identifying the root cause of the problem and developing a plan of action that can address even the most complex and daunting of skin problems.
At our disposal are some of the most advanced diagnostic tools and latest treatments available. And while our ability to care for and cure dermatological health problems is top notch, our style of care is very old fashioned. We take our time with our patients, ensuring they understand everything in plain, jargon-free terms, and answer all possible questions.
