For more than 40 years, Rockwood specialists have been treating
diseases and disorders of the skin in patients from infants to the
elderly. A dermatologist is a physician who is trained to evaluate
and manage pediatric and adult patients with benign and malignant
disorders of the skin, hair, nails and adjacent mucous membranes.
These conditions include but are not limited to: rashes, acne, skin
cancers, sun damage, moles, warts, eczema, fungus, hair loss,
psoriasis and skin allergies.
We offer phototherapy (PUVA and UVB) for psoriasis and other
skin conditions, and outpatient surgery for removal of a variety of
benign and malignant growths.
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the U.S., with
more than one million cases diagnosed each year. Be smart:
avoid the rays during 10 AM to 4 PM and always wear sunscreen - 365
days a year.
See your doctor for an annual skin cancer screening, and keep an
eye on any changing freckles, moles and skin spots. Report
any changes to your doctor. Call us today for a screening or
to learn more!
