What is a Dermatologist?

A Dermatologist is a medical doctor who has undergone extensive training to understand conditions affecting the skin, hair and nails. This training first requires completion of medical school and a one year internship. Dermatology specialty training is three years long. This training involves significant time devoted to the study of normal and abnormal skin, hair and nail conditions under the supervision of qualified dermatology staff.

There is no substitute for this training and background when it comes to providing quality skin care. At Lee’s Summit Dermatology Associates, we look forward to helping you with your dermatology needs.
