Medical Dermatology

Medical Dermatology refers to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the skin, hair and nails. Many conditions treated by a dermatologist are easily diagnosed and can be resolved in a short period of time with simple treatment plans. Other skin pathology is very complex, requiring expert diagnostic abilities and may demand multifaceted treatment systems used over a long period of time. The medical staff at North Valley Dermatology Center participates in ongoing educational opportunities in order to make the most current knowledge and technologies available.

The Medical Dermatology portion of this web site contains information regarding a selection of medical skin conditions. Discussions of the designated topics include an outline of basic treatment programs and management tips for selected diseases. Application of this information in a clinical setting with a dermatologist will be approached with the emphasis on needs of each individual.

The mission of North Valley Dermatology Center is to provide superior, comprehensive skin care to the residents of Northern California communities. This includes intervention in and resolution of skin disease, education regarding the prevention of skin pathology, and creation of skin health and beauty.
