What is a dermatologist?
Dermatologists are specialized medical doctors who treat a wide variety of skin, hair, and nail issues that may require medical and surgical components for treatment. Dermatologists first obtain a medical degree before completing an additional 3-year-minimum focused residency in dermatology. Board-certified dermatologists, like Dr. Saucier, go a step further by then passing a rigorous certification exam for dermatology.
What do dermatologists do?
In general, for medical issues, dermatologists first diagnose the issue and then treat accordingly. The recommended treatments often depend on many factors, and in some instances may allow for choices to be made by the doctor and patient. Choices between medicines, method of delivery, or surgical and non-surgical options may be offered with the goal to provide the best outcome, affordably. Regular skin screenings and patient education given by the doctor can help provide a level of preventive medicine as well.
