WHAT IS A PHYSICIAN EXTENDER?
A Physician Extender is a Physician Assistant or Nurse Practitioner who has trained to be an extension of the individual physician who has trained them. Physician Extenders are highly educated and trained to function independently under the supervision of a physician and can diagnose, treat and prescribe medications for medical conditions.
WHAT IS A COSMETIC PROCEDURE?
Cosmetic procedures are considered elective and are not covered by your insurance company because they are considered not medically necessary. Examples of such procedures are Botox, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, Restylane, skin tag removals and removal of benign moles.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING MY FULL BODY SKIN EXAM?
It is a comprehensive exam where the provider will ask you about both your family and personal skin history—whether anyone has had skin cancer, how often you’re exposed to the sun, how many sunburns you’ve had, and of course, whether you’ve ever done any indoor tanning.
The provider will exam every inch of your skin from your scalp to between your toes. If you’re feeling self-conscious, remember that they’ve seen it all before and a few minutes of exposure means knowing the truth about your skin. This is a great time for you to get familiar with your skin also. If you need anything removed, that may happen at a later appointment.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I SEE MY DERMATOLOGIST?
You should see a dermatologist yearly for a full body skin exam. It is the best way to spot skin cancers early, and if they are caught early, skin cancers are 100 percent curable.
We not only see children, teenagers and young adults for full body skin exams, but we also treat them for common skin conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis and warts.
