The skin is the body’s largest organ. As the outer protective covering of our bodies, it is exposed to the environment continuously and is vulnerable to growths, rashes, discolorations, cysts, burns, injuries, infections, and other disorders. The experienced physicians at Boulder Dermatology are here to address these issues and more.
Dermatology is the study of skin diseases and conditions. A dermatologist treats disorders relating to the skin, hair, and nails, and is a physician who has completed medical school, at least one year of postdoctoral training, and three or more years of intensive residency training in dermatology. After medical school, internship, and residency, a dermatologist is eligible to take the board certification examination offered by the American Board of Dermatology. Currently, there are approximately 9,000 board-certified dermatologists in the United States.
At Boulder Dermatology, all of our physicians are board certified and have extensive experience in every area of diagnosing and treating skin disorders. Equally important to our practice is our high level of personal attention to each individual. We care about people—we listen and educate in addition to providing medical services. We also care about our community, and each of our doctors is available for speaking engagements.
