Our Mission And Our Place In The Community
Our doctors and staff understand that your skin represents… you! Changes to your skin can have a profound impact on you medically and socially, both in the short and long term. We also know that if you have a new and concerning skin issue, waiting a month to have that seen is simply not helpful. Our mission is to bring the highest quality dermatologic care, from the best medical training programs in the country, in a timely fashion, to you and our community here in Loudoun.
Our practice is dedicated to providing personalized care for your skin condition and customizing our treatments to best suit your needs. Those needs may be focused on the effectiveness, cost, side effects, and/or duration of treatment, among many things. We want to take the time to thoroughly counsel our patients to ensure you understand the nature of your diagnosis, your options for treatment, and the expected outcomes from treatment. Simply put, we are here to help and address what you find most important.
Skincare For Everyone In The Family
Excellent skin care and beautiful, healthy skin should not be reserved for just the women in the household! Men should not suffer and ignore a skin condition — our approach to timely access, education, and efficient treatment is the same for men as it is for all our patients.
We also know that skin issues with our beloved children can be even more disconcerting. The youngest kids often take more time to calm fears and to change a cry to a smile before we go any further. Teenagers may need more counseling and encouragement to stick with a treatment plan, and to see the “big picture.”
Your care begins with your first phone call or email to our practice and continues once you walk through our doors and back into your room. We understand that all happens before you see a single physician in our practice. That’s why we are just as proud of our staff of front desk and administrative assistants, medical assistants, billing specialist and practice manager to help deliver your care (and all the things that come up along the way). Health care and health insurance these days can be confusing and frustrating; we are here to offer a better, more efficient, and calmer experience .
Technology That Improves Your Care
Technology plays a large role in making the delivery of your care safer and easier. Paper patient charts have inherent risks for error and are an inefficient way of record-keeping. We have used one of the best electronic health record (EHR) systems in the industry, long before it was mandated.
Here are some examples of how our investment in technology can make your life easier:
- Our prescriptions are ready at your preferred pharmacy by the time you leave our office
- Request an appointment online, through our Patient Portal, or make your own appointment here
- Our consultations are sent electronically to your primary care doctor by the time you leave our office
- Complete and submit your medical history and patient registration (and save on paper) on our waiting room tablets or online right here
- View your dermatologic history, medications, and treatments online through our secure Patient Portal
- Request prescription refills and lab results, or ask questions through our Patient Portal
