top10 150x150 Vitals Names Top 10 Patient Rated Dermatologists in San Diego PhotoDermatologists are responsible for treating the body’s largest organ – the skin – as well as the hair, nails, and scalp. The number of conditions affecting these areas of the body are both varied and numerous, ranging from a simple case of dandruff and aesthetic issues to the deadliest forms of skin cancer, or melanoma.

While many people come for treatments like mole removal, scar diminishment, botox injections, and face lifts, the American Academy of Dermatology recommends visiting a dermatologist annually for a skin cancer screening, as early detection greatly increases the survival rate. So, in an effort to encourage the public to schedule what should be a routine appointment for maintaining good health, Vitals has released the list of the Top 10 Patient-Rated Dermatologists in San Diego.
