Dermatologists 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 lists of the Top 10 Patient-Rated Dermatologists in 27 major cities around the U.S.
Vitals’ Top 10 Patient-Rated Dermatologists are those doctors who’ve been rated the highest in qualities that patients value: a good bedside manner, accessibility, adequate follow-up, ease of appointment, diagnosis accuracy, time spent with the patient, office wait time, and staff courtesy.
