Finding a Dermatologist

Finding a Dermatologist

Your skin is your body’s largest organ and its care is crucial. For that, you need a good, board-certified dermatologist like Dr. Aboutalebi. A dermatologist can monitor your skin and its needs by annual skin checks for skin cancer, and by treating skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, hair loss, atopic dermatitis, and much more. Dermatologists can also provide cosmetic procedures for aging or damaged skin.

Dermatologists can also determine if your skin symptoms are the result of an underlying problem elsewhere in your body. They are a wealth of information and education for your skin’s best health.

How do you find a good dermatologist?

When looking for a dermatologist, you want to find one who is board certified and has great reviews. Ask your friends who they use and what they think. Word of mouth is sometimes the best way to find a healthcare specialist. Check with the American Academy of Dermatology for a list of dermatologists in your area to consider.

What to look for on your first visit?

Dr. Aboutalebi is Fort Worth’s recognized top doctors and has received the Patient’s Choice Award for several years. You can rest assured that your skin is in the right hands. Call today to schedule your skin exam at Northstar Dermatology.
