Our Care

Benefits of an academic medical center

As physicians and teachers, we focus our attention on the most current research and philosophies of dermatologic treatment. As treatment options broaden, patients can be confident that cutting-edge care, such as prescription and management of biologic agents, will be fully explored and offered when appropriate. Furthermore, as members of an academic community, our physicians have access to specialized diagnostic services and a wide range of subspecialists available for consultation.

Highest standard of dermatology care

All dermatology services at VCU Health have the highest standard of clinical excellence in the region as we carefully follow the compliance standards with The Joint Commission, the credentialing body for U.S. healthcare organizations. In addition, we offer the very highest level certified histology lab onsite for the examination of tissue samples. At VCU Health, we also follow the rigorous guidelines for both the College of American Pathologists (CAP) and certification through Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA). 

Conditions we treat

VCU Health Dermatology provides specialty care for the diagnosis and treatment of the skin, hair, nails and mucous membranes. Because many common skin problems can be managed by a primary care provider, we offer Web-based recommendations for the management of common adult and pediatric skin problems such as acne, eczema, warts, seborrheic keratosis and skin tags.
