Welcome To The Dr. Shore Cosmetic And Medical Dermatology Group

For most, a dermatologist is someone who treats rashes, acne, and rosacea; they do skin exams to check for questionable moles and can help with issues such as thinning hair, to name a few. It is recommended you first make sure they are board-certified from the American Academy of Dermatology. Then it’s a good idea to look at their bios, testimonials, services offered, and accolades. Finally, schedule a consultation. The best days are Monday and Tuesday because these are the busiest days and will allow you to talk with other patients and ask them about their experiences.
