With new space, equipment, and staff, the Dermatology Department has considerably expanded the scope of its practice from traditional general dermatology to include advanced skin cancer care and cosmetic enhancements.

Board Certified Dermatologists Gregory Seymour, MD and Frank Murphy, MD see patients for a full range of common skin conditions, including but not limited to, acne, eczema, psoriasis, and seborrheic dermatitis.

Board Certified Dermatologist and Fellowship Trained Mohs micrographic surgeon Dr. Robert Guardiano brings specialized training in skin cancer care to the region. Mohs micrographic surgery offers the highest chance for complete removal of skin cancer with minimal disruption of healthy tissue. After the removal of the skin cancer, the area is commonly surgically reconstructed.

The practice also offers a range of cosmetic and laser services to rejuvenate and resurface skin to improve appearance. Treatments can remove moles, age spots, scars, unwanted hair, and spider veins. By using a combination of chemical peels and laser treatments, dermatologists can separate and remove top layers of skin to reveal smoother, less wrinkled skin, which is more even in color.

Staff at the Dermatology Department can also reduce the appearance of wrinkles in the forehead or at the corners of the eyes (i.e., crows’ feet) with botulinum toxic (i.e., botox) therapy. These soft tissue fillers are used to combat the aging process through contouring. Fillers reduce the appearance of fine lines and deep folds that may emerge in the jaw line, brow, or bridge of the nose. Fillers can also plump lips, fill hollow cheeks, and improve scars. Facial scaring from acne or injury is commonly treated with soft tissue filler techniques.
