Adult General Dermatology

Adults can have a variety of skin conditions that require treatment. Medical Dermatology Specialists treats everything from acne and bacterial skin infections to rare and complicated conditions like bullous pemphigoid and psoriatic arthritis.

Sometimes skin diseases develop quickly and can lead to detrimental affects for people. As a board-certified dermatologist with additional training in acute dermatologic conditions, Drs. Ackerman and Kessler have the skills needed to treat difficult skin diseases. They conduct rounds at two local hospitals for patients that are unable to visit the office.

We strive to understand how a particular skin condition affects each adult dermatology patient as an individual. This helps us assess the situation, provide the appropriate treatment and ideally help patients reach better quality of life after working with us.
