Dermatology Associates of Wisconsin, S.C.
I had to wait 20 minutes to see the Doctor which seems to be typical of all Doctor Appointments, not just at Dermatology Associates. When my name was called I only waited a few minutes before the Doctor came into the exam room. She found a suspicious mole, did a biopsy and I was contacted with the results within a 48 hours. An excision was performed a week later. The Exam Doctor, Surgeon and support staffs were all very friendly and professional during my visits. In talking to friends who have had similar exams it was suggested my exam may not have been as complete as it could have been which I will ask about at my next appointment. Overall I was very satisfied with Dermatology Associates of Appleton.
Tips & Advices
Cosmetic dermatology is a specialization of the field, which focuses on a person's appearance.
See a dermatologist if you have recurring problems with your skin, hair, nails or mucous membranes, or for any concerns about cosmetic appearance. Medicare patients will likely pay 20 percent of the Medicare-approved amount if the health care provider covers dermatology for a medical skin condition.
Dermatology tends to be covered by insurance if it is deemed a "medical necessity." The amount of coverage and cost depends on the specific health plan.
There is such a thing as a pediatric dermatologist--medical professionals who treat children from birth through adolescence - usually for skin conditions most common in younger patients. Regular dermatologists can also work with children of various ages.
Dermatologists can perform biopsies, dermabrasion, hair removal, laser surgery, cosmetic injections (like Botox), Mohs surgery for skin cancer, skin grafts, vein therapy, and chemical peels, to name a few.
