I've read all of the negative reviews for this practice and just wanted to add my 2 cents worth in since opinions are like body parts, everyone has them. I was diagnosed with CLL cancer in 2010 and my Oncologist suggested that since some cancers as far as how it relates to the body sort of bring on other cancers, I should seek out a Dermatologist and have a full body scan annually. There was a large practice, which I will not name, that was located in Memorial North Park Medical Center and I started seeing a couple of their of their Nurse Practitioners. I went each year since and each time was pronounced for the most part clean with no Carcinomas for about four years. Since I had been passed to a female N.P. for the past couple of years I felt a little uncomfortable with her doing the full body scan, I guess I'm sort of a prude in that department so I was seeking out another practice where I could actually see a real live doctor instead of a N.P.. That is when I found the perfect fit for me with Dr. Mark Tusa at the Chattanooga Skin & Cancer Clinic, he hasn't been onboard with C.S.C.C. but for a couple of years and I was so lucky that I was able to get him to accept me as a new patient. Well to say the least he has helped extend my life by years - the first time I walked in and he did his scan he requested 4 biopsies from his nurse and of the four three turned out to be Squamose Cell Carcinomas (pretty serious) and it was apparent to me that these didn't develop just in the past year since my last scan at the other Dermatologist practice. Since those first three just 3 months ago he has also removed several more. He attended and graduated with honors from Chicago College Of Medicine And Surgery in 2004, and I promise he's unlike any other doctor you will ever meet - with his concern for his patients he goes out of his way to call you day, night or weekends to personally give you the results of your biopsies as well as tell you that if you need to talk with him after hours about a problem that may possibly develop from the surgery just call his answering service and he will respond (although with his and his surgical nurses detail to attention I've never had any issues from any of his surgeries). I'm reluctant to spread the word on how good he is since at some point I can see him being overwhelmed with requests from new patients but he deserves the praise and he is a great asset for Chattanooga Skin & Cancer Clinic and will be for years to come!!!

The front desk staff wasn't the friendliest. I won't be going back because i went in for itchy acne and was prescribed two medications and i ended up ten times worse! It aged my skin, turned me red, made the itching horribly worse and I was miserable! I stopped the meds right away but it took weeks for my face to heal. My son said it made me look old! The meds had bleaching agents in it! How is that healthy let alone safe to put on your face?! I will never go back to a dermatologist because of this nightmare visit. Their office staff could learn to be nicer to the patients that basically pay their paychecks....

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.
