Our highly trained dermatologists in San Antonio and its 26 surrounding counties offer excellent care for adolescent and adult patients suffering from benign or malignant disorders of the skin, hair and nails. These specialized skin doctors are experts in diagnosing and treating everything from skin cancer to everyday skin disorders, like severe acne.
Skin conditions can be embarrassing, which is why our dermatologists are extremely compassionate and sensitive from your initial visit to follow-up appointments.
Our general dermatology services include:
- Severe or mild acne
- Head lice
- Skin tags
- Persistent rashes
Methodist Healthcare’s dermatologists also manage cosmetic disorders of the skin, including hair loss, scars and the skin changes associated with aging.
One of the most common concerns associated with dermatology is the development of the skin cancer known as melanoma. Schedule an appointment with a Methodist Healthcare physician if you are suspicious about the appearance of moles on your body, have noticed a change in size or shape of your moles, or have been exposed to high levels of ultraviolet (UV) radiation. In some cases, seeing a dermatologist can be the difference in finding a cancer early enough to prevent future medical complications. If you have doubts, don’t hesitate: make an appointment.
When do I go to a dermatologist?
If you or your child is experiencing any of these symptoms, consider visiting a dermatologist for evaluation and treatment:
- Discolorations of the skin, particularly on moles
- Severe acne that won’t dissipate with over-the-counter drugs
- A rash or redness of the skin that won’t go away
- Bloody sores that won’t heal
