Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take me to be seen?
When we receive a referral from your primary care provider, you will receive a call within two business days to schedule an appointment with one of our providers. Your scheduled appointment date and time is dependent on the severity of your dermatologic condition; therefore, you may have to wait up to five weeks to be seen.

How long is my first appointment and what will be done for my dermatologic condition?
Your first appointment will be a thorough exam by the dermatology provider and may take 20-40 minute depending on your dermatologic condition.

Can I get a referral for my child to get a wart removed?
Your primary care provider can treat this at his or her office. You can still get a referral to see our specialty clinic, but we do suggest you try over-the- counter treatments before you visit our clinic, especially in the case of younger children. Our treatment for warts is cryotherapy, which is painful and results in blistering and will take multiple treatments.

Who can get phototherapy and when can I start the treatment?
Treatment is ordered by our providers if it is determined that your dermatological condition will benefit from this therapy. You may start the therapy treatment right away.
