Get to Know Your Dermatologist

The physicians at Laser and Mohs Dermatology of New York understand that you have many choices when it comes to your skin health and dermatology needs. Additionally, we understand that many of our services are elective, and cosmetic in nature meaning that quality and price are of the utmost importance.

Don’t trust your health and the beauty of your skin to just any aesthetic office or medical spa. No matter what practice you choose to visit, it is important to ask lots of questions in order to understand the qualifications and experience of the professional you are working with.

Good examples of questions to use when interviewing Laser and Mohs Dermatology of New York or any other medical provider can be found below:

  • Are you a physician? Where did you attend medical school and where did you complete your medical residency?

  • Did you finish your residency in dermatology or another field of medicine? Have your practiced other areas of medicine before, besides dermatology or cosmetic surgery?

  • Are you board certified in any medical specialties? Which ones?

  • How many of this procedure have you performed in the past? How often do you perform this procedure?

  • Is there another procedure you would recommend to correct my condition instead of the one that I am requesting?

  • Are there any side effects to this procedure? Any potential for pain that I should be aware of?

  • How long will this procedure take and how do you manage recovery and complications?
