Our Certified PAs work closely with a board-certified physician. Physician Assistants in dermatology are able to evaluate the whole patient and often fulfill a key role in early detection and prevention. They perform physical exams, order & interpret lab test, perform non-excisional surgical procedures, prescribe medications and counsel patients on their conditions, prognosis and treatment plans. Like physicians, Certified PAs (PA-C) complete an intensive general medical education, pass rigorous national certification exams and are licensed by state medical boards. Throughout their medical career, PAs stay up-to-date through rigorous ongoing recertification education and assessment requirements.
