What is a Physician Assistant (PA)?

Physician assistants (PAs) are healthcare professionals licensed to practice medicine with physician supervision. Physician assistants receive extensive training in the many medical specialties.


The PAs and physicians here at Advanced Dermatology work as a team to provide high quality healthcare.

Physician Assistants are licensed to perform physical exams, diagnosis and treat dermatologic conditions, prescribe medications, and perform minor surgeries.

Please feel comfortable in knowing that our providers work closely with one another and that our Physician Assistants have been trained comprehensively in dermatology. Our office works as a team to best serve your needs.

We believe that having PAs in our dermatology practice will enable us to provide you with greater accessibility and prompt care and will greatly benefit our patients.
