Patient Center > Is Your Dermatologist Board Certified?
Floridians seeking treatment of skin cancer and skin conditions would be wise to determine the training of their provider. Patients seeking skin care in Florida may receive care by nurse practitioners, physician assistants, aestheticians, or other health care providers who are not physicians. Training programs are being developed, for example, to allow nurse practitioners to achieve a doctorate degree in nursing. These nurses and others are not physicians.
Health care consumers in Florida can rely on board certified dermatology physicians to provide their skin care. Find out if your provider is even a physician, what specialty your doctor is certified in, and what agency certified him or her. Remember, it's your skin. You should protect your health by entrusting your skin care to a board certified physician dermatologist.
