1. Where did the name, Verum Cutis Dermatology, come from?
The name translates to True Skin in Latin. Throughout my career as a dermatologist, I feel that patients most often seem to seek assistance to get their skin back to their own true baseline of health or to improve the health and appearance of their skin to the best true state possible. The underlying root language of most medical terminology is Latin and it seemed quite fitting to tribute the language in combination with patient desires to match my goals for patient care.
2. What is a D.O.?
A Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery is a physician who has completed comprehensive medical training with a focus on treating every aspect of the patient as a whole. The philosophy focuses on the integration of the mind, body, and spirit as all contributing to one’s medical health and overall well-being. This unique philosophy has special focus on the body’s innate ability to heal itself and to support the patient in order to best promote healing.
3. What does it mean to be Board Certified?
Board-Certification by the American Board of Dermatology means that the physician caring for you has the highest level of training, expertise, knowledge, and skills in all aspects of dermatology care. Board-Certified Dermatologists provide advanced medical care for skin, hair, and nail conditions.
* Who you trust with your skin matters. Ensure that you seek the most qualified professional to care for your skin. Look for a board certified dermatologist to receive the highest quality care.
