What can I expect during a medical dermatology appointment?
You can expect a compassionate and patient-focused evaluation when you come in for a medical dermatology appointment at Idaho Skin Institute. Your dermatologist asks detailed questions about your concerns and symptoms, medical and family history, and the type of medications and supplements you take.
Then, they closely evaluate your skin, focusing on any areas showing signs of disease. If needed, they may take a biopsy of your skin lesion or growth to confirm or rule out a diagnosis.
After the evaluation, your dermatologist develops a personalized treatment plan to address your skin, hair, or nail condition. They schedule regular follow-up appointments to monitor your condition and adjust your treatment plan as needed.
