Your skin is an organ that needs a lifetime of care. Let Leon Medical Centers dermatologists, along side our contracted team of dermatologists specialists help you with the smallest to largest skin concerns. Your skin changes with every stage of life and we specialize in treating skin conditions that often affect older adults. You’ll get the latest skin care technology and treatments, with the respectful, gentle approach you appreciate at LEON.
Our dermatology team includes talented:
- Nurse practitioners
- Physician assistants
Skin care is important for a healthy life. That’s why we take time to teach you and your caregivers about self-exams for the skin. You’ll learn how to look at your skin and use mirrors to check for any changes. If you’re not able to do this, we’ll teach your caregivers what to look for. The sooner you spot skin changes, the better you can keep small problems from becoming big ones.
We’re happy to drive you to and from dermatology appointments.
