Dermatology Q & A

What is a dermatologist?

A dermatologist is a medical professional who specializes in the diagnosis and medical management of skin conditions. Skin conditions are a common complaint and concern among patients when they go see their primary care physician. However, many primary care physicians haven’t received the training necessary to accurately diagnose and treat these skin issues.

Seeing the need for better care for his patients, Dr. Rowland received additional training in dermatology so he could take care of your skin conditions.

When should I see a dermatologist?

Your skin is the largest organ in your body and protects your internal organs from outside invaders. You should seek dermatological care from Dr. Rowland and his team at Boca General & Family Medicine if you have any concerns about the look or health of your skin, such as the development of an itchy rash or a strange-looking mole.

Skin cancer affects more people in the United States than any other type of cancer. Florida may be the Sunshine State, but those extra rays aren’t a friend to your skin. To help you stay on top of your skin health, Dr. Rowland also conducts skin biopsies to check for skin cancer.
