Find a Dermatologist
A dermatologist is a doctor who specializes in treating conditions that affect the skin, hair, and nails. After earning a medical degree and completing an internship, a dermatologist receives three more years of specialty medical training, becoming an expert dedicated to skin, hair and nails. Many dermatologists have general practices and see patients with all types of skin concerns. Some dermatologists gain additional training and expertise in a specific area of dermatology, such as pediatrics, surgery, or cosmetics. They may go on to have a practice that specializes in one of these areas.
