5 Tips For Choosing The Right Tampa Dermatologist

March 11, 2021

Dermatologists are specially qualified to treat skin, hair, and nails. There’s no denying that choosing the right Tampa dermatologist for your needs requires time and effort.

At Bay Dermatology, our skilled specialists are trained to identify and address your concerns, whether they are medical or cosmetic. Despite the fact that all dermatologists go through years of education and training, they’re not all created equal. The following 5 tips can help you choose the best dermatologist for you.

Read Patient Reviews

 Reading what other people have to say can provide information into how the doctor cares for their patients and how the medical practice is operated. Patient reviews can reflect people’s experience with wait times, environment, scheduling appointments and office staff friendliness. Reviews are always a good way to see if the office is a good fit for you.

Research the Dermatologist’s Credentials

Board certification will be one of the most important factors to consider when you are trying to find a dermatologist. This will tell you that the doctor has the necessary skills, experience, and training to provide healthcare in dermatology.

Consider the Dermatologist’s Experience

Experience matters when you are looking at the issues with the health and the appearance of your nails, hair or skin. The more the experience of the dermatologist, like the physicians at Bay Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery, the better results with the procedure or condition. Fellowship training in a subspecialty like hair and nail disorders or skin cancer is extremely important.

Evaluate Communication Style

Choose a dermatologist that listens to you and uses effective questioning skills to fully understand your reason for the visit. Make sure you feel comfortable with the information they are providing and understand any further treatment you may require.

Know What Insurance Covers

Insurance coverage is a practical matter. It is a good idea to choose a dermatologist who participates in your insurance plan.  In addition to considering experience, credentials and outcomes, you’ll want to minimize out-of-pocket surprises.
