Board certification should be one of your top considerations when choosing a doctor. Board certification is an official recognition given to doctors who have met specific requirements set by national medical specialty boards in the United States.
Board certification indicates that a doctor is highly qualified in the medical field in which he or she practices. A board-certified doctor is more likely than a non-board-certified doctor to have the most current skills and knowledge about how to treat your medical condition.
We offer a variety of medical and cosmetic services and procedures. We strive to offer a full range of procedures, devices, therapies and techniques. In many cases we have technology you cannot find elsewhere in the state – including West Virginia University.
We offer a variety of procedures to treat various medical conditions. We perform in office excisional surgery to treat and remove benign skin lesions (moles, cysts, etc.) and malignant skin cancers. We also treat a number of benign skin lesions with cryosurgery (freezing) and electrodessication (burning).
In addition to the above common procedures, we offer a number of additional services to treat common medical conditions.
We offer photodynamic therapy to treat actinic keratoses ( precancerous lesions) as well as acne and rosacea. This procedure offers great efficacy, a positive cosmetic outcome and minimal down time. For this procedure we use Levulan aminolevulinic acid. This procedure is often covered by insurance, including Medicare, to treat actinic keratoses.
We also have two Narrow Band UVB (NBUVB) booths available to treat patients with psoriasis, eczema, mycosis fungoides as well as a number of other conditions. For patients who have involvement in limited areas, we have an Excimer laser, which delivers similar NBUVB light in a laser format. These procedures are often covered by insurance, including Medicare, to treat psoriasis and occasionally vitiligo. To learn more about these light therapies, check out the phototherapy bookletfrom the National Psoriasis foundation.
We also offer a number of cosmetic procedures to our patients. While this is not often the primary focus of our visits, patients often express interest in enhancing their beauty and slowing down the aging process. We do our best to answer cosmetic questions during a regular visit, but often a cosmetic consultation that focuses on solely addressing cosmetic concerns is helpful. All of our cosmetic procedures are performed by the doctor, not by a nurse or other staff. The cosmetic procedures we perform are generally safe and relatively painless when performed by a trained physician.
In most cases we emphasize a healthy skin care regimen, utilizing a retinoid and sunscreen as the best first step prior to recommending any cosmetic procedures. Prior to the procedure we will review your procedure with you in detail, describing the realistic potential outcome and any possible risks involved.
To describe our cosmetic procedures and offerings, we as well as others often use the terms… REJUVENATE, RELAX, RESTORE, RENEW, REVITALIZE,
REJUVENATE. A more youthful appearance begins with a healthy skin care regimen. We offer a full line of skin care products including Dr Obagi's new skin care line ZO Skin Health. Using these products, along with a retinoid, will provide the foundation and rejuvenation that many patients desire without the need for addition procedures.
RELAX. BOTOX works by relaxing the impulses to facial expression muscles. When the muscles do not contract as much, the skin stays smooth and unwrinkled. Botox is injected into the skin in a simple procedure lasting less than 5 minutes. BOTOX® is safe, fast and simple when quality BOTOX is used and the procedure is performed by a trained and qualified dermatologist. Dr. Rosenberger was trained to administer BOTOX during her residency and received a certificate from her training at a BOTOX®Cosmetic National Education Facility. There are a number of Botulinum Toxins available for use today. Dr Rosenberger primarily uses BOTOX, but also has Xeomin available to use as well.
RESTORE. We can restore volume to the aging or thin face using a variety of safe, effective and long lasting fillers that are now available. We offer a variety of fillers used alone or in combination to meet your needs, including Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus and Sculptra. Traditionally fillers were most commonly used to restore volume to the lips and to smooth the lines and folds around the mouth. Dr. Rosenberger was trained to restore volume to the aging face using a variety of fillers during her residency. Over the past 10 years the focus has shifted some to maintaining a natural shape and structure to the face, particular the cheeks, as opposed to just filling lines. When focusing on restoring large amounts of volume to the face, Dr Rosenberger usually uses Sculptra.
RENEW. Chemical peels are applied to remove the superficial layers of the skin, creating a fresher and more youthful appearance. Peels are designed for the individual patient's needs, and vary from mild to more aggressive formulas. We perform glycolic, salicylic and trichloroacetic acid peels. Chemical peels are used to remove sun damaged skin, even out skin tone and pigmentation, improve fine lines, and treat some forms of acne and actinic keratoses. Often, we recommend a healthy skin care regimen and an at home peel from ZO Skin Health called Invisapeel.
REVITALIZE. Lasers and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)– Lasers act by specifically targeting and altering desired structures in the skin by harnessing the power of light. In the office we have both a laser (1064 NdYag) that we use to target blood vessels to treat rosacea, birthmarks and facial and leg veins. Our laser can also be used to target the pigment in hair for laser hair removal. IPL is an additional form of light therapy that provides a broader band of light to target multiple skin irregularities at once. These procedures are performed by Dr Rosenberger.
No malpractice history found for West Virginia.
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor’s board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades non-disciplinary board action history go?
