This content was provided by Dr. Crutchfield III "Less is more. I like to do lots of little things that create very dramatic and satisfying results. When it comes to cosmetic dermatology, I tend not to emphasize any one particular treatment. I like to carefully listen to my patients and find out what bothers them. I then create a program that blends several techniques to give them the results they desire. As a Clinical Professor of Dermatology, I teach to strengthen my specialty and keep my skills sharp. As a perfectionist, I am constantly learning to provide the highest quality of care I can to my patients."
