      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Yag-Howard is an expert in surgical and aesthetic techniques for optimal cosmetic outcome.  She lectures nationally and has authored multiple articles in national peer-reviewed journals teaching her techniques to other dermatologists.  Perhaps it is because Dr. Yag-Howard is a visual artist with a perfectionistic tendency and a passion for her profession that her wonderful patients are highly satisfied with their results and she is honored with their dedication and appreciation.
