      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. Massa's Care Philosophy

      I see patients for general dermatologic problems, but my special area of expertise is actually cosmetic dermatology. In cosmetic dermatology, I think we have two arms. The proactive arm are people who want to take good care of their skin: be proactive about things, try to keep their skin looking as nice as possible, as youthful as possible for as long as possible. And in the corrective arm of things, we treat problems that have already occurred, or difficulties that bother patients like acne scarring, like excessive hair growth, like unwanted brown spots, red spots, leg veins - things that come with age that bother people that they would like to improve. Patients always have a list of things that they're concerned about. And what we generally try to do is take the thing that they're most concerned about first, try to improve that. And once we get that at a place where they want it to be, then we can move on to the second and the third thing.
