Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Abrahamson "Patients are the reason we exist !!!l We strive to serve their needs medically, surgically, and cosmetically.  Greater Des Moines Dermatology feels that if your going to a specialist that you should actually see a specialist.    We do not employee physician extenders or nurse practitioners that see patients on their own.   It is not fair to patients to represent physician extenders or nurse practitioners as specialists.....Your primary care physician has extensively more academic training and rigor.  A Board Certified Dermatologist has spent 4 years in residency academic training with 3 years specifically focused on cutaneous disease and therapy.."
