The skin is a human’s largest and fastest growing organ. It protects the other organs, regulates body temperature and permits sensations of touch, heat and cold. Taking care of the skin is one of the most important parts of staying healthy.
At Palm Harbor Dermatology Cancer and Laser Surgery Center, board certified physicians specialize in skin cancer, skin disease, dermatologic conditions and disorders as well as numerous cosmetic procedures to enhance the patient’s natural beauty.
“We provide customized treatments for clients of all ages,” said Palm Harbor Dermatology Operations Manager Karin Moor.
Palm Harbor Dermatology opened in Palm Harbor in 2008. In January 2013, the Palm Harbor Dermatology Brandon Office, previously owned by Teresa Brandt, MD, opened. There is also an office in West Tampa.
Services available include a treatment of a wide variety of skin conditions including acne, rosacea, melanoma, skin tags and eczema. Botox, restylne, laser hair removal, vein treatment, permanent makeup and juvederm are among the cosmetic procedures offered.
“As a medical office we offer a wide range of services from general dermatology exams to medical peels to laser hair treatments. The majority of our patients are seen in the office for general dermatology needs,” said Moor.
One of the practice’s goals is to provide dermatologic care to the community that is based on the most up to date knowledge, using the newest and most exciting technologies.
“Palm Harbor Dermatology strives to treat all of our patients like family. Our phrase is ‘You’ve Never Been Treated So Well.’ We value our patient’s opinions and take their medical care very seriously,” said Moor.
The newest addition to Palm Harbor Dermatology is Anna Shaw, ARNP, PHD who joined the staff in November. She has over five years’ experience in medical, pediatric and cosmetic dermatology.
