Many people are drawn to Texas for its moderate climate and abundance of sunshine. At the same time, the sun’s radiation can damage the skin over a long period of time. Hill Country Dermatology physicians commonly treat all types of sun damaged skin and can provide state of the art skin cancer care. Skin cancers are best treated when diagnosed early and most cancers can be treated in the office. Hill Country dermatology physicians are the experts in skin surgery and use many of the same techniques used by plastic surgeons for repairing the skin.
Hill Country dermatologists are all certified by the American Board of Dermatology. To become a Board Certified Dermatologist many years of training are required.
