General dermatology is medical care that focuses primarily on the skin. As a board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Richey can treat any problems that arise in your skin, nails, and hair.
Dr. Richey is also an internal medicine physician with broad-ranging experience across the entire body. So, should you need medical care outside the realm of dermatology, he can expertly assess your needs and refer you to the right provider for that concern.
Just as a general practitioner takes care of problems throughout the human body, Dr. Richey takes care of problems involving the skin, whether it’s the skin on your feet, your head, or anywhere in between. Some of the conditions that general dermatology covers include:
General dermatology also covers many other conditions, as well as the secondary problems that can arise with skin problems (for example, a bacterial infection with severe eczema).
If you notice any new issues with your skin, it’s best to see Dr. Richey sooner rather than later. Some new issues might look fairly minor, for example, a new mole, but, unfortunately, that new mole could be a sign of skin cancer that requires immediate treatment.
If you have any skin issues that cause discomfort, irritation, or embarrassment, there’s no need to live with them. Dr. Richey can immediately find out the cause of your skin issue and help you clear it up quickly.
General dermatology treatments span a broad range. Some common tests and treatments include:
Alongside your in-office care, Dr. Richey helps you make any necessary changes. That may include using better sun protection, avoiding substances that trigger skin breakouts or rashes, or other strategies to avoid skin problems in the future.
