MEDICAL TREATMENTS

Sheperd Integrative Dermatology offers medical care to help restore skin, nails and hair to a healthy state. As a board-certified dermatologist and dermatopathologist, Dr. Sheperd specializes in diagnosing disorders of the skin, including melanoma and other types of disease that can lead to serious adverse effects. Our treatment options combine conventional and complementary therapies for symptom relief and improving functionality far beyond the skin’s surface.

Skin Cancer & Mole Screening

A skin cancer and mole screening is a routine and painless visual inspection of your skin to detect changes that could signal cancer. If you notice any suspicious spots on your skin or anything changing, itching or bleeding, contact us immediately.

Dermasurgery & Growth Removal

Our treatment for removing growths involves minimally invasive techniques. These techniques are carefully selected to excise the growth while preserving the surrounding skin to minimize scarring.

Eczema Care and Treatment

With proper treatment, eczema and its associated conditions can be controlled. Our patients benefit from a comprehensive skin evaluation and treatment plan tailored to reduce symptoms and control the body’s inflammatory response.

Rashes

Understanding the cause of inflammation is equally important to finding an effective therapy. We identify the underlying cause of inflammation, help patients make necessary environmental adjustments, and prescribe the most appropriate course of treatment.

Psoriasis

We draw on years of expertise to customize psoriasis treatments according to patient needs. We combine medicine and light therapy to provide optimal relief – no matter what the type or severity of your psoriasis.

Acne Treatment and Rosacea

We take a multi-faceted approach to treat moderate to severe acne for adolescents and adults. Our treatment plans are customized to target the underlying cause of breakouts, restore skin to its natural appearance, and prevent future breakouts from occurring.

Hair & Nail Treatment

At Sheperd Integrative Dermatology, we diagnose both hair and nail conditions and designate the most appropriate course of treatment.

Dermatopathology

Dr. Sheperd is trained in analyzing and interpreting the results of skin biopsies. Dermatopathology combines both dermatology (the diagnosis and treatment of skin, hair and nail diseases) and pathology (identification of diseases microscopically to ensure a correct diagnosis.
