Warts - A wart is a virus infection on the surface of the skin. It is contagious so it can spread on the patient and to people who come in contact with it. A dermatologist can usually treat it by freezing it with liquid nitrogen. There are also topical medications and surgical methods.
Moles/Nevi - This is a benign cluster of nevus cells which can be raised or flat. It should be one color, either one shade of brown or skin colored. If it has irregular color or different colors in it, it may be abnormal or even malignant and should be biopsied or excised.
Skin Tags - Skin tags are hanging pieces of skin especially common in areas of friction such as the base of the neck, armpits and the groin. They are not contagious. They can be surgically excised.
Seborrheic Keratoses - Brown, scaly growths which usually appear after the age of 40. They can be few or numerous and can occur on any part of the body. They can be easily frozen off in the office and do not require surgery.

What makes me different from many other dermatologists is that I spend the entire time in the exam room listening to you the patient and examining your skin problem. I do not have a computer in the exam room to distract me from your concerns. This allows me to focus on your skin condition and to give you the correct diagnosis and treatment. Dr. Brody
They went out of their way to make me feel special and appreciated. I will definitely recommend them to people I know. Cori
