Finding a qualified dermatologist in Katy
A dermatologist specializes in treating disorders of the skin – and a bit more. Dermatologists are also trained in conditions affecting mucous membranes (inside the eyelids, nose, and mouth), nails, and hair. They help patients enhance their complexions, hair, and bodies.
Some have mastered dermatologic surgery and become Board certified. Dr. Seymour Weaver offers this level of care. Let’s look at what that means to the people of Katy, Texas and the surrounding area.
What is a dermatologist?
A dermatologist earns a bachelor’s degree in college, and then takes additional training to become a medical doctor or doctor of osteopathic medicine. That is followed by a one-year internship (hands-on clinical experience), and a residency program in dermatology lasting at least three years. During residency, the doctor becomes skilled at diagnosing more than 3,000 dermatologic diseases and gets some surgical training.
Dermatologists are qualified to treat patients of all ages. Some choose to specialize in pediatric care or cosmetic dermatology, which is primarily for adults.
What is a Board-certified dermatologist?
Board certified indicates that in addition to all of the training mentioned above, following residency, the doctor met the certification criteria of the American Board of Dermatology. He or she has a license to practice medicine, as well as passing stringent examinations illustrating knowledge, experience, and skill. The exams are retaken every ten years due to the importance of staying current with medical advances.
Dr. Weaver’s Board certification is your assurance that he has earned the highest level of qualification to provide dermatology care to patients in Katy.
