Dermatological Concerns

As we grow older, many of the changes our bodies experience are seen and felt in our skin, the body’s largest and most visible organ.  It becomes drier, more wrinkled, and it may undergo changes in color, texture, and tone.  Spots and growths may form.  Healing takes place more slowly.

Some of these changes are natural, unavoidable, and harmless.  Others are annoying or painful and can be remedied.  Still other changes in the skin may indicate skin cancer or other serious problems and require prompt medical attention.  Dr. Murphy and his staff are trained to recognize these changes and implement the proper treatment plans.
