Your skin, hair and nails are the messenger for what is happening with your overall health. Paying special attention to changes is essential. At Vanguard, our broad range of medical dermatology services provide treatments for rashes, spider veins, hair loss (alopecia) and more.

My experience with the staff and doctor was definitely 5 star, but the 1 hour wait is what dropped the rating down. I have never had less than an hour wait time which is extremely frustrating. I hope next time when appointment are made and seen at the same time.”

Best Derm ever! Speaks millennial!”
I had a very pleasant experience. Although I arrived 30 minutes late, they made accommodations for me which I very much appreciated. The reception desk was very professional and helped me register as a new patient. The establishment was IMMACULATE! Additionally the medical assistant was personable and professional. My doctor cared about my comfort and handled my skin accordingly. I also appreciated being informed and educated about my condition and treatment plan. Some doctors have a tendency to talk down to you as though you are too dumb to learn about your ailment. All in all, I definitely recommend this practice!”
I was seen very quickly yet efficiently and had all of my concerns addressed. The doctor was amazing and super informative! Showed genuine concern and desire to help”
