The skin is considered the largest organ and serves the important role of both protecting and supporting the body. Dermatologists not only specialize in the study of skin, hair and nails, but also have the expertise to know how disorders in these areas may correlate with issues in other organs of the body.
People are commonly referred to the dermatologist for significant problems with their skin. The dermatologist will review the history of the condition, inspect the affected area, possibly conduct a biopsy, diagnose and recommend treatment.
