Doctors of Osteopathic medicine

Video Transcript: Medical Dermatology

Doctors of Osteopathic medicine are trained to pay attention to the patient as a whole, not to just treat the symptoms. We are trained to actually find the root cause and see if we can address that. This practice has two philosophies; one is to treat everybody as a person, not a disease. Two, to have customer care and customer service better than anyone has experienced anywhere.

Whether you are having a big cancer removed off of your forehead, whether you are having botox injected to get the wrinkles off the sides of your face, it doesn’t matter. Everybody is treated the same, everybody is given a relaxed, peaceful environment, everybody is treated like a person, and everybody is going to receive unbelievable, unsurpassed customer care from us.

“I have a chronic skin disease that went undiagnosed for quite some time. I had been to nine doctors. I had gotten in touch with Dr. Anderson and came in and saw him, and he knew exactly what it was right away. He got me back to the point where I was able to not only work, but start traveling again. I was just so pleased because it was the best level of care I had ever had. I walk in the door, and they know who I am. They say, “Hey Dan, How’s it going?” I got a card from the clinic when I got engaged. It’s just very much a family environment, and a pleasant environment to be in. That, combined with all the care and treatment I get from the staff makes for a nice package. I talk to people and tell them that they need to come see Dr. Anderson. My friends and family, I have told all of them about Colorado Dermatology Institute.”   -Dan, Patient

Be smart about sun protection. The other thing that’s really important is, all women are supposed to do monthly breast exams, all men are supposed to do monthly testicular exams. Spend an extra 30 to 60 seconds a month just looking at their bodies. So if people notice something that’s changing, something that is not healing, something that just doesn’t look right, they need to seek care because it is so much easier to take care of things when they’re small then when they’re big.

One of my primary goals for my patients is that their skin doesn’t interfere, in any way, with them being able to express their soul. From a medical, surgical, cosmetic point-of-view, I would like to help my patients get to that point where nothing is hindering them with their skin, hair, and nails from being all that they can be. That is so very, very, important in medicine to be able to help somebody to feel their best; help someone to feel cared for, help someone to be comfortable in their skin.
