Medical Dermatology: Your Skin's Best Friend

Were you referred to Montrose Dermatology by your doctor?

♦ Do you have a concern about a growth or rash on your skin?
Have you had skin cancer and need routine skin checks?
Experiencing hair loss or nail problems?

At Montrose Dermatology we provide comprehensive treatment of diseases of the skin, hair and nails in adults and children. From skin cancer and acne to psoriasis and eczema, a board certified dermatologist will provide you with the highest quality care for these conditions. We also provide preventative options for patients who are concerned about the health of their skin.

We require all new patients to be referred by their primary care physician. If you would like to establish care at our office, ask your primary care physician’s office to fax our office the reason for the referral as well as your contact information, and our staff will contact you to schedule an appointment.

Skin Cancer

Over the last 30 years, there have been more cases of skin cancer than all other types of cancer combined. The Skin Cancer Foundation estimates that one out of five people will develop at least one skin cancer during their lifetime. Early diagnosis and treatment are essential for the best outcomes, and skin checks with your dermatologist are the best way to be proactive. Dr. Raziano can provide most skin cancer treatments in the office, including those that require surgery or other less invasive forms of treatment.

Do you have skin cancer in a cosmetically sensitive area?

Mohs surgery is the gold standard for treatment of skin cancers that are in cosmetically sensitive places such as on the nose, ears, scalp or near the mouth and eyes.

Through a partnership with Mountain West Dermatology in Grand Junction, we are able to offer on-site Mohs surgery in our Montrose office for a limited number of Dr. Raziano’s patients on a monthly basis

Actinic Keratoses or Precancers

Actinic keratoses (AKs, or precancers) are persistently rough areas that develop on chronically sun damaged skin. Left untreated, these lesions can turn into skin cancer. We provide skin checks to identify AKs and treat them either traditional liquid nitrogen therapy (aka cryotherapy) or Blue Light photodynamic treatment for those patients with more extensive leasions.

Acne

Are you struggling with acne? Acne is a distressing condition that affects both teenagers as well as adults; and particularly women.

Whether you have mild acne that only needs topical treatment or more severe acne requiring oral therapy, Montrose Dermatology can create an individualized treatment plan for you.

In addition, to assist patients with the most severe and treatment-resistant acne, we are an iPledge provider for isotretinoin, also known as Accutane.

Psoriasis Phototherapy

Psoriasis is a common chronic skin disease that causes red, dry scaly patches on the skin. It can be limited to the skin of the knees and elbows or be more widespread. It is a disease that can be difficult to treat and frustrating for patients.

Treatment of psoriasis is tailored to the severity of the patient’s disease. Mild disease can be treated with topical creams, while more extensive disease may require treatment with oral or injectable medications or light therapy. Montrose Dermatology is the only office in the area that offers light therapy with narrow band UVB.

Skin Rashes

Do you have an itchy, uncomfortable rash? It is important to identify the cause, and your Montrose dermatologist can provide insight into skin rashes, easing concerns and recommending treatment options to offer relief. Whether you struggle with an unknown allergy or have an underlying medical condition, your medical dermatologist will be able to pinpoint and diagnose the cause and best course of treatment.

I really like Montrose Dermatology. The staff are professional and friendly. The office is clean and cute and centrally located in Montrose. Most of all, I trust Dr. Raziano from skin cancer issues to cosmetic procedures. I am thrilled to have finally found a local dermatologist that I have confidence in. I would definitely recommend Montrose Dermatology to friends and family.

I had a fantastic experience at Montrose Dermatology. I had an annual body check and Dr. Raziano was extremely thorough. She was very nice and informative, and had a great bed side manner. I work as an esthetician in town and recommend all my clients to go to her. The staff is also very friendly. I highly recommend going there for cosmetic, routine checkups and skin care issues.
