The skin, which is considered the largest organ, serves the important role of both protecting and supporting the body. Dermatologists specialize in the study of skin, hair and nails, and have the expertise to know how disorders in these areas may correlate with malfunctions 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 take a biopsy, diagnose and recommend treatment.
The Whitehorse General Hospital has two visiting dermatologists.
