People seeking information about acne can now get that information from their most trusted source, dermatologists.
The recently launched Acne-Doctors (http://www.acne-doctors.com) Website provides in-depth content to help patients better manage their acne. The content is written by experts in skin care, and covers a wide range of practical acne advice. Key portions of the service include Acne News, which covers acne updates, such as new medications and practice guidelines, Acne Treatment, which covers various treatment options based on severity and other individual factors as well as information on Retinoids for Acne, Acne Procedures, Acne Scars and Acne Skin Care, which covers basic skin care tips for people with acne.
The Acne-Doctors Website is part of the FromYourDoctor (http://www.fromyourdoctor.com) service from Vivacare (vivacare.com) Inc. The FromYourDoctor service enables physicians to easily create their own customizable patient education resource for their practice, including a Patient Education Library with patient handouts and clinical images, and a Patient eNewsletter. Physicians can use the service to provide their patients with convenient access to helpful health information that reinforces key clinical messages.
For instance, Gerald Goldberg, M.D., a dermatologist in Tucson Arizona, uses the FromYourDoctor service to publish his handouts and medical photographs online. His handout on acne (http://dermatology.fromyourdoctor.com/arizona/tucson/pimaderm/health/topic.do?title=Acne+Basics&t=2142) provides details regarding his personal approach to acne care.
The Acne-Doctors Website highlights those dermatologists that use the FromYourDoctor service who have written particularly helpful information for their patients regarding acne. For example, Jeffrey Dover, M.D., a dermatologist in Chestnut Hill, MA and author of "The Youth Equation", wrote a particularly in-depth summary of acne scars http://www.acne-doctors.com/acne-procedures.html that is published on Acne-Doctors.
The Acne-Doctors is the first in a family of consumer-oriented health information Websites authored by practicing physicians.
