Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) September 15, 2010
Arun Venkat, MD, who recently completed a Fellowship in Dermatopathology at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, joined Bethesda’s Dermatology and Clinical Skin Care Center, announced Dr. Roberta F. Palestine, Medical Director. Dr. Venkat joins seven other specialists at the 28 year-old practice which treats everything from acne to skin cancers, as well as providing leading edge cosmetic procedures.
Dr. Venkat completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Texas in Austin and earned his medical degree from Duke University Medical School. He accompanied the medical degree by successfully pursuing a MBA from Duke University. He completed his residency at the University of Iowa prior to moving to Baltimore for his Johns Hopkins Fellowship.
“We are pleased Dr. Venkat will be joining our practice. We are always looking to improve procedures for our patients and his expertise in dermatopathology brings us to the next level of comprehensive service,” said Dr. Palestine.
Only about 25% of practices nationwide offer an in-house Dermatopathology lab which allows Dr. Venkat and our six other Dermatologists to examine a patient as well as directly study any samples collected using microscopic slide technology. This method applies to common skin rashes as well as cancerous skin problems. “This provides more accurate results and a simple in-house advantage for our patients and our practice,” Dr. Venkat reported.
Roberta F. Palestine, M.D. is the founder and medical director of the Dermatology & Clinical Skin Care Center and has been in practice since 1982. Dermatology & Clinical Skin Care Center is the area’s only full service cosmetic and dermatology practice. With offices in Bethesda and Germantown, Maryland, eight board certified physicians treat patients in general dermatology, leading-edge cosmetic procedures, plastic surgery and Mohs cancer surgery. In addition, the Rockledge Med Spa in Bethesda provides high-end services with a focus on anti-aging, sun damage reversal and laser procedures. For more information, see http://www.dermskin.com
