Sarasota, Florida (PRWEB) August 07, 2012
University Park Dermatology & Medical Spa, a leading Sarasota dermatology clinic and spa, is proud to announce Medical Director Dr. David Sax's selection as one of Sarasota Magazine's and Castle Connolly Medical's Top Doctors. Candidates were selected from a list of physicians nominated by their peers, and further vetted by Castle Connolly Medical.
The Castle Connolly Medical list of Top Doctors represents some of the most acclaimed and admired physicians in the United States. Doctors are carefully screened to provide the best recommendations for consumers. While education and training are strong factors for consideration, Castle Connolly Medical further curates their list of Top Doctors by selecting the industry's most admired, innovative, and influential doctors. The list essentially includes the physicians other doctors study and look up to.
In addition to his recognition as one of Castle Connolly Medical's Top Doctors, Sarasota Magazine highlighted Dr. Sax's achievement in developing an innovative technique for treating extreme cases of psoriasis. Dr. Sax describes the treatment as a series of “biologic injections” used to precisely target the root cause of psoriasis. This procedure was even effective on a patient with psoriasis plaque affecting roughly 70% of his body. After just a few months of weekly “biologic injections,” the patient's psoriasis had disappeared except for a few small patches on his knees and elbows.
According to Dr. Sax, the standard pharmaceutical compounds used to treat psoriasis were intended for general use. These drugs fail to target the cause of psoriasis, and only mask the symptoms—some of these drugs can even cause liver damage. Dr. Sax designed these “biologic injections” specifically for psoriasis, and focused on ensuring the treatment produced precise results with fewer side effects. The development of this procedure is just one of the reasons Dr. David Sax is one of Sarasota's Top Doctors.
