Maitland, FL (PRWEB) March 22, 2016
ADCS Clinics (“ADCS”) announced it has completed the acquisition of Fair Oaks Skincare in Fair Oaks, Virginia; a dermatology practice owned by Brenda Dintiman M.D. and Reem Tadros M.D, both board certified dermatologists.
Dr. Brenda Dintiman has been caring for dermatology patients since 1991 and has been practicing medicine since 1985. Her interest in medicine developed early, inspired by family members, many of whom work in the medical field. As a schoolgirl she had the opportunity to test her mettle, both in her aunt’s dental practice and spending hours with her uncle, a radiologist, talking about medicine. She grew to love the field of medicine, and whether reading x-rays or honing her bedside manner, her passion shone through.
During the early years, she trained in Hawaii and New Mexico further developing her skills. Later, as a new physician in the Northern Virginia area, she founded the Fair Oaks Skin Care Center. Dr. Dintiman recognizes that dermatology requires understanding and commitment to both clinical medicine and cosmetic treatment to fully care for the patient. She has remained committed to her patients and to her medical art and has served as a strong advocate for medical and cosmetic advancements, which she integrates in to her own daily practice of medicine.
She has volunteered as a physician and as a member on the board of Project Access of Northern Virginia (PANV), which provides pro-bono specialty care for underprivileged patients in the area. Elected president of the Medical Society of Northern Virginia (MSNVA) in 2012, she remains a dedicated member in the hopes of bettering the medical community for both physicians and patients and improving access for patients in underserved areas.
Throughout her medical career as a dermatologist, Dr. Dintiman has understood that limited access to care is a significant issue that must be overcome in order to improve the medical community. With this in mind, she explored options that could minimize this problem in a specific area, Virginia. The results of her persistent research lead directly to the innovative and successful programs of tele-health and specifically tele-dermatology. She participated in telemedicine for the American Association Dermatology (AAD) and, in 2010 she was given the Presidential Award for Volunteerism in Telemedicine. As a member of the American Telemedicine Association (ATA) and other telehealth groups, Dr. Dintiman became a driving force in the establishment of the tele-dermatology program DermUtopia.
In 2014, Dr. Dintiman testified at a House Hearing on Telemedicine in support of further advancing telemedicine and access of care:
“I have seen first-hand a number of patients that could have had the consultation done virtually and prevented an onerous trip to the office, to an urgent care or to the emergency room. For example, included are specific patients who could have a tele-dermatology consultation and receive treatment at their home or facility. An 89-year-old woman who lives alone at home, with no family in the area, and who would need to be brought to the doctor via wheelchair and transport vehicle, may be more easily evaluated via telemedicine. A nursing home patient with dementia, who requires a nursing aid and transportation and coordination costs from the nursing home to evaluate a leg ulcer or an early infection, could be effectively evaluated via tele-dermatology. Finally, a 2 year old with severe eczema and infections who cannot get in to see a dermatologist due to lack of access to a Medicaid dermatologist and inability for parents to transport her during their work hours across the city, two bus rides away, could be easily evaluated and/or monitored via tele-dermatology.” – Dr. Brenda Dintiman
Dr. Dintiman has consistently won Top Doc awards. Washingtonian Magazine has awarded Dr. Dintiman this prestigious award each year since 1999 through 2015. In 2016 she also received the Top Doc Award from Northern Virginia Magazine.
The MSNVA Foundation awards volunteer physicians for their dedicated services and support of Project Access of Northern Virginia (PANV). Doctor Dintiman has received top awards for donating her time over the years.
