DERMATOLOGY

At Decatur County Hospital we have made it our mission to provide exceptional care, close to home. We offer a number of services and clinics, including dermatology. Dermatology is the branch of medicine dealing with the skin. It is a specialty with both medical and surgical aspects. A dermatologist is a specialist medical doctor who manages diseases and other issues related to skin, hair, nails, and some cosmetic problems, such as hair loss and scars.

Russell Kilpatrick, MD, a board-certified dermatologist and Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology (FAAD), will be providing services four (4) consecutive days each month and will be able to diagnose and treat skin related problems from acne to skin cancers. He is also capable of doing on-site surgeries to correct certain dermatologic issues.

Although many over the counter treatments and home remedies can be successful, there may be times when it just isn’t enough. A dermatologist can give you a more tailored and effective treatment. If you notice moles or skin growths changing in shape, color, texture or size, make an appointment today. Some moles and skin growths develop into skin cancer, so an expert look at a suspicious area could save your life.

The following services are available in our clinic:
  • Skin cancer
  • Rashes
  • Psoriasis
  • Acne
  • Warts
  • Moles
  • Eczema
