This is where we diagnose any type of skin- related health complication that a patient may be experiencing. Some examples are patients suffering from skin cancer or a dermatological condition that requires medical attention. A patient may be suffering from cancerous growths on or just beneath their skin. Dr. Wang can surgically or topically treat these lesions. In most cases, these types of health complications will require some form of intervention to determine the best course of action depending on the skin issue.
Treatment of skin diseases can be done through surgery in the case of cancerous growths and lesions or by using prescribed drugs and medications in the cases of dermatological conditions. Sometimes natural treatments such as vitamins, changes in diet and light treatment may be helpful. The best form of treatment will be determined after various vigorous tests and screenings are done by Dr. Wang in order to get to the root of the problem.
