SkinSpeaks’ Same Day Dermatology appointments make it fast and easy to schedule a consultation with a skin care expert, who can diagnose and prescribe you the best form of treatment available, whether you require surgery, antibiotics, or medical grade skin care products.
At SkinSpeaks, we like to think of our Minnesota dermatology clinics as the “urgent care” of advanced dermatology. Our team of certified Physician Assistants (PA-C) and Nurse Practitioners (NP) are licensed to diagnose, biopsy, treat, and perform a variety of medical dermatology procedures for all skin emergencies, giving you peace of mind as well as the best personalized treatment plans available!
A physician assistant (PA) is a health professional licensed to practice medicine under the indirect supervision of a physician. SkinSpeaks’ physician assistants specialize in a broad range of medical and cosmetic skin care services that traditionally have been performed by dermatologists. As part of their responsibilities, our physician assistants perform dermatology consultations, order and interpret lab tests, perform skin care procedures, prescribe medications, and diagnosis and treat acute and chronic skin conditions.
At SkinSpeaks, our physician assistants are PA-C (Physician Assistant-Certified). This means they have passed the certification exam developed jointly by the National Board of Medical Examiners and the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants. To maintain their certified status, our PA-Cs complete 100 hours of continuing medical education every two years and take the national recertification exam every ten years.
A Nurse Practitioner (NP) is an advanced practice nurse who provides high-quality healthcare services similar to those of a physician or physician assistant. At SkinSpeaks, our nurse practitioners diagnose and treat a wide range of dermatology issues. Besides clinical dermatology services, our nurse practitioners focus on health promotion, disease prevention, health education, and counseling to help patients make wise lifestyle choices that prevent skin cancer and other skin-related conditions.
