How do I care for areas treated with liquid nitrogen?Answer:
There is no special treatment needed. The area may develop a brown scab that will peel off in 7 to 10 days. If the area becomes open, cover it with clean Vaseline and a Band-Aid, daily.
How often should I have a full skin exam?Answer:
We recommend that the general population have at least a yearly skin exam. It is felt that in most cases any skin cancer that develops within that time should still be small and easily treated. Patients with a past history of skin cancer or atypical moles should have skin exams more often. This is usually determined by Dr. Rosen.
Is a tanning bed really bad for you?Answer:
Yes. The ultraviolet rays received from tanning beds are the deep penetrating rays that are associated with the damage that predisposes one to developing malignant melanoma skin cancer.
Are you taking new patients?Answer:
Yes, but we ask that first time, new patients be seen by Becky Repaire, PA-C because Dr. Rosen’s schedule is usually booked several months in advance. Becky Repaire is an excellent provider and delivers the same detailed thorough care as Dr. Rosen. Once you become a patient of our practice, you can schedule an appointment with any provider.
How do I obtain a copy of my Medical Records?Answer:
Please ask the receptionists for a Medical Records Release Form that will need to be filled out. Once this is done, we are happy to provide you with a copy of your records.
