The Dermatology program at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center has a four-part mission

  • Educating medical students, physicians, and the public about dermatology.
  • Providing our patients with the best dermatologic care available.
  • Performing research into the causes and treatment of dermatologic diseases.
  • Contributing to our community via service.

Our department provides care for patients with all types of skin disorders. Specialty services include patch testing for skin allergies, advanced evaluation of hair and scalp disorders, interpretation of skin pathology, occupational dermatology, and cosmetic procedures.

Our dermatologic surgeons perform Mohs micrographic surgery which involves microscopically controlled surgical removal of skin cancers, most commonly basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. Detection, management, and prevention of skin cancer, most notably malignant melanoma, is a top priority.

Please ask your Primary Care Physician to contact us at 717-531-6820 or 1-800-292-3332 to schedule a consultation appointment for you.
