A message to dermatologists and our potential future partners

As the dermatology market continues to change, you may be thinking, as I did, there may be a better way to practice. Large group organizations driven by corporate agendas are emerging all over the field of dermatology. If you are like many doctors, you are wondering how you can protect what you have built without feeling the need to compromise. How can you continue to do what you do best, care for patients?

Dermatology Medical Partners is a dermatology support organization led by dermatologists with a simple mission of improving the lives of our partner dermatologists, just as they improve the lives of their patients. The challenges of running a successful office are becoming greater every year. We now practice in the world of MACRA, MIPS, HIPAA and HITECH. This myriad of acronyms doesn’t replace previous challenges of human resources, insurance company negotiations, marketing and accounts payable, it adds to them.

There are obvious reasons these larger organizations are emerging and they are likely to grow in size and number. We think DMP can do it better. Our mission is simple and it drives every decision we make. Improving the lives of dermatologists means allowing you the autonomy to practice as you like, but taking away the burden of non-clinical services. Your practice retains your name, your staff and your identity. We provide years of expertise in practice management to make your life better. With Dermatology Medical Partners on your side, you will be able to protect what you’ve built. The fear of being marginalized will be replaced by enthusiasm for practicing medicine the way you intended when you went to medical school, patient first.

If you are interested in learning more about the transition and partnership opportunities available, I encourage you to give us a call. We will work tirelessly to structure a partnership to meet your needs and make your life better. Dermatology Medical Partners will help you work smarter, not harder.
