Dermatology

Our MHMG group provides comprehensive dermatalogical care. As we continue to expand this vital group, patients have accessibility to highly effective care and treatment for conditions such as focal psoriasis, vitiligo, atopic dermatitis, and skin cancers.

MHMG now offers the latest in treatment of focal psoriasis, vitiligo, atopic dermatitis, and leukoderma EXCIMER-LASER.

The EXCIMER-LASER is a unique medical laser that broadens our treatment profile for clinical Dermatology. It delivers targeted 308-nm UVB in a collimated, monochromatic beam to safely and effectively treat diseased skin. The treatment is painless and rapidly clears plaques and lesions while sparing healthy tissue. It is ideal for inverse, scalp, and palmoplantar psoriasis as well as for cosmetically bothersome vitiligo.

The Dermatology Department of Mission Heritage Medical Group consists of a Board Certified Dermotologist. We continue to expand this vital group, as seen with the recent addition of a new Mohs (a microscopically controlled surgery that is highly effective for common types of skin cancer) surgery expert, as well as the addition of office support staff team members. We all look forward to providing comprehensive Dermatological care for South Orange County patients.
