  • Personalized Care

    We realize that you are looking for a "personal touch" in physicians. Dr. Ford has pledged to treat all patients with understanding and compassion. A thorough history will be obtained with any necessary tests to diagnose and treat your condition. We don't play "beat the clock" with patients.

    Your Time is Valuable

    No one likes to be kept waiting. We make every effort to see you as close as possible to your appointment time. Even though some patients require more than others, you will receive as much attention as your condition warrants. We make a conscious effort to decrease waiting time, and still deliver quality care..

Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center
  • Contemporary Modern Approach

    Today, patients are better-educated and more informed compared to several decades ago. We actually welcome your questions and will answer them in common, everyday language. You will be actively involved in your care, and may be given a choice of alternatives to decide what is best for you. Don't be surprised if Dr. Ford calls you in a few days after your visit to find out what progress you are making.

    Preventive Medicine

    While several skin conditions are curable, there are many that are not. Dr. Ford believes that by educating you about your specific condition, you can have a better understanding of how to control it. Once condition has been achieved, preventative measures may be all you need. This decreases the number of follow-up visits, expenses on costly medications, and can help prevent relapses.
