At a whopping 16 square feet, your skin is your body’s largest organ. It is literally your shield from the dangers of the outside world, guarding against injury, controlling body temperature and preventing infection.

Dermatology

 

Your health is more than skin deep. The skin is our largest organ and prone to discolorations, abnormalities, and diseases.  The skin is vitally linked to internal organs and to one’s overall medical health.

Our dermatologists at Summit Medical Group Oregon diagnose and treat conditions that affect the skin, hair, nails, and sweat glands. We offer screening and dermatology procedures for a variety of skin issues, including common and serious skin cancers.
