Dermatology Specialist, Inc. is an 8-physician practice with seven offices in San Diego County & Riverside County. All our partners are Board Certified Dermatologists.

Our group has been conducting clinical research trials for twenty-six years. We are currently involved in many clinical research trials out of two separate sites such as Pyoderma Gangrenosum, Basal Cell Carcinoma Nervus Syndrome, Acne, Actinic Keratosis, Rosacea, Atopic Dermatitis, Psoriasis, Vitiligo, Warts, Cellulite and "Biologics." There are several factors that make our group valuable to you for clinical research trials:

High Volume Practice:
We currently see more than 35,000 patients per year. 15-20% of our practices are seen for cosmetic procedures like Botox, dermal fillers, chemical peels, laser hair removal, sclerotherapy, and laser treatments.

Computerized Diagnoses On Patients:
We can generate a list of all patients with a particular diagnosis from our computer bank of over 239,000 patients.

IRB Flexibility:
Because we are a private practice, we can use one of many central IRB's with whom we have worked with, or one of your own choosing.

On-Site Clinical Trials Coordinator:
We have four full time clinical research coordinators on site.

Dermatology Specialist, Inc. would be a logical choice for your future clinical trials in medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology. We see many clinical indications including eczema, seborrhea, psoriasis, warts, herpes simplex & zoster, alopecia, actinic keratosis, acne, rosacea, impetigo, leg ulcers, scars, tinea, onychomycosis, vitiligo and other diseases. We also see all type skin cancers. We can help you conduct trials for anti-aging topicals, fillers, botulinum toxin, chemical peels, laser, sclerotherapy, medical devices and others.

We look forward to hearing from you and hopefully assisting you with future clinical research trials.
