UK Dermatology Fact Sheet
The board-certified physicians at UK Dermatology specialize in the clinical care of the largest organ in the human body – the skin. Our physicians offer extensive clinical expertise in the management of both common and rare skin diseases. UK Dermatology seeks to improve the quality of life for patients suffering from the pain, frustration and potential embarrassment that can be caused by skin disease.

Patch testing – Patch testing is a dermatological procedure used in patients with suspected allergic contact dermatitis. Patch testing typically requires several visits in one week; your physician will determine if this test is right for you.
Pathology – Dermatologists work closely with other specialties to provide a complete network of services for our patients. Surgically removed moles and cancerous growths are often sent for microscopic examination and consultation to ensure the most precise diagnosis and highest quality of care.
Most insurance companies do not require a referral to see a dermatologist. Our dermatology services are offered in the UK Good Samaritan Medical Office Building at 125 E. Maxwell St. and in the General, Vascular & Colorectal Surgery Clinic in the Kentucky Clinic at 740 S. Limestone.
