Brentwood Dermatology Joins QualDerm Partners

QualDerm’s Growing Network Now Includes Four Tennessee Practice Locations

BRENTWOOD, TN (September 6, 2018)

QualDerm Partners, a company that creates market-leading dermatology practice partnerships through affiliations and de novo development, today announced Brentwood Dermatology has joined the company’s network of affiliated physician-owned practices.

Bill McDaniel, MD, a board-certified dermatologist, founded Brentwood Dermatology in 1983. The practice, which serves patients of all ages throughout the Greater Nashville area, provides general dermatology and skin cancer care as well as cosmetic procedures. The practice’s clinical staff includes one general dermatologist and two nurse practitioners.

“Since starting Brentwood Dermatology, my goal has been to give patients the best care possible. Affiliating with QualDerm allows me to stay focused on my patients while ensuring the business side of the practice is well run,” says Dr. McDaniel. “I’m also excited to collaborate with other QualDerm-affiliated dermatologists across Tennessee to build a strong network that will ensure our patients continue to have access to high-quality dermatological care.”

Over the last year, QualDerm has expanded its presence in Tennessee. Cumberland Skin Surgery and Dermatology, which has practice locations in Hermitage and Lebanon, was QualDerm’s first partnership in the state. Lebanon Dermatology affiliated with QualDerm earlier in 2018. The company has a total of 32 practice locations in Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Ohio, Georgia, and Pennsylvania, with plans to expand further this year.

Dermatology practices that partner with QualDerm have access to management support, guidance and capital for service expansion and growth. The foundation of QualDerm’s partnership model is maintaining physicians’ clinical autonomy, which ensures patient care remains at the highest levels. The company’s practice management structure is organized into Regional Joint Operating Committees whose membership is made up of both physicians and business professionals. This structure allows practice management decisions to be made based on local market needs and conditions.

“We’re honored that Dr. McDaniel has chosen to affiliate with QualDerm,” says Bill Southwick, Chief Executive Officer of QualDerm. “We partner with dermatology practices that have a reputation for delivering high-quality care. Brentwood Dermatology has been doing that for decades, and we look forward to helping them expand their services even further.”
