QualDerm Partners Expands Its Network in Ohio

Dermatology & Aesthetic Care, LLC, Joins QualDerm’s Growing Network of Patient-Centric Practices

BRENTWOOD, TN (September 7, 2021) 

QualDerm Partners, a company that creates market-leading dermatology practice partnerships through affiliations and de novo development, today announced Dermatology & Aesthetic Care, LLC, has joined the company as an affiliate practice.

Dermatology & Aesthetic Care has provided medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology care since 1991. Patricia Dickerson, MD, a board-certified dermatologist, founded the Centerville, OH-based practice. The practice’s clinical staff also includes, Emily Monroe, MPAS, PA-C, and Amy Buschur, RN, FNP. Dermatology & Aesthetic Care utilizes advanced technology to ensure the safest and most-effective care possible.

Dr. Dickerson earned her medical degree from The Ohio State University School of Medicine. After that, she attended Wright State University’s Dermatology program where she worked with the chairman of the Mayo Clinic for several years and served as chief resident. Dr. Dickerson then completed additional cosmetic and surgical training with physicians from Columbus and the Mayo Clinic. She began using the CO2 laser the first year it was available and has continued to gain cosmetic training through hands-on experiences at dermatology meetings and conferences.

“We’re eager to work with QualDerm and to be a part of their quality-driven network,” says Dr. Dickerson. “This partnership will help us further expand our patients’ access to advanced dermatology services while keeping our practice’s patient-centric culture intact.”

Over the last few years, QualDerm has expanded its presence in Ohio. The Center for Surgical Dermatology and Dermatology Associates was QualDerm’s first partnership in the region. The company currently has a total of 55 practice locations in Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and Georgia, with plans to expand further.

Quality of care and physician autonomy form the foundation of QualDerm’s partnership model, ensuring patient care remains at the highest levels. The company’s 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. Dermatology practices that partner with QualDerm have access to management support, guidance and capital for service expansion and growth.

“QualDerm partners with practices that have a reputation for providing the highest-quality dermatology care,” says Bill Southwick, Chief Executive Officer of QualDerm. “Dermatology & Aesthetic Care is known for providing compassionate, quality care. We look forward to helping them grow their practice.”
