Skin Cancer And Cosmetic Dermatology Center To Open Skin Care Clinic In Dayton Sept. 18

Thursday, September 14, 2017

Skin Cancer & Cosmetic Dermatology Center today announced the opening of a conveniently located skin care clinic in downtown Dayton, scheduled for Monday, Sept. 18.

Located at 167 3rd Ave., Dayton’s new skin health center becomes the latest addition to the growing family of skin health centers across southeast Tennessee and northwest Georgia. Medical and administrative staff will be on hand with refreshments to greet the community when the Dayton clinic’s doors open for the first time.

A full spectrum of the most up-to-date skin health and treatment services will be available at Skin Cancer and Cosmetic Dermatology Center in Dayton, including general dermatology, pediatric dermatology, superficial radiation therapy (SRT) for treatment of non-melanoma cancer, and aesthetic dermatology.

"Skin Cancer & Cosmetic Dermatology Center’s medical team in Dayton is led by clinic founder John Chung, M.D., a nationally known leader in the field of dermatology and skin cancer, Kevin Tawzer, PA-C, and Carol Marrs, dermatology certified nurse practitioner," officials said.

“Being proactive about your skin’s health is essential to your overall well-being, but if traveling to an appointment is inconvenient, sometimes it can deter someone from seeking the care they need,” said Dr. Chung. “We’re excited to open this new location in Dayton to better serve our growing number of patients in Rhea County. It is a privilege to continue offering the best dermatology care in southeast Tennessee and northwest Georgia by making it more accessible.”

“Our extraordinary medical team has decades of experience in treating a broad range of skin conditions and bringing professional expertise to even the most difficult cases,” said Kelley Finnell, executive director of Skin Cancer and Cosmetic Dermatology Center. “We care deeply about our patients and our communities, and part of our commitment is putting the needs of our patients first.”

More information is available by calling 423-567-1388. New and established patient appointments are now being scheduled, and most all insurance plans are accepted.
