Skin Cancer & Cosmetic Dermatology Center opens a new facility in Chattanooga’s Southside, today. 

Located at 320 East Main St., in the heart of Chattanooga’s downtown Main Street district, the Southside dermatology & cosmetic center becomes the latest addition to their family of centers serving southeast Tennessee and northwest Georgia. 

“Being proactive about your skin’s health is essential to your overall well-being, but if traveling to an appointment is too inconvenient, sometimes it can deter someone from seeking the care they need,” said John Chung, M.
D., the clinic’s medical director. 

“The eclectic mix of art, entertainment, cuisine and people is what draws me to Southside,” stated Stewart Little, MD.  “Years ago, seeds were planted and organic growth was the result. As a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon with Skin Cancer and Cosmetic Dermatology Center, I use that philosophy with my patients. I listen to their desires, and I have an instinctive understanding of their expectations to blossom in the most natural-looking way possible. I look forward to being part of the premiere dermatology and cosmetic services that SCCDC is bringing to Southside.”

“We’re excited to open this new location in Chattanooga’s Southside to better serve our growing number of patients who work and live downtown. It is a privilege to continue offering the best dermatology care in our region by making it so much more accessible. Our patients will have convenient access to complete dermatology care and skin cancer screenings, including general, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology,” said Lyndsey Randolph-Boeselager, FNP-BC, who will serve as the Southside location’s primary family nurse practitioner. 

“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 & 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.”

“Our new location on Main Street is perfect for midday appointments, is convenient to all major downtown employers, and offers complimentary onsite parking, ” added Mrs. Finnell. “It was a pleasure to work with the owner of this beautiful facility on the division and transformation of our space, and we look forward to a lasting relationship with Center MedSpa, Memorial Integrative Health, and BenchMark Physical Therapy in providing excellent services to this community. We welcome their patients into our practice.”
