WELCOME TO M.A.S.C.

607 N. Third Street, Marquette, MI 49855

As a physician for twelve years on a university campus, I learned first hand about the emotional consequences of acne. The toll on self-esteem often runs deeper than the physical scars. Fortunately, help is available. Through a tailored approach, I saw many cases of acne clear completely. Many factors including skin characteristics, acne type, hormone balance, and even social stressors are key.

Often, acne clears with simple advice on healthy skin care, cleansers, and changes in birth control. When needed, a variety of prescription medications, including antibiotics, are useful. For the most severe and resistant forms or acne, Accutane (isotretinoin) is necessary and exceptionally helpful.

Besides acne, other skin problems effect young people. Malignant Melanoma is occurring at increased rates on college campuses. I have seen the impact of this potentially life threatening disease and have vowed to make a difference. Fortunately, most concerns over dark spots and moles can be alleviated after a careful history and skin examination. Serial measurements over time and sometimes a skin biopsy are useful. I encourage everyone to check the links below and become educated about the risks and the ABCDs of skin cancer. No one should feel intimidated about asking a question or raising a concern.
