Established in 1951, Dermatology Associates of Kentucky is one of the oldest, largest, and most comprehensive dermatologic practices in the United States. Our eight board-certified Dermatologists and three Physician Assistants provide the safest and most advanced medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatologic care available. Two of our physicians hold additional board certification in Internal Medicine, making them exceptionally qualified to care for patients with skin manifestations of internal disease.
Our physicians have been repeatedly elected to “Best Doctors in America” by our medical colleagues. In the most recent voting, DAK physicians represented almost half of the Kentucky Dermatologists awarded this honor from Harvard University. Kentucky currently has 367 Best Doctors. Seven of our physicians received the award, which means that DAK providers now represent 2% of the Best Doctors in the state.
Our staff includes a Mohs micrographic surgical team, led by Dr. Joseph Blackmon, trained in the latest and most accurate techniques of skin cancer surgery and facial reconstruction. We have performed over 35,000 Mohs procedures since 1985, with cure rates over 99%.
The director of our CAP-accredited Dermatopathology Reference Laboratory, Dr. Fernando de Castro, trained at the Mayo Clinic and holds three board certifications in Dermatology, Dermatopathology, and Dermatological Immunology.
Dr. Laurie Massa and Dr. April Ramsey specialize in the latest and most effective cosmetic procedures through our BelleÂge Medispa. Our medispa includes four advanced lasers and the latest technology in intense pulsed light facial rejuvenation.
In addition to the office, lab, and medispa, our Fountain Plaza location – one of the largest free-standing dermatologic facilities in the United States – contains a fully-accredited Ambulatory Surgery Center where you can receive state of the art surgical care in a comfortable and compassionate setting. During our most recent inspections, both the Office of the Inspector General (governmental regulatory agency) and the private AAAHC (Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care) gave DAK the highest possible scores, reflecting our long standing commitment to patient safety and quality care.
We also provide office services at our satellite locations in Beaumont Center in Southwest Lexington and in Frankfort, KY. We look forward to caring for you.
