Our History

Dermatology Associates of Kentucky was first established in 1951 by Dr. Ullin Leavell, and was located on Market Street in downtown Lexington. Dr. Leavell had a deep appreciation for medical education. He was involved in the early formation of the University of Kentucky College of Medicine, and served on the UK Medical Faculty from 1961-1971. He eventually moved his practice to a house on Limestone, so he could teach and see patients more readily. In 1972, Dr. Ira Mersack joined Dr. Leavell, and the practice became known as Leavell & Mersack. Over time, new providers joined the practice, and in 1988 the practice became known as Dermatology Associates of Kentucky.
