17 Central Florida Locations to Serve You

Dr. Michael Steppie

As president and medical director of Associates in Dermatology, a leading dermatology practice established now for over 30 years, Dr. Steppie and his talented team proudly deliver an unrivaled level of care to patients across 17 convenient Central Florida locations, including its most recent one in Winter Garden.

Dr. Steppie is not your average dermatologist. This Mohs micrographic surgeon is on the forefront of skin cancer treatment and has been engaged in advancing dermatologic research for years. In 2019, he collarborated with Sanford Burnham on a study melanoma and another on patients suffering from vitiligo.

Convenient & Paperless Technologies

“Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, I have been implementing innovative healthcare technologies in addition to standard infection control measures, to ensure our offices remain safe places to receive dermatologic care in the most convenient way possible.” Says Dr. Steppie.

For instance, we acted quickly to provide timely tele-health appointments to patients that were more at risk for coronavirus. More recently, I also introduced a convenient and time-saving platform called Health iPASS. It is a contactless and paperless option for patients to complete their pre check-in paperwork or make hassle-free payments from the comfort of their home and using their cell phone, two main advantages amongst many!

Associates in Dermatology Ranked as Super Performers

High Quality Care is the mission statement of Associates in Dermatology… That dedication to providing the utmost care has not gone unnoticed as Dr. Steppie has being voted for several consecutive years by our magazine amongst the Doctors of the year as well as Top Physician by Orlando Family Magazine.

“These awards are a reflection of the loyalty and appreciation that our patients have for our practice and dedicated team of dermatology providers.” says Dr. Steppie.

Also, he is proud to announce that Associates in Dermatology received for several consecutive years, the status of Super Performers, ranking in the top percentile (above 90%), from the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).

The MIPS score is derived from the quality of care the clinician delivered, how well they enhanced patient engagement, utilization of electronic exchange of health information, and the cost of the care provided. MIPS is part of the Quality Payment program from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). 

Looking Forward to Serving You in 2021

That patient-focused approach has contributed to increase Associates in Dermatology’s presence in the Greater Orlando area.

When you have issues with your skin, hair or nails, it is important to consult with a professional to find the root cause of the problem, says Dr. Steppie, so that we provide our patients a proper diagnosis and an individualized treatment plan.

In 2021, our practices will continue to stay on top of cutting-edge treatments and new healthcare technologies that deliver optimal customer care and convenience.”

Here at Associates in Dermatology, we will remain diligent in providing the highest quality of care while keeping our patients safe.
