Associates in Dermatology 

Start fresh in 2022 with a skin check to your trusted dermatology specialist. Associates in Dermatology has served the medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology and skin care needs of Central Floridians for over 30 years. They now have 17 locations across Central Florida. 

President and Medical Director at Associates in Dermatology, Dr. Michael Steppie, has authored articles and campaigns aimed at educating the public about the risks of skin cancer. He contributes regularly to print publications and has both a television and online media presence. Dr. Steppie’s expert opinions have been quoted in Men’s Health Magazine, along with being published in the Skin Cancer Foundation Journal on a number of occasions. 

From life-saving skin cancer treatment such as Mohs micrographic surgery, to routine skin care needs and expert aesthetic procedures, Dr. Steppie and his team are dedicated to providing patients state-of-the-art care. Loyal patients value a customized approach to treatment, rather than a one-size-fits-all diagnosis at Associates in Dermatology.

In addition to being selected as Orlando’s Doctors of the Year by Style Magazine 10 years in a row, Dr. Steppie’s group received the status of ‘Super Performers,’ ranking in the top percentile (above 90%) of the merit-based incentive payment system (MIPS), through the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for several consecutive years. MIPS was adopted by the CMS pledge to put patients first. The performance is measured through the data clinician’s report in four critical areas. 

During our interview with Dr. Steppie, he addressed how he and his team have noticed a decline in patients scheduling annual skin exams, especially due to Covid-19. “Yet, it’s not a good idea as early detection of skin cancer is crucial,” he said. Dr. Steppie wants to remind patients to schedule their skin-check visit because “the best gift you can give yourself or your loved ones is the gift of good health.”

Dr. Steppie and team are staying committed to excellence in the year ahead. “In 2022, we will continue to stay on top of cutting-edge treatments and new healthcare technologies that deliver the highest quality of care and convenience, while remaining diligent in keeping our patients safe in our practices,” he concluded. 

Associates in Dermatology accepts most healthcare plans from major insurance carriers. Beyond skin disorders, the practice also treats disorders of the hair and nails at each of the 17 locations.
