Associates in Dermatology 

Start fresh in 2023 with a skin check to your trusted dermatology specialist. Associates in Dermatology, your skin cancer and skincare specialists, have served the general, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology needs of Central Floridians for over three decades. 

The practices’ president and medical director, Dr. Steppie is not your average dermatologist. His expert opinions have been quoted in Men’s Health Magazine. He has also been published in the Skin Cancer Foundation Journal. 

This Mohs micrographic surgeon is also on the forefront of skin cancer treatment and has been engaged in advancing dermatologic research for years. 

Speaking of skin cancer, a few weeks ago, The Today Show revealed that the first lady’s doctors found a lesion above her right eye during a routine screening as well as another one from the left side of her chest. Both were confirmed to be basal cell carcinoma.

Basal cell carcinoma, for which the first lady was treated with the procedure known as Mohs surgery, is the most common type of skin cancer, but also the most curable form. It’s considered highly treatable, especially when caught early. 

Jill Biden regularly encourages audiences to schedule cancer screening appointments they may have skipped during the pandemic out of fear of visiting the doctor’s office. 

A proactive approach is shared by Dr. Steppie.

“Our focus is on promoting a healthy lifestyle and raising awareness and prevention. Let’s not forget that the skin is the largest organ in the body and it is crucial to know how to correctly care for it,” says Steppie, MD.

From life-saving skin cancer treatment such as Mohs micrographic surgery, to routine skin care needs and expert aesthetic procedures, this award-winning practice is dedicated to providing patients state-of-the-art care. 

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

“In 2023, 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. 

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

They have now 17 convenient locations in 6 Central Florida Counties.
