What to Expect at Your Appointment

Please make sure to stop applying skin lotions or creams at the affected areas of your skin two weeks prior to your appointment.

At your first appointment, we will conduct tests such as blood tests and a skin biopsy and review any test results you or your doctor have sent or brought to us to compare the results of our tests with those findings.

For scans and x-rays, you may need another appointment. We will work with you and your schedule, particularly if you are traveling to Baltimore for care.
