Welcome to our blog!

We are excited to launch this new method of communication with our patients. Whether you are an existing patient or you are searching for a dermatologist in the Upper Connecticut River Valley, we are happy you are here.

Today, in addition to our original Claremont office, we have locations in Hanover/Lebanon and New London, New Hampshire. Across the river, we see patients at Mt. Ascutney Hospital in Windsor, Vermont.

Exactly thirty years after we opened our doors, my son, Daniel joined the practice. Dan has added a new and exciting dimension to the practice and much of our technological and cosmetic expansion has been a result of his enthusiasm and skills.

We have also expanded our staff within the last two years to include three Physician Assistants — Ashwin Kumar, Kira Schachinger, and Sherry Mahalik-Fitts.

With this expansion, we have remained a comprehensive clinical dermatology practice, and now offer a multitude of cosmetic dermatology options. We remain committed to providing the highest quality skin care to our patients in Vermont and New Hampshire through personalized attention and innovative technologies.

The field of dermatology has exploded in recent years with new and exciting understanding of skin diseases, treatment options, and procedures. We are proud of what we do and what we are able to offer our patients. To that end, did you know:

• Peraza Dermatology Group is one of only two groups in New England to offer Superficial Radiotherapy (SRT), a non-surgical treatment option for non-melanoma skin cancer.

• We offer cutting edge technology in Tattoo Removal through the use of Eclipse Reverse™.

• We offer one of the most extensive list of cosmetic treatment options in New England. To investigate these services, read about them here.

• All cosmetic consultations are free of charge.

We have a lot of exciting information to share and we are committed to doing this through this blog. As we move forward, we hope to promote skin health awareness as a vital part of your healthy lifestyle. We plan to post relevant articles on various topics including dermatology news, advancements in dermatologic and cosmetic treatments, practical skin care advice and we plan to offer our loyal readers exciting promotions.

Thank you for your support and as always, please feel free to contact Peraza Dermatology Group with any questions you may have.
