What is

Nail Fungus?

Nail fungus, also known as onychomycosis, is a common fungal infection that affects the nails, causing symptoms such as thickened, discolored, and brittle nails. It typically occurs when fungi, such as dermatophytes, yeast, or molds, invade the nail bed, often resulting in a yellow or white discoloration and potential nail deformity. Nail fungus can be stubborn and challenging to treat without professional intervention, making it important to consult a dermatologist for proper diagnosis and effective treatment options.

I’ve struggled with eczema all my life and the various amounts of creams/ointments given to me by other places never helped enough. Dr.Patel is the only dermatologist I have met that explained everything to me clearly so I understood my issue clearly and gave me other options. My hands have never looked so clear in my life. Super happy with his service and his whole office is very nice/professional. Highly recommend!

Dr. Patel is very knowledgeable and helpful. First time I went in he spotted my problem just by looking and immediately assigned me treatment. After following his regiment for a couple of months, it has completely healed. He also was able to check several other areas and prescribed medications for those areas. I highly recommend.

I started suffering from hormonal acne last October and visited many different dermatologists to find a sustainable solution. Dr. Patel is the only doctor who was committed to healing my skin. He saw me every 2 weeks to monitor my treatment and had effectively cleared my skin since I began seeing him in February! I am extremely grateful for him and his entire practice.

I am very happy I found Dr. Patel he knew right away my hair loss issue, diagnosed it and began the treatment regiment. He is so knowledgeable and takes good care of you. I’ve seen rapid results in just 2 visits.The front desk staff are courteous and professional as well, and the wait times are very minimal. I highly recommend seeing Dr. Patel for your all your skin concerns, you won’t be disappointed.

Dr. Patel is amazing. Not only is he great, but he will resolve any issues presented to him. I first came to see him for some skin tags and moles I wanted to remove, which he did. Also, I brought in my mother who was suffering from furuncle … something i’ve never heard from, but Dr. Patel recommended some medicine and my mom skin has cleared up 100%. I love his extreme intelligence and ambition to help with any dermatology issue. I would definitely recommend Dr. Patel to anyone dealing with any skin issue.
