Dermatology

Patients of all ages can visit TPMG Hampton Roads Center for Dermatology to receive dermatologic care. Dermatology is the field of medicine that specializes in diagnosing, treating, and managing disorders of the skin, hair, and nails. Although your skin can reveal your beauty and unique essence, it can also reveal internal signs of trouble. The body’s overall health and well-being must be maintained from the inside out. That being said, it’s up to you to notice when your body needs help. A board certified dermatologist is the expert.

To become a dermatologist, one must be committed to the rigorous years of training. This process typically involves earning a bachelor’s degree, earning a medical degree, completing a year-long medical internship, and completing a three-year residency in dermatology. These years of education are accompanied by hours of patient care. A board certification requires one to pass a difficult exam that demonstrates mastery.

Being treated by a board certified dermatologist means that you are receiving expert care.  Valerie Harvey, MD, MPH, is board certified by the American Board of Dermatology and is a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology.  Dr. Harvey utilizes her skills and training to examine diverse groups of people and discover individualized patient outcomes.
