In our clinics at Advanced Dermatology of the Midlands we see new patients daily and wanted to write this as a source of guidance and to welcome new patients coming to our practice. Some individuals are coming to see a dermatologist for the very first time. In contrast, some new patients have already seen a dermatologist elsewhere, and for various reasons want to establish care with a new dermatology provider.
Your New Dermatologist Omaha, Council Bluffs & Surrounding Communities
The dermatology specialists in our clinics in Omaha, Council Bluffs and the surrounding communities have extensive experience working with both new and established patients of all ages. In fact, we always accept new patients—this is something we don’t anticipate ever changing. We greatly appreciate the ability to provide outstanding ongoing care to our established patients as well as welcoming new patients to the practice.
The best Omaha dermatologists know the process of becoming a new patient in a practice can be stressful. This is especially true if you have found yourself in a situation where you either want a second opinion or are dissatisfied with your current dermatologist and looking to transfer your records and care elsewhere. At Advanced Dermatology of the Midlands we take extra steps to make this transition as stress-free as possible for our future patients. This is because we treat our patients like family and want them to be completely satisfied with their care every step along the way in this transition. In many cases, transfer of records from your previous dermatology practice to us is not necessary.
We recommend speaking to your new dermatologist here in our Omaha clinic at your very first appointment. We can work together to decide with you whether a records release is a good idea. If that is the case, we do most of the work for you to have records sent. Our clinic has an excellent mechanism in place to track the record requests and watch for your records to arrive. Once they do come in, these are digitized into your confidential electronic health record and become a permanent part of your medical record here in the practice.
Our Dermatology Provider Staff
All our dermatology providers have extensive experience seeing new patients and analyzing records, as they receive medical records daily and are very skilled at reviewing these and incorporating them into your chart. The dermatologists and advanced practice providers all enjoy getting to know their patients.
Their mission is to provide the best care for each patient. They do this through their work. They also contribute to the community through volunteer activities. In fact, they all donate a substantial portion of their time providing free skin cancer screenings through numerous organizations in both Omaha and Council Bluffs. All our Omaha & Council Bluffs dermatology specialists spend one evening every year volunteering at a skin cancer screening at Jennie Edmundson Hospital for Council Bluffs. Advanced Dermatology of the Midlands also provides a free skin cancer screening in Omaha in our office annually to coincide with skin cancer awareness month.
Why See a New Dermatologist in Omaha or Council Bluffs?
We understand that there are many reasons that compel a person to want to establish care with a different and new dermatologist in Omaha. These can include things such as:
- personality conflict
- lack of faith in your care decisions
- dissatisfaction with office staff, availability of appointments
- responsiveness to questions
- prescription refill requests
- even just having moved to our area, among many other things
Whatever the case may be, we have developed several processes designed to make this transition easy for you.
We are very thankful for all the input from our patients throughout the years, and welcome ongoing feedback. That is because listening to our patients, their concerns and suggestions, as well as their praise, only makes us better at what we do – delivering the best dermatology care by the best dermatologists in the region. Establishing long-term fantastic relationships with our patients by making them happy with their care and skin makes us happy.
