We are open and taking extra COVID-19 precautions to keep you safe.
1. Greasy Foods: There is very little data to support the idea that oily foods like pizza and fries have an impact on your skin. While it’s generally a good idea to eat healthily, everything you eat gets broken down by your digestive system and does not impact oil production in your face.
2. Spot treatments: while it may be tempting to use one of those zit patches, spot treatments generally don’t work well for acne. Acne is a chronic inflammatory disease of your hair follicles, and it’s much better to use creams applied to the entire face to prevent *future* breakouts. If you’ve got a troublesome pimple, you could always get a small cortisone injection to calm it down, but I would reserve this for acne emergencies only.
3. Acne creams work right away. Most creams, especially retinoids like adapalene or tretinoin can take months to change how your skin grows to stop making acne. Be patient and discuss your concerns with your dermatologist. Thanks to modern medicine there are now so many wonderful acne treatments available so you don’t have to suffer for too much longer 😉.

I am thrilled to write this review about Dr. Chouake. He exuded caring, compassion, and kindness, and he really took the time to educate us on the possible treatment options and plans. He invited questions, and took time to answer each one thoroughly. He was extremely competent and knowledgeable, with the kindest bedside manner. Highly, highly recommend him!
I highly recommend Dr. Chouake! He was able to address all my skin issues . He and his office staff are amazing. My insurance didnt cover any of my medications prescribed however Dr. C was able to find me an alternative way of getting the same meds for an afforable price. Thank you!
