Here’s a startling statistic. According to the American Cancer Society more people in the United States are diagnosed with skin cancer than all other cancers combined. But here’s some good news. For the past 40 years, Dermatology Group of Arkansas’ top priority has been keeping Arkansans skin looking and feeling their best as well as keeping it cancer free.
“Both our patients and our staff feel like family to us,” says Dr. Ray Parker. “Everyday we not only check out our patient’s skin, but also get to know them as people.” With the explosion in Skin Cancer, Dr. Parker says Dermatology Group of Arkansas is proud to offer full body skin exams and the highest quality in skin cancer surgery as well as DermatoPathology, a specialization that involves diagnosing disorders of the skin under a microscope. DGA’s new and extensive Laser Program features two Scition Lasers for non-surgical skincare procedures and their cosmetic area continues to grow with Botox, Fillers, and Chemical Peels.
Dr. Renie Bressinck founded DGA in 1978 and was joined by Dr. Parker in 1994. “We would like to recognize Dr. Parker for his 25 years of service,” says Dr. Bressinck. “The practice has grown to six locations and 47 employees.” Locations include one in the Capitol City as well as Benton, Clinton, Conway, Camden, and Pine Bluff. To meet the demand for high quality Dermatology, Dr. Dan Smith, Dr. Lindsay Enns and Dr. James Matt Graham have all joined the practice as well as Maxine Lucas our Nurse Practitioner and Rebecca Denniston our Physician Assistant. In addition, Ruby McNamara, RN heads up our Laser Program. Dr. Smith adds, “It has been a great journey and we are looking forward to many more years to come.”
“We are excited about new technology and new medicines that will be used to educate and treat our patients,” continues Dr. Parker. “As we always say, wear your hat and your sunscreen and we will see you in the clinic.”
