Dermatology

Thursday, October 02, 2014
Watson Clinic's Department of Dermatology is led by a team of board-certified specialists, accompanied by highly qualified physician assistants and an experienced medical support team, who continue to set the standard for exceptional skin care in every community they serve. Dermatology is one of the busiest departments within Watson Clinic - welcoming well over 75,000 patient visits last year - at offices located in north and south Lakeland, Zephyrhills and Sun City Center. 
  
Utilizing the latest technologies and treatments in the field, our team provides a host of services designed to improve skin health.

These services include:
• General skin evaluations
• Diagnosis and treatment of all forms of skin cancer
• Detection and treatment of skin disorders, including eczema, psoriasis, acne, dermatitis and rosacea
• Treatment of skin, hair and nail diseases
• Dermatologic Surgery 
• A variety of esthetical services, including chemical peels and microdermabrasions
• An onsite pathology lab offering the added convenience of a more streamlined testing and results process.
 
Maintaining a regular schedule for general skin evaluations is essential, particularly for those individuals with excessive recreational or occupational-related sun exposure, and those with a prior history or family history of pre-cancer, skin cancer, or melanoma.
 
Other department highlights include:
 
Dermatopathology
In addition to their dermatology practices, Drs. Linwood Bond, Jr. and Amy Prakash also specialize in dermatopathology. When diagnosis of a skin condition cannot be adequately attained through visual examination alone, a skin biopsy is sent to the dermatopathologist, who studies the tissue on a cellular level to produce the most accurate diagnosis possible.
 
Dr. Bond serves his dermatology patients from his South location, while his dermatopathology practice is housed out of the Bella Vista Building.

Mohs Micrographic Surgery

Dr. Kelly Bickle and Dr. Kerry M.W. Fike specializes in Mohs Micrographic Surgery at the Bella Vista Building. Mohs Micrographic Surgery entails the precise removal of certain carcinomas in patients at high risk for reoccurrence. The procedure boasts a high cure rate and maximum tissue conservation. In addition to Mohs Micrographic Surgery, Dr. Bickle's areas of expertise include cutaneous oncology, post-Mohs reconstruction, and cosmetic dermatology.
