Dr. Curt P Samlaska has the following 2 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
A dermatologist is a doctor who has extensive training and knowledge of the skin, scalp, hair and nails and treats conditions that affect those areas. These doctors will evaluate any abnormality, blemish or lesion on the skin in order to determine the cause and will determine a course of treatment.
Dermatologists provide patients with full body scans in order to identify any signs that are indicative of an illness that requires treatment, such as skin cancer. These specialists may also provide cosmetic services, such as mole removal, scar diminishing treatments and even botox and face lifts.

After several years suffering with Psoriatic Arthritis outbreaks and seeing several other dermatologists who were unable to put that into remission, I was referred to Dr Samlaska by my grand daughter who had excellent results with her skin condition and thought very highly of him, I decided to follow her advice and make an appt. to consult with him. I was extremely satisfied with his ability to diagnose my condition quickly and correctly as I also had an underlying condition of excema that was never brought to my attention by forer physcians. After one visit and following his protocol I seen my condition drastically improve. I am forever grateful to have found such a experienced, caring and extremely knowledgeable dermatologist.
Dr Samlaska is amazing! I had a different dermatologist address abnormal skin cells due to prior years of sun damage. The other Dr froze approx. 4 spots on my arms and hands, it was painful, like he was attempting to dig a hole to China on my arm. The healing process took too long as well. Then, I later went to Dr Samlaska. He froze over 30 abnormal cell areas, by whisping over the areas. The spots turned black and were gone in approx 2 weeks. Not to mention - at half the price of the other Dr. Dr Samlaska's years of experience are obvious. I read some reviews of Dr Samlaska prior to the visit. Some stated he is in and out quickly and they didn't feel he listened to everything they had to say. For me - I had written list of my concerns - he addressed all of them quickly and thoroughly. I appreciate a Dr that is so knowledgeable that he can diagnose and get the job done quickly. My time is valuable too. In addition, the wait time was about 5 minutes or less both times I have gone to this office. I would recommend Dr Samlaska to anyone that is looking for a dermatologist.
My mother is 84 years old and had been seeing a number of physicians for a number of years paying exhorbitant prices for medications that were ineffective. I scheduled her with PA Kristine and within weeks of the first treatment, her skin condition showed obvious improvement and by her second follow up visit mother's skin was looking the most normal we had seen in years. This is a testimony to the thorough assessments and examinations Kristine performs and her skill with diagnosis and treatment. Best of all, Kristine and the office staff are genuinely kind and caring professionals, taking genuine interest in my mother which has made such an impression on both of us. Genuine kindness is rare and often not acknowledged. Kristine and the staff should consider themselves acknowledged and appreciated.
