Dr. Eleanor Y Ford 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.

Tormented by a rash on my lower face that would not go away, I finally got up the courage to see a doctor and am so lucky that I found Dr. Ford. Her office is conveniently located with ample free parking. Her staff is friendly and helpful. It took just minutes to fill out the necessary information forms on a computer tablet and I waited for less than five minutes before being shown into an exam room. Dr. Ford is warm and kind, the sort of caring physician that inspires confidence and trust. She quickly diagnosed my problem and provided me with the necessary medication without requiring that I fill a prescription. We set up a followup appointment with a plan to work on a maintenance program to prevent future breakouts. I just wish I could see her for all my medical needs.
very good experience with people of coloran area neglected or where other doctors are ill at ease or hampered by their own bias and lack of experience with different types of skin. Also some other doctors do not realize or appreciate that darker skin is very sensitive, also tans in the summer and scars more easily in response to trauma. Dr. Ford has experience with black and white patients and is able to bring that into her practice to offer the best in personalized care.
