Specialties

Dr. Katherine S English has the following 2 specialties

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

  • Dermatology

    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.

Great Doctor!

We have been taking our 5 year old son to her since he was 6 months old. She has been wonderful! She helped us with his very bad eczema when he was a infant. He had a rash on his mouth when he was a toddler for 6 months that his regular doctor could not figure out. It took her all of 15 seconds of looking at it to know what it was (it was not something that is often heard of!). She is incredibly pleasant and we have had nothing but great experiences with her over 4.5 years. It is hard to find a doctor with such a great demeanor!

Long wait

I had a noon appointment. At 12:30 PM I was still in the waiting room so I asked the receptionist how long it would be, she said Dr. English was running behind and there were two people in waiting rooms for her to see even before I would get back there. She couldn't give me a time because it depended on what Dr. English was doing with each patient.Needless to say I left. I would have been a new patient but from what experienced and from what I'm reading this is typical of the wait time at messenger dermatology and that's not acceptable for me. Doctors should be respectful of a patient's wait time just as they want us to be respectful and be to our appointment on time if not earlier! There was a lady that had been there before I was, she had already waited an hour and was still in the reception area. I won't be going back!

Absolutely wonderful!

Dr. English is so helpful. She will actually listen to your ideas about treatment which is very hard to find in health care providers. She's easy to contact and very kind during appointments. Best dermatologist ever!
