Dr. Merrick D Elias has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

In all of these years I've gone to a Doctor's appointment , this was one of the best I've ever had , not only at professional level but for the kindness and courtesy that all the staff gave me , simply the Doctor Elias as his coworkers deserve not only an "A" as a grade , they deserve "AA".

Awesome Dermatologist!!

I had to see a dermatologist that took my Health Plan, now that I am retired, and I happened to pick the first one on the page. I hit a "homerun" with him. He is such a professional and so pleasant. Puts you at ease with what he tells you. His Staff were such great people and his Office Manager, such a wonderful person that takes time to speak to you and gives you all the info you need.
