How important is obtaining quality healthcare for you and your family? Most people would agree that taking a chance with their healthcare is a bad idea. Yet we do not always receive top-quality care when visiting a doctor or hospital and too often patients simply don’t know how to find the best doctor to deliver the best care.
According to Castle Connolly, “some people believe that patient ratings are the best source of information on doctors. Unfortunately, that is a misguided assumption. Patients may be able to rate a doctor’s “bedside manner,” but they know little about the complexity of medical care.”
As Marty Makarty, M.D. a surgeon at John Hopkins, wrote in his widely acclaimed book Unaccountable; “So how does a patient who hasn’t been to medical school find the best care? The only real way to judge health care quality is to ask health professionals who work closely with doctors daily.”

Skin is the body’s largest organ, and you’re bound to encounter some spots and marks throughout your lifetime. Some skin conditions are normal, like the occasional acne spot, but some most definitely aren’t, like an inconsistent mole. Here are seven signs you should visit a dermatologist so you can stop a serious problem before it gets worse.
If you don’t have a dermatologist yet, the sooner you find one, the better. While some things get better with age, your skin is not one of them. Major life changes like pregnancy and trauma can trigger skin issues like scarring and acne, and sun exposure and aging can cause dark spots and loss of collagen. Some of these issues are merely irritating, and others can be truly dangerous. Regular check-ups from your derm can solve surface issues or more importantly, save your life.
So how you know when to see a dermatologist? In addition to regular check-ups, you should visit the doctor’s office anytime you notice something unusual that hasn’t receded after a couple of days. Anything strange that’s sticking around for a while is a good reason to get a professional to check it out. Regular body checks for irregular spots, marks, and moles is necessary.
Below are some of the most common signs you should visit a dermatologist.
