A Family Of Dermatologists

Harris Dermatology, Naples Dermatologists, Naples DermatologyHarris Dermatology is comprised of three brothers, Brian, Keith, and Ross, and they base their lives and careers on two important principles. The first principle that they live by to deliver the best care possible to their patients with the most current procedures in dermatology. Their second principle is to live life to the fullest and enjoy what they do. Once you get to know the Harris brothers, it’s clear that these principles play a huge part in the success that they have experienced since they started their  practice more than 15 years ago. All the Harris brothers are board certified dermatologists and they all have specialized training in skin cancer. Since all three of them are dermatologists, the Harris brothers are constantly networking, communicating, and sharing techniques with each other. Not only does this allow them to strengthen their bond as a family but it also creates an environment of constant career growth for the brothers as they continuously share new discoveries from the world of dermatology with each other. Together, Brian, Keith, and Ross bring their talents to Lee and Collier Counties with two offices, one located in Fort Myers and another in North Naples. Our Naples dermatology office offers state-of-the-art facilities, and is conveniently located off Airport Pulling and Pine Ridge Road. See our contact page for a Google map and driving directions to our Naples office.

 

What is Naples Dermatology?

According to Wikipedia, Dermatology is a doctor who specializes in the skin. The human skin is the largest organ in the human body. Pathology of the skin is also a part of dermatology. A pathologist will examine cultures and determine if the culture is cancerous, non cancerous or something else. Dermatologist and Pathologists both can qualify as dermatopathologists. At the completion of a standard residency in dermatology, many dermatologists are also competent at dermatopathology. Some dermatopathologists qualify to sit for their examinations by completing a residency in dermatology and one in pathology.

Naples Dermatology Skin Fact:

The thinnest skin is found on your eyelids at 0.02mm thick

 

Harris Dermatology located in Naples, recommends you examine yourself for skin cancer:

Living in Naples Florida, our Dermatology specialists will instruct you on how to perform a self-examination. Although it is better to make sure you come into Harris Dermatology for yearly screenings and have a certified Naples Dermatologist examine your skin. However, for typical daily self-exams, this is what you need to do:

Here’s how:

In a full-length mirror, inspect your skin. Start with your head and face, using a blow dryer to check your scalp.

Check hands, including nails. Examine elbows, arms, underarms, torso and trunk.

With your back to the mirror, use a hand mirror to check your back, the back of your neck, and other hard-to-see places.

Sitting down, check legs and feet, including soles, heels, toes, and nails. Use the hand mirror to examine genitals.

 

Harris Dermatology recommends that if you detect any suspicious looking spot, call our Naples office for an appointment.

Look for skin changes of any kind. Cancer warning signs include:

  • A spot or sore that continues to itch, hurt, crust, scab, erode or bleed
  • An open sore that does not heal within two weeks a skin growth, mole, beauty mark or brown spot that:
  • Changes color or appear pearly, translucent, tan, brown, black or multicolored
  • Changes in texture
  • Increases in size or thickness
  • Is asymmetrical
  • Is irregular in outline or border
  • Is bigger than 6mm, the size of a pencil eraser
  • Appears after age 21

See Harris Dermatology regularly – again, a qualified Naples Dermatologist needs to evaluate any questionable areas you might find.
