What is Medical Dermatology?

Medical dermatology is a branch of dermatology that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and management of various skin conditions. These include acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, skin cancer, and infectious diseases of the skin. Medical dermatologists are trained to identify and manage a wide range of skin disorders using diagnostic techniques such as skin biopsies and laboratory tests. They provide treatment options like prescription medications, topical creams, light therapy, and other procedures to improve and manage skin conditions. Medical dermatology plays a critical role in helping patients maintain healthy skin and prevent future complications.

What is Surgical Dermatology?

Surgical dermatology involves the diagnosis and treatment of skin conditions through surgical procedures. This includes the removal of skin cancers, moles, cysts, and other skin growths. Surgical dermatologists are skilled in a variety of techniques, including excisional surgery, Mohs surgery, and minimally invasive procedures. These professionals are adept at performing skin biopsies, excisions, and other surgical interventions to treat both benign and malignant skin conditions. Surgical dermatology not only addresses health concerns but also focuses on achieving the best possible cosmetic outcomes for patients, ensuring minimal scarring and optimal healing.

Cosmetic Treatments Not Covered By Insurance

Dermatology and medical hair loss consultations are covered by insurance. However, general male and female pattern hair loss consultation, True Hair Therapy™, PRF, Botox, fillers, chemical peels, benign skin lesion removals, microneedling, and other elective procedures are considered cosmetic in nature and thus are not covered by medical insurances. Cosmetic treatments are elective procedures primarily performed to enhance appearance rather than address medical conditions. As a result, patients should be prepared for out-of-pocket expenses for these treatments.

Financial Responsibility

All co-pays, deductibles, and co-insurances are collected at the time of service. As a patient, you are ultimately responsible for verifying your insurance is in-network with True Dermatology and obtaining the exact cost of your services at our medical clinic. We encourage you to engage with our billing department or your health insurance provider to understand the fees associated with your treatment or procedure. While we strive to provide estimates and guidance, these should not be considered definitive figures. Actual costs can vary based on the specifics of the service provided, individual insurance plans, and other factors. We strongly recommend that you inquire about any financial concerns prior to receiving services to ensure clarity and avoid any unexpected expenses. Your proactive involvement in understanding and confirming the costs of your healthcare is an essential part of the treatment process at our clinic.

Good Faith Estimate in Compliance with California Law

In compliance with California law, True Dermatology provides a Good Faith Estimate (GFE) for the expected costs of medical services. This estimate is offered to help patients understand their potential financial responsibilities before receiving care. The GFE includes a detailed breakdown of the expected charges for the planned services, including consultations, treatments, and any additional procedures. Our goal is to offer transparency and help you make informed decisions about your healthcare. While the GFE provides an approximation of costs, actual charges may vary based on your individual treatment plan, insurance coverage, and any unforeseen circumstances during your care. We encourage you to discuss any financial concerns with our billing department to ensure you have a clear understanding of your potential out-of-pocket expenses.

Customer success stories

Evlyn O.

As a teenager, I suffered from cystic acne which left some indented acne scars behind. I often felt self-conscious about those scars and decided to make an appointment with Dr. Sung after reading all his amazing reviews. I saw Dr. Sung for a cosmetic consultation and he attentively listened to all my concerns and recommended we try using fillers to fill in the small pits.

Dr. Sung and his wonderful assistant Mary made my first time getting fillers as comfortable and painless as possible. It has only been a few days since the procedure but I can already see a huge improvement in the appearance of my scars. I can finally feel confident in my own skin! Overall, I had a great experience at True Dermatology and would definitely return for all my skin needs. Dr. Sung is a kindhearted and highly-skilled dermatologist who really cares about his patients and I would highly recommend him to all my family and friends.

I am an ER physician and a couple of weeks ago my nephew developed a skin condition that I had not seen before. I consulted Dr. Sung right away and sent him a picture. He replied in less than a minute with the diagnosis and treatment. I sent it to my nephews doctors who also didn't know what it was. They were able to confirm the diagnosis and start treatment right away.

Without Dr. Sun's quick diagnosis there would have been a delay of treatment and the infection could have spread to my nephews brain. Luckily it didn't and my nephew is back at home now laughing and playing as before. I went to medical school with Dr. Sung. He was the top student in our class all 4 years and I knew if there is anyone who would have an answer it was going to be him and he did. I knew that he is still the best and is always studying the latest research papers. This is the kind of dermatologist you want taking care of your skin.
