Dear Valued Patients,
In accordance with CDC and Virginia Department of Health guidelines, and for the safety of our patients, effective immediately all appointments scheduled from April 6-10 are cancelled “unless” you are specifically contacted by Dermatology Specialists with additional guidance. If you have questions or believe you have an acute or urgent condition, please call our Newport News office at (757) 873-0161 or our Williamsburg office at (757) 259-9466. We will otherwise contact you to reschedule your appointment at the earliest possible opportunity.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and your cooperation.
The Physicians at Dermatology Specialists
Dermatology Specialists was established in 1987 by the well-respected wife and husband team, Dr. Susan Mackel and Dr. Douglas Nelson. Their vision was simple -- to serve patients and referring physicians as the premier, trusted resource for medical and surgical dermatologic care. Their commitment to providing direct, compassionate patient care, using state-of-the-art techniques and technologies, in a family-oriented and professional environment, is a practice focus that continues today. Patients and referring physicians from southside Virginia to Richmond, and even to the Northern Neck, quickly recognized Dermatology Specialists as the practice of choice for the treatment and diagnosis of dermatologic disorders.
In 1998, to best accommodate growing patient needs and to introduce advanced dermatological techniques to the region, Dr. Christine Marcuson, Fellowship trained in Mohs Micrographic Surgery, joined the practice. Momentum has continued for over 30 years: a Williamsburg office opened, specialty trained physicians joined the practice, and the beloved Drs. Mackel and Nelson retired, but their vision and commitment remains constant. Dermatology Specialist's physicians are all board-certified and respected as some of the finest physicians in the region, with expertise in general dermatology as well as in specialty areas such as Mohs surgery, dermatologic laser treatments and skin rejuvenation.
Welcome to Dermatology Specialists. We appreciate your trust in us and consider it our privilege to serve our friends and neighbors with the same high standard of care that we would offer our own families.
