About the North Carolina Dermatology Independent Collaborative

  

When your dermatologist is independent,

The difference is personal.


   

The benefits of the collaboration include higher efficiency of care, improved quality, more effective delivery, lower costs and increased savings. These are vital to patients who, when faced with increasing costs, find that receiving the appropriate healthcare they need can be intimidating.
