We look forward to partnering on our unified mission of being the dermatology partner of choice for patients, providers, and team members.”

With the addition of DPI, APDerm, which is positioned for continued growth, has expanded its portfolio to include 24 locations and 69 providers. This includes 45 physicians and 24 advanced practitioners.

“Joining the APDerm group of locations, physicians and staff was a natural fit,” said Lynn E. Iler, MD and Co-founder of Dermatology Professionals, Inc. “We are excited for this next chapter – as we come together as one – and work together to deliver exceptional care to our patients in the New England area.”

The partnership with DPI will also expand access for patient care and provide additional resources to the APDerm growing family of practices.

“By partnering with like-minded dermatology practices, we are able to alleviate many of their administrative burdens, so their physicians and advanced practitioners can focus on what matters most – patient care,” said Samuel D. Goos, MD, Founder of Adult & Pediatric Dermatology, and Managing Partner of APDerm. “We also offer expanded resources to ensure access to the latest technology and an ever-growing network of physicians with broad experience and expertise, which contribute to improved patient satisfaction and outcomes.”
