Associates in Dermatology & Aesthetic surgery started out as one practice in Northeast Florida but was born out of a desire to create strength in numbers for dermatologists. It is one of the few specialties where most physicians are either by themselves or part of a 2-4 person practice. The competitive nature of dermatology puts an invisible wall between dermatology practices that would benefit greatly from collaborating more. While most other specialties are forming MSOs and multi-specialty clinics, Dermatologists are just riding the wave of declining reimbursements and higher costs. Not to mention that many dermatologists have looked to their cosmetic revenue for stability which in recent years, due to competition and the economy, has become a fraction of its former glory. Dermatologists are still incredibly difficult to recruit if you are a 1-3 man practice which makes growing in this day and age very difficult. It is the mission of ADAS to provide Dermatologists with the strength in numbers they need without being just a number. With our experience in the physician practice management, insurance network development, business development, marketing, and physician recruiting, it made sense for us to utilize these skills to help the greatest number of Dermatologists.
Our focus as a company is on building services that add value and reduce costs for the dermatology practice. All of our services have been designed around pinch points that we have noticed over the years in dermatology practices all across the country.
