Our Practice

We blend a compassionate, attentive, friendly and welcoming approach with extensive medical expertise to deliver you with convenient, high-quality care. We are committed to serving patients in a way that works for them. Our dedicated providers and staff prioritize friendly and efficient care while ensuring accurate diagnoses, appropriate treatments, and tailored care plans. We take pride in offering comprehensive dermatology services, including specialized access to dermatopathologists for precise diagnoses from tissue samples, patch testing, and Mohs surgery. With a team of nine providers, we aim to be the preferred choice for patients, physicians, providers, and employees alike. Our core values revolve around availability, capability, and approachability, ensuring that every interaction with our practice is positive and beneficial.

Affiliated with DOCS Dermatology, one of the largest dermatology groups in the nation, our carefully selected staff is passionate about our work, and we aim to deliver expert care to patients of all ages.

Who We Are

Our provider team is board-certified to offer comprehensive, top-tier diagnosis, research and treatment. Alongside medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatologists, we have a fellowship-trained Mohs surgeon and two dermatopathologists on staff. Committed to advancing dermatological knowledge, our providers are research-focused, conducting world-class clinical research in our on-site lab. Several members of our care team specialize in patch testing, a valuable diagnostic tool for identifying triggers of skin conditions. We take pride not only in offering exceptional care and personalized treatment options tailored to each patient's unique needs but also in employing cutting-edge technology and innovative solutions to address the root causes of our patients' issues.

Our Story

Our practice was founded by our very own Julio C. Cruz, MD and Adam B. Hessel, MD with a commitment to provide expert medical care while meeting patients where they are. The addition of nine providers (and counting) has broadened our service offering to include comprehensive services in more easy-to-access clinics. By joining DOCS Dermatology, our practice now has access to additional cutting-edge research and a has support system to allow our staff to spend more time on patient care. We look forward to continuing to offer friendly, exceptional care for many years to come.


As a new patient, they are very accommodating. They even called me twice to get me an earlier appointment. Intake person was on top of everything and the doctor was welcoming and thorough. Looking forward to a long relationship with the practice.
