AUSTIN, Texas, April 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Epiphany Dermatology (www.epiphanydermatology.com) announced today it has expanded its presence in the Las Cruces, New Mexico market through its acquisition of Las Cruces Dermatology Associates, PC ("LCDA"). Epiphany Dermatology is comprised of leading dermatologists committed to improving access to great dermatologic care.
Founded in 2005, LCDA has a long history of providing quality dermatology services to patients in Las Cruces and surrounding communities. Through this acquisition, LCDA's dedicated providers and support staff have joined Epiphany in a partnership grounded in exceptional patient care.
Dr. James Kerner, a board-certified medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatologist who earned an M.D./Ph.D. at the University of Washington and completed his dermatology residency at Harvard Medical School, commented, "My staff and I are excited to partner with Epiphany, which has proven itself to be a high-quality company comprised of intelligent and caring professionals. Epiphany shares the values and goals of LCDA—to provide high-quality and compassionate care across the entire spectrum of dermatologic needs. Southern New Mexico has an epidemic of skin cancer, and by partnering with Epiphany we will expand our ability to effectively and expeditiously treat the thousands of skin cancers we are faced with annually. Epiphany has the infrastructure to help us deal with the growing regulatory burdens that would otherwise interfere with our ability to focus on what matters most—taking care of our patients and serving our community."
