GULF BREEZE, Fla., Jan. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Gulf Coast Dermatology is expanding in Santa Rosa County to better serve the needs of residents in Gulf Breeze, Milton, and Navarre. Scott Shepard, PA-C, MPAS, of Navarre, has joined Board-Certified Dermatologist Neil Sandhu, MD, who opened the practice in August 2012.

He is a member of the American Academy of Physician Assistants, the Florida Academy of Physician Assistants, the Special Operations Medicine Association and the Army Flight Surgeon Association.
"Gulf Coast Dermatology has always been focused on access to care for patients who are concerned about their skin, and with the addition of Scott Shepard, a highly qualified PA, we are able to get patients in to see us quickly at any of our three Santa Rosa county locations," says supervising physician Dr. Neil Sandhu.
"We've done our best to serve almost 2,000 patients since opening here, and realize we've filled a void in patient care for our area. With skin cancer rates at an all-time high and more people becoming educated about their health the need for dermatology services is rapidly growing, especially in coastal areas like this one."
