About the DermBoard
About Us & Our History
DermBoardâ€™s mission is to educate the public about common skin problems. Compared to other similar sites, you have the option to directly ask a practicing dermatologist certified by the American Board of Dermatology any general question about the skin, free of charge.
DermBoardâ€™s Editor Viseslav Tonkovic-Capin, MD, or simply Dr. T, loves teaching, as well as learning from his colleagues, nurses, and patients. He believes that a well-informed and educated patient will get the most out of their appointment with her or his health care provider.
