At Dermatolgic Surgery Center we are currently scheduling new patients for all providers with very little wait time. Book Today!


Dermatology Surgery and Cosmetics of NE Ohio will be available for minor injuries and medical needs. Cuts, burns, anything needing stitches, and most importantly wound care for your elderly family members. Let’s keep everyone out of urgent care and the ERs so those resources are available for the COVID-19 outbreak. We are currently still planning to be open on a limited basis to help the community. We also offer virtual dermatology visits so you can keep your appointment from the comfort and safety of your home. Call the office for information or to set up a virtual visit: 330-239-4350
