Tour Our Office


A dermatologist is a physician who has completed four years of medical school, one year of internship, and three years of specialized training to become an expert in diagnosing and treating conditions specific to your skin.

It depends upon your family history and personal degree of sun exposure. A yearly exam (or even more frequently) may be appropriate.

Our office does not require a referral, but your insurance company may require one. Please call them if you are unsure.

Dr. Knipper does not sell any products out of his office. However, in addition to writing prescriptions, he can recommend many effective and inexpensive over-the-counter products.
