About Us

Joyce N. Sumner, PA-C

 

On Why Dermatology
I see the skin as a “window to the body”.  Much of my clinic time is spent screening for skin cancers and treating common hair, skin and nail conditions.  I have a special interest in allergic contact dermatitis and have received extra training through the American Contact Dermatitis Society to help patients identify and avoid contact allergens.

On Relationships with my Patients
I believe a caring and trusting provider-patient relationship is an integral part of the healing and preventative process.  I am grateful when patients include me to be a part of their team.  It is my goal to come up with treatment plans alongside my patients that help them reach a better quality of life.
