Our Providers

At Silver Falls Dermatology you can be assured that you’ll see exactly the right provider at just the right time. We’ve built a team of dermatology-trained nurse practitioners, physician assistants and doctors to address your dermatological concerns.

Board-Certified Dermatologists are Medical Doctors or Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine who have served at least a three-year Residency in Dermatology after Medical School, and have passed exams given by the American Board of Dermatology, the American Osteopathic Association, or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

Resident Doctors are licensed Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine who are serving an additional three-year Dermatology Residency to become Board-Certified Dermatologists.

Silver Falls Dermatology is the only private practice in Oregon to offer a prestigious Dermatology Residency Program, one of the most sought-after residencies in all of medicine. Dermatology Residents are supervised by our Medical Director, John Young, MD and Director of Dermatological Surgery, Bill Lear, MD.

A Dermatology Resident:

  • Sees patients;
  • Diagnoses more than 3,000 diseases that affect the skin, hair, and nails;
  • Performs surgical procedures such as skin and nail biopsies, excisions, cryotherapy and injection of fillers for cosmetic purposes.

Dermatology-Trained Nurse Practitioners (NP, FNP, NP-C, ARNP, or APN) are registered nurses (RN) who have completed additional graduate education, either a masters or a doctorate degree in nursing. They have advanced education and clinical training to diagnose, treat and prescribe and perform medical and cosmetic procedures on patients of all ages. Nurse practitioners practice independently or in collaboration with a physician. We train the majority of our nurse practitioners at our Salem location.

A Dermatology Physician Assistant (PA) receives their training through a College of Medicine Physician Assistant Program and many hold a Master’s Degree in Physician Assistant Studies with a concentration in Dermatology. Many PAs work independently within the dermatology office much like a staff dermatologist seeing a wide range of medical, surgical and cosmetic patients, but always under physician supervision. PAs also hold a prescribing license and are able to write prescriptions under state guidelines.
