A dermatologist treats diseases of the skin. It is not uncommon to find a one-physician practice. Since dermatologists rarely make hospital rounds or emergency house calls, their appointment schedule is strictly adhered to without the sort of interruption that plagues many other physicians. A one-physician suite would be composed of three examination or treatment rooms, a waiting room to accommodate eight to ten persons, a small lab, a toilet room, a business office, a consultation room, a minor surgery, and a large storage closet for drug samples (Figure 4-107). Larger practices may include a surgery facility, as well as offer ancillary services such as laser hair removal, chemical peels, facials, Botox (botu-linum toxin) injections, sclerotherapy, Endermologie®, and massage. The reader is referred to Chapter 6 for a decentralized plan of a group-practice dermatology suite and to Figure 4-108 for a centralized plan. Figure 4-109 shows the relationship of rooms.
