About the Center

Dermatologist Birmingham Alabama - Skin Welness Center
I would like to welcome you to experience Homewood’s First Dermatology Practice. Whether for medical, surgical or cosmetic dermatology, the center combines state-of-the-art technology, innovative procedures, and a warm and friendly staff.
"I like the fact of having WiFi available in the patient waiting area. This is a good idea for business people like myself who can use the time wisely (still making money) even while waiting to be seen by the doctor. I might add that I would like to commend the staff, the wait isn't long...Thank God!!! "
