Our acne clinic is currently at full capacity and we are unable to accept new patients at this time with the exception of HMO referrals for which we have set aside a few appointments. We apologize for this inconvenience and recommend consulting with www.AAD.org for other dermatology groups in your area.
ACCUTANE: We can prescribe Accutane / Generic accutane / isotrtinoin to very select patients that need the treatment. Please check the website www.IpledgeProgram.com to read about the many requirements. This is a government mandatory program which requires monthly office visits, monthly blood tests, and monthly login to the website to get refills. The treatment is usually 4-6 months long. It is generally covered by all insurance, except if there is a high deductible then the costs still go to the patient.
The medication is generally safe and effective, but requires you to be aware of potential side-effects.
