NEW MEMBER PROFILE: Airia Comprehensive Dermatology
Who are you?

Dr. Elizabeth Kiracofe, board-certified dermatologist, Airia Comprehensive Dermatology

Describe your Business

Dr. Kiracofe is passionate about innovation in dermatology and works to stay ahead of the curve, giving her patients access to the latest updates in medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology. She is proud to effectively diagnose and treat all dermatological conditions, including:

- Eczema - Acne - Psoriasis - Hidradenitis Suppurativa - Vitiligo - Atypical Moles - Recurrent Rashes - Skin Allergies - Excessive Sweating - Actinic Keratoses - Precancerous Lesions - Freckles - Skin Tags - Fungal Infections - Cysts - AND MORE! She also performs full body skin screenings to evaluate patients for all forms of skin cancer, including basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and the most deadly form of skin cancer – melanoma.

Performing skin cancer surgery is a particular passion for Dr. Kiracofe. She knows this is an anxiety inducing time for patients, and therefore walks them through the process step by step, from the day of diagnosis when she personally discusses all cancer results with her patients, to the day she sees them post-treatment and cancer free.

If your doors are closed, what are you doing online?
