In the ever-evolving world of dermatology, the role of practice management companies such as DermCare Management is becoming increasingly crucial. Offering a full suite of support services, DermCare allows dermatologists and specialists to focus on patient care and drive their continued success. We had the opportunity to catch up with Dr. Marty Zaiac, a veteran dermatologist with over 30 years of experience, at the 2023 AAD Annual Meeting in New Orleans. Dr. Zaiac shared his insights on the changing landscape of dermatology and how DermCare has positively impacted his practice.

- Opportunities for dermatology residents
- Mentorship for young dermatologists
Advancements in Dermatology Treatments
Dr. Zaiac discussed the remarkable progress in dermatology, particularly in the development of biologics and targeted therapies, such as Jack inhibitors, interleukin inhibitors, and tumor necrosis factor inhibitors. He stated, "There's a lot of new [treatments] in the market, and it's a balance of what to use. They all have little specific things about them that make them maybe more acceptable for one patient versus another."
The DermCare Management Difference
When asked about the advantages of collaborating with DermCare, Dr. Zaiac emphasized the partnership's impact on patient care. He explained, "My time is spent now on patient care. I don't have to worry about the administration aspects of it... So for me, it's been very helpful because I can focus on what I like to do and not see patients." This dedication to patient care has resulted in enhanced quality of care and increased patient satisfaction.
Opportunities for Dermatology Residents
Dr. Zaiac and Steve Estevez, DermCare's VP of Marketing, also examined the influence of DermCare on residents and new dermatologists. DermCare offers a unique opportunity for residents to explore various aspects of dermatology practice across different states, helping them find the ideal match for their career objectives. Dr. Zaiac mentioned that "DermCare now has practices in three different states, Florida, Texas, and California... So at DermCare, we have a lot of variation of different types of practices, more medical, more cosmetic, more surgical, and they have a lot to offer."
The Mentorship Advantage
In addition to logistical benefits, partnering with DermCare also presents invaluable mentorship opportunities for young dermatologists. Dr. Zaiac, who enjoys guiding residents, shared his insights: "It keeps you sharp. If I was by myself and not training these doctors, I would be getting into a routine. They come, they ask questions, we share articles. So it's a great interaction for both of us. I learn just as much as they do when we do these types of things."
DermCare Management's partnership with dermatology practices like Dr. Zaiac's is revolutionizing the field, offering comprehensive support that enables physicians to concentrate on patient care and drive success. With innovative advancements in treatment options, a collaborative environment for residents, and the mentorship of experienced professionals, the future of dermatology is both bright and promising.
