Is that acne or rosacea? How to tell them apart

Welcome to our Patient Portal page!

We are beginning the process of using an electronic medical record in our practice as required by federal law.  As part of that process, we have established a "Patient Portal" in which patients can enter certain information that will help us, including your medical history.  Prior to your next office visit, we ask that you please access our patient portal by clicking on this link to complete our office forms relating to your medical history.  If we have not previously provided you with your Username and Password, please contact our office through our "Contact Us" page on this website or by calling the office at 518-690-0177.

When in our Patient Portal, you will not be able to edit the information under the tabs labeled Contact Information, Insurance, or Problem List.  We would appreciate it if you do your best to complete the information under the other 6 tabs. 

Eventually, we expect that you will be able to use our Patient Portal to obtain your medical records and test results.  However, we are not at that point yet.  We hope that our electronic medical record will allow for patients to obtain such information by sometime in 2013. 

As always, you can contact our office to answer any questions or concerns.

Redness and breakouts on your face could mean that you have acne, but not always. A skin condition called rosacea can cause acne-like breakouts and redness.

How seeing a dermatologist can help

If you think you have acne, you’ll find plenty of acne treatments online and in stores. These treatments help clear acne for many people. If your acne goes deep into your skin, however, you’ll need a dermatologist’s help. Treatment for deep acne breakouts, such as acne cysts, requires prescription medication.

Should you have rosacea, you’ll find few treatment options online and in stores. A dermatologist can help you get the right care. This care can help prevent the rosacea from worsening.

By seeing a dermatologist, you’ll also get an accurate diagnosis, so you’ll know which skin condition you have.
