Why Choose Valley Dermatology

Dermatologist vs. Nurse Practicioner

Many healthcare providers claim to specialize in skin care but what makes a Board Certified Dermatologist different?

Dr. Ecklund and Dr. Jones require the following credentials (which set them apart from someone who simply claims to specialize in skin care):


4 years of college


4 years of medical school


4 years of residency


Re-certification every 10 years

What is a PA-C?

Physician Assistants are healthcare providers who are educated at medical schools, in the medical model. They are trained to diagnose and treat illness, as well as provide preventative care in partnership with a physician supervisor.

The “C” indicates that a PA is certified by the National Commission of Certification of PAs. This certification requires 100 hours of continuing medical education every two years, along with passing a national recertification exam every six years to maintain that very important “C”.
