Derm Clinics was originally founded in 1994 by Dr. David Tolliver as Virginias’ Dermatology in Princeton, WV. The practice expanded into Bluefield, WV and Wytheville, VA, and was joined by Dr. Thomas Myers in 2003, furthering the company’s care into Virginia. In 2005, all Virginia offices became known as Derm One, and all the West Virginia offices stayed as Virginias’ Dermatology. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Carlene Ashley joined the team in 2005, to further satisfy the abundant need of skin cancer care throughout the Virginias. With these additions, more complex surgeries could be provided throughout our offices with MOHs micrographic surgery and advanced cosmetic repair, a procedure that was previously unavailable to the region. In 2010, the practice unified Virginias’ Dermatology and Derm One, becoming what it is known as today, Dermatology Clinics of Southwest Virginias, or Derm Clinics for short. We now include five full-service offices spanning well over 100 miles throughout West Virginia and Virginia.
The practice has continued to stay ahead of the technological curve – with the implementation of an electronic medical records system in 2005, and an added histology lab in 2010, to provide more rapid turnaround on pathology reports. Since then, we have enhanced our electronic medical records system with an advanced networking structure that meets and exceeds all governmental requirements to provide faster more extraordinary care for our patients.
Clinical advancements, such as Photodynamic Therapy, in-house lab studies, Physician-tested and approved Cosmeceuticals, and IPL/laser treatments, have joined our long list of effective therapeutic procedures, providing a broad array of effective options to treat the multitude of dermatologic problems.
The allure of the lowcountry has attracted Dr. Myers and Dr. Tolliver for over 20 years, and their families have resided in the area for several years. It has always been their goal to expand the practice model to the lowcountry, and now their dream has been realized.
Derm Clinics offers comprehensive dermatologic care, surgical, medical and aesthetic, always in a timely fashion. We remain committed to maintaining state of the art diagnostic and treatment options, and are never afraid to add more resources to provide quality needed care.
