Dermatology Partners, Mid-Atlantic’s premier privately owned (no private equity involvement) and physician-led dermatology group, is expanding its footprint across the state of Maryland. With established roots in Sparks, MD, and new locations on the horizon in Owings Mills and Westminster, the group is poised to bring its renowned brand of personalized, compassionate dermatological care to even more patients.

In the bustling landscape of healthcare, where conglomerates and corporations often overshadow individual care, Dermatology Partners stands as a beacon of physician-led excellence. Privately owned and operated by dermatologist and Mohs surgeon Dr. Daniel Shurman, we are not just another dermatology practice — we are the largest private physician-led practice group in the Mid-Atlantic region, with 33 practices. But what truly sets us apart isn’t our size; it’s our unwavering commitment to patient care.

At Dermatology Partners, we believe that exceptional patient care is not just a goal; it’s our guiding principle. As a physician-led practice group, we focus on being your hometown dermatologist and understand the importance of putting patients first in every decision. From the moment a patient schedules an appointment, they are treated with the utmost respect, compassion, and expertise. Our physicians and best-in-class administrative and support teams are dedicated to providing personalized care that addresses each patient’s unique needs and concerns, ensuring that they feel heard, valued, and supported every step of the way.

Dermatology Partners’ expansion in Maryland is a testament to our unwavering commitment to providing exceptional dermatological care to communities across the state. With our established location in Sparks, MD, and the exciting announcement of new locations in Owings Mills and Westminster we are thrilled to extend our reach and guarantee immediate availability to even more patients in need. These expansions not only signify our dedication to accessibility and convenience for patients but also our recognition of the growing demand for high-quality dermatology services in Maryland. As we continue to grow, our mission remains unchanged: to deliver personalized, compassionate care that empowers patients to achieve healthy, radiant skin and enhances their overall well-being.

What does it mean to be part of a physician-led practice group like Dermatology Partners? It means being part of a community of like-minded physicians who share a common vision of excellence in patient care. It means having the support and resources of a larger organization behind you, while still retaining the autonomy and independence to practice medicine in the way that you believe is best for your patients. It means having access to cutting-edge technologies, advanced training, and collaborative opportunities that elevate your practice to new heights.

So why should a physician sell their practice to Dermatology Partners or a physician join us? The answer lies in our unwavering commitment to preserving the integrity of medicine while embracing the opportunities of modern healthcare. As a physician-led practice group, we understand the unique challenges and opportunities that physicians face in today’s healthcare landscape. We are dedicated to supporting our physicians in their pursuit of excellence, providing them with the tools, resources, and support they need to deliver exceptional care to their patients by providing best-in-class support departments such as human resources, finance, marketing, IT and operations, customer service, procurement, training and billing – which are all kept in-house.

Partnering with Dermatology Partners goes beyond just a business transaction; it’s an invitation to become part of a community dedicated to internal growth and excellence in patient care with a focus on:

  • Commitment to Internal Growth: We dedicate 90% of our efforts towards internal enhancements, resulting in improved quality of life for our providers, minimal burnout, and boundless growth opportunities. Our growth trajectory has been organic and meticulously planned.
  • Privately Owned: Our commitment is to our patients, not to stakeholders.
  • Quality Over Quantity: Our aim is not to be the largest, but rather the best, in terms of both medical expertise and patient experience. We are driven by a passion for unlocking human potential in fostering healthy communities through exemplary dermatology teams.
  • Physician-Centric Approach: As a physician-led entity with no private equity involvement, we prioritize the needs and aspirations of our doctors. Our CEO, a seasoned dermatologist and Mohs surgeon, spearheads our growth strategy, ensuring that medical considerations remain at the forefront.
  • In-House Resources: We maintain all our resources in-house, guaranteeing optimal provider and patient satisfaction. Our leadership convenes weekly to strategize on enhancing our dermatology teams, a feat that isn’t achievable through outsourcing.
  • Emphasis on Culture: Cultivating a positive and supportive culture is paramount to us. We foster an environment where every team member feels valued and empowered to excel.

In a healthcare landscape dominated by corporate interests and bottom lines, Dermatology Partners offers physicians a different path — one guided by integrity, compassion, and a relentless dedication to patient care. Join us in our mission to redefine dermatological care in the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of patients and physicians alike, one patient at a time.
