Skin Care Specialty Physicians has been serving the residents of the greater Baltimore area for the last ten years. The practice began with a single physician, Dr. Saif Syed, providing dermatology care and Mohs surgery (a specialized technique for the removal of skin cancers).

Dr. Syed’s vision to “provide the ideal environment for the physician to care for the patient” has attracted other providers, who share this vision, to join the practice. At present, there are three dermatologists, a reconstructive surgeon, and a dermatology nurse practitioner. A second Mohs surgeon is set to come on board in August 2015.

Due to the growth at Skin Care Specialty Physicians, a second location was added in 2014, just a few blocks south of the main office on York Road. Additionally, construction is currently underway at the Galleria Towers location for the addition of a surgical center.
