United Skin Specialists Completes Second St. Louis Acquisition in March

Dermatology & Cutaneous Surgery joins its network of dermatology clinics 

MINNETONKA, Minn. (March 31, 2016) — United Skin Specialists LLC (“USS”), a dermatology-directed practice management group, announced today it has finalized the acquisition of Dermatology & Cutaneous Surgery, Inc., a St. Louis-based clinic, owned by Dr. Michael McCadden. This is the second acquisition in less than one month for the Minneapolis-based dermatology group with the Laser & Dermatologic Surgery Center, adding to its footprint earlier this month.

“I’m delighted to join United Skin Specialists, where quality patient care is paramount,” said Dr. McCadden. “With the services provided by USS, we’ll be able to focus even more on our patient needs and treatments and less on the day-to-day business requirements.” Dr. McCadden is a Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology and a native of St. Louis.

Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery diagnoses and treats more than 3,000 diseases related to skin, hair, and nails. These diseases include skin cancer, eczema, acne, psoriasis, irregular moles and nail infections. The clinic also performs in-office dermatologic surgery for the removal of both benign and cancerous lesions.

“We’re pleased to have another top dermatologist and clinic as part of our network in St. Louis,” said Dr. Brian Zelickson, CEO of USS. “We look forward to collaborating with Dr. McCadden to grow the business.”

Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery, Inc, will maintain its brand name indefinitely, while benefiting from the shared services and centralized administrative services USS has to offer, including financial/accounting, human resources, information systems, revenue cycle management, insurance negotiation, and marketing.

“USS is committed to a practice management platform that provides independent dermatology practices an ecosystem affording physicians the ability to maintain clinical independence and autonomy in an increasingly complex healthcare environment,” said Jim Feinstein, President and COO of USS. “Our commitment supports Dr. McCadden’s patient-first philosophy and provides additional resources to his highly qualified team members, through the latest technologies and business systems.”
