United Skin Specialists Completes Third St. Louis Acquisition

West County Dermatology joins its network of dermatology clinics

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (July 6, 2016) — United Skin Specialists LLC (“USS”), a dermatology-directed practice management group, announced today it has completed the acquisition of West County Dermatology, located in the St. Louis suburb of Chesterfield, Missouri. This is the third St. Louis acquisition for the Minneapolis-based dermatology group, which also includes Laser & Dermatologic Surgery Center, and Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery, since March 2016.

“The team at West County Dermatology is thrilled to be part of the United Skin Specialists partner network, where exceptional patient care is paramount,” said Dr. Daniel Ring, owner of West County Dermatology. “Joining the USS network allows us to focus even more on patient care and less on the day-to-day business requirements.”

West County Dermatology specializes in general and cosmetic dermatology. The clinic treats skin conditions, including skin cancer, rosacea, acne, eczema, warts, moles and birthmarks. It also provides cosmetic dermatological services, including BOTOX®, fillers, laser treatments, chemical peels and skin care products. The clinic’s board-certified practitioners include Dr. Daniel Ring, Dr. Susan Blattel, Dr. Wayne Breer, Dr. Pooja Doorward, and nurse practitioner Gina Indelicato.

“West County Dermatology’s practitioners are committed to superior patient care and overall skin health, which are hallmarks of all the clinics in our network,” said Dr. Brian Zelickson, CEO of USS. “We’re delighted to welcome Dr. Ring and his exceptional staff to the USS family.”

West County Dermatology benefits from the USS shared services and centralized administrative services while maintaining its brand name indefinitely. The shared services include centralized financial/accounting services, human resources, information systems, revenue cycle management, insurance negotiation, and marketing.

“Physicians are attracted to our boutique approach to practice management and network for a variety of reasons,” said Jim Feinstein, President and COO of USS. “This includes clinical independence and autonomy, a decrease in administrative burdens, and teams dedicated to patient and employee support services.”
