FOR EVERYTHING UNDER THE SUN
Dr. Jackie Tripp is a Board Certified licensed dermatologist and a Diplomate of the American Board of Dermatology. His practice is located in Delray Beach, Florida, situated immediately north of Boca Raton, and a half-hour south of West Palm Beach.
Dr. Tripp has over 20 years of experience in dealing with all aspects of general medical dermatology. He has completed a Melanoma Fellowship at the New York University Skin and Cancer Unit and has received extensive training in evaluating and treating pigmented moles and all types of skin cancer.
He is also Board Certified by the Dermatology Section of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology.
The practice offers the latest in medical technology, including a state-of-the-art SRT 100+ superficial radiation treatment device to treat skin cancer without surgery, as well as blue light photodynamic therapy. We also employ digital dermoscopy and the digital recording of suspicious lesions. Additionally, we are a paperless office, featuring Electronic Medical Records (EMR). This allows for improved patient care, immediate delivery of consult notes to referring doctors, and electronic transmission of prescriptions directly to the pharmacy.
Dr. Tripp does not use Physician Extenders. Physician Extenders are health care professionals, such as Physician Assistants and Registered Nurses, who see patients in place of the doctor. Every single patient is seen and treated personally by Dr. Tripp at every visit.
Dr. Tripp’s patient-centered approach focuses on providing the highest quality of modern dermatologic care while emphasizing a personable environment where patients are made to feel comfortable and all of their concerns addressed.
Dr. Tripp cares about everything that impacts the patient experience, including such concerns as prescription costs, and always takes the extra time to factor the costs of medications when writing prescriptions for patients.
ATTENTION TO DETAIL
Dr. Tripp takes extensive photographs of EVERY SINGLE suspicious lesion, precancer or cancer that is treated with liquid nitrogen, biopsied, or removed. In addition to evaluating new growths and lesions, photographs from the previous visit are always reviewed during the follow-up visit to ensure that the cancers and precancers resolve with the treatment that was performed, and if any lesion does not resolve, further measures will be taken. This is a time-consuming and detail-oriented process that Dr. Tripp feels is extremely important and allows for earlier detection of skin cancer or skin cancer recurrence. In general, the earlier a skin cancer is detected, the smaller its size, and the easier it is to deal with.
