Psychology and Dermatology: Changing the Lives of Our Patients for the Better presented by Richard G. Fried, MD, PhD

In 20 years of experience in psychology and dermatology, probably the single most important thing we give patients is control, hope, demonstrable clinical change. What we’ve found in studies that we’ve done here and throughout the country is we just don’t make people feel better, we actually change the functional level of our patients. Whether it’s treating chronic itch, whether it’s treating beliefs of infestation, whether it’s using fillers – Botox. We generally change physiologically how people feel and function.
