How Do You Celebrate the Birthday Suit: Variations in Skin Cancer Screening Practices Among Dermatologist

Dr. Evan Rieder and Dr. Adam Friedman

In this edition of the JDD podcast “Ask the Investigator,” host Dr. Adam Friedman from the GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences is joined by Dr. Evan Rieder, Assistant Professor of Dermatology at NYU Langone Medical Center and one of the few dermatologists double board certified in dermatology and psychiatry in the U.S., to discuss his recent study entitled “Dermatologist Practices During Total Body Skin Examinations: A Survey Study.” Do we all do it the same? Are we all checking every nook and cranny? Do we need better standardization for our greatest weapon to enable early and life saving skin cancer detection? Call me crazy, but this is pretty…..preeeetty… pretty important (as Larry David would say).
