Surveys have shown that U.S. adults frequently search online for health information, but are frustrated by the large volume of information they find from questionable sources. A majority of health consumers state that they would prefer to get that information directly from their own doctor. Unfortunately, a majority of physicians report finding it difficult to provide education during an office visit and most medical practice websites lack health information.
Arizona Skin Specialists understands the importance of patient education (http://www.vivacare.com) and has taken measures to improve clinical care and patient satisfaction. It now provides its patients with convenient, online access to educational resources on its own practice website.
The physicians of Arizona Skin Specialists join other dermatologists who use the “From Your Doctor” service from Vivacare to manage their patient education content. Dr. Duane Whitaker and Dr. Joseph Shrager are both board certified in Dermatology, with Dr. Whitaker being certified in Dermatological Surgery as well. Dr. Mark E.B. Johnson is board certified in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology.
