Doctor’s Approach Dermatology: 20 years of care and community
Okemos, MI – Twenty years ago Marcy Street, M.D. started a dermatology medical practice, founded on excellence, later calling it Doctor’s Approach Dermatology. Doctor’s Approach Dermatology is a group practice with the goal of providing excellent patient care while making a positive impact on the mid-Michigan community. Under Dr. Street's direction, the practice has grown and become a complete skin care center to include treatment for moles, skin cancer, acne, warts, rashes, anti-aging, and other skin and hair conditions.
Dr. Street, a Mayo Clinic trained, board certified dermatologist, is also the first fellowship trained African American female Mohs surgeon in the country. She completed her fellowship training at the University of Wisconsin. Combine Dr. Street’s experience and education with other excellent skin care professionals, some of the newest and best technology, and you get premier dermatology care. Doctor’s Approach Dermatology can boast the only fellowship trained Mohs surgeon in the greater Lansing area and the only nurse practitioner in the state of Michigan who is board certified in dermatology.
Doctor’s Approach Dermatology has invested in cutting edge technology and equipment such as Melafind for detecting melanoma, Blu-light therapy for treating precancers, and Lightwave and lasers for anti-aging. Additionally, Doctor's Approach Dermatology has the only medical spa supervised by a dermatologist, Dr. Street, who makes sure that all treatment protocols are up to date, a clear advantage which makes them successful in treating men, women, and children of all skin types.
From the beginning, Dr. Street has always been a strongly supporter for the greater Lansing community. She volunteers her time and stresses community service to her growing team of skin care professionals. "It is important to give back to the community in which we live and serve," says Dr. Street. "Dr. Street has always valued giving back to the community and we have participated in at least one annual free skin cancer screening for the past 16 years," says her longstanding office manager, Peggy Brown. Dr. Street, medical director of Doctor's Approach, regularly sponsors, and participates in, charitable events within the community and beyond. Some of the organizations supported are; Elle's Place, the Lansing Food Bank, Toys for Tots, Movers for Moms, Skin Cancer Foundation, Okemos Public Library, Hispanic Heritage Foundation, Mid-Michigan Medical Society scholarship fundraising efforts, and events to support McLaren and Sparrow hospitals. This year, Dr. Street is also the March of Dimes Fundraiser Honorary Co-Chairperson for 2014.
Doctor’s Approach is complete-care for medical and surgical dermatology with a cosmetic medical spa and skin care product line. The practice has been well established and respected for more than 20 years, with a special focus on skin cancer detection and treatment. Patients visit from all over the Midwest region for Mohs skin cancer surgery, medical dermatology, and cosmetic skin care. Although, most their patients are from Michigan, others travel from as far as Chicago, Florida, the Caribbean, and Canada for Doctor's Approach products and services.
