About Same Day Dermatology
For the convenience of our patients, University of Utah Dermatology offers a Same Day Dermatology clinic. This allows a patient to schedule an appointment with a board-certified dermatologist when they need it most. Our clinic is the first and only in Utah to offer urgent outpatient access to skin care.
Why Same Day Dermatology?
The complexity of skin disease coupled with minimal dermatologic exposure in training can often leave non-dermatologists uncomfortable and ill-equipped. This can lead to inappropriate treatments, unnecessary prescriptions and unwanted or unnecessary side effects. At the Same Day Dermatology clinic, a subspecialist offers immediate care for the sickest of patients. Having a dermatologist evaluate skin conditions early often leads to an earlier diagnosis, the most effective treatment (and only when necessary) and better outcomes.
Same Day Dermatology vs. The Emergency Department
If you have a life-threatening condition, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. The Same Day Dermatology clinic is designed for people whose main concern is a skin condition. Last year 60% of our patients would have gone to the ED if Same Day Dermatology had not been offered. Rather than ED expensive visits, which don't utilize the life-saving services available at the ED, our clinic offers an expert at a significantly lower cost while minimizing waiting by offering a specific appointment time. These visits save patients and the health system money while allowing everyone to be seen by the team best equipped to serve them.
