Primary Care Q & A

What is a primary care doctor?

Primary care providers have a background in family medicine or internal medicine and specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of a wide range of health conditions. They are your first contact when you’re sick or have health concerns.

Mark Nowacki, MD, at Skin and Body Curvatures is board-certified in internal medicine and offers individualized care designed to manage existing chronic conditions, provide preventive services such as flu shots, examine your symptoms during a sick visit, and create customized treatment plans to optimize your wellness.

What are internal medicine services?

Internist Dr. Nowacki offers comprehensive services for adult patients. His internal medicine specialization makes him well-equipped to provide preventive care, diagnose, and manage a wide range of diseases in a primary care setting, often without needing to refer you to other doctors. He also provides medically supervised weight loss to help patients reach their goal weight.

At the integrative Skin and Body Curvatures office, you can receive internal medicine services in addition to aesthetic medicine, so you can look and feel your best. Dermatological services are also available, including skin tag removal, skin lesions, or skin problems like acne.

What are skin tags, and how are they removed?

Skin tags are common in both men and women after midlife. They are small pieces of hanging skin that can appear anywhere on your body but tend to grow where your skin rubs against other skin or your clothing. While skin tags are benign tumors and not dangerous, you may wish to remove them for aesthetic reasons.

Skin tag removal methods include:

  • Over-the-counter medications
  • Excision - cutting the skin tag with a scalpel
  • Cryotherapy - freezing the skin tag with liquid nitrogen
  • Cauterization - burning the skin tag with electrolysis

If your skin tags are making it difficult to shave or affect your appearance, contact Skin and Body Curvatures to have them removed during a primary care visit.

Should I worry about skin lesions?

Skin lesions are areas of skin with abnormal growth or appearance compared to the rest of your skin, usually caused by an infection. The most common types of skin lesions include:

  • Acne
  • Cold sore (herpes)
  • Eczema
  • Hives
  • Contact dermatitis
  • Impetigo
  • Psoriasis
  • Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)

Some skin lesions, such as MRSA, lead to serious health complications if left untreated. Other skin lesions may be a sign of skin cancer. If you notice any changes to the appearance of your skin or a mole, in particular, you should reach out to Skin and Body Curvatures for a physical exam to diagnose the cause of your skin condition. Once diagnosed, you receive an effective treatment.
