My wife and I went into Dr. Roger Koreen's office to get our skin checked and a few problem areas treated. We did not have any skin doctor and others we tried had appointments that were over 6 months away. We were pleased to get an appointment not too far in advance. When we got there the office was pleasant and the people nice. Dr Koreen was very friendly and took his time in caring for us. Later, I came back for further treatment and again it was a pleasant experience. I thanked him for his knowledge and ability to help me out. Thanks Dr. Koreen!Marianne WMore reviews
Unfortunately, I have had many experiences with doctors. My father had recommended me to Dr. Koreen about 15 years ago. First you will be greeted by very friendly and warm receptionists. The waiting room is extremely clean and comfortable with plenty of seating, magazines and TV’s. The wait time is always reasonable (10-15mins) considering Dr. Koreen always spends quality time for exam and questions (never rushed). He always educates you on the most modern treatments and offering the best options. Dr. Koreen now treats my teenage kids after many years of superior treatment and second to none care. I strongly trust and highly recommend Dr. Koreen and his staff.Thomas MMore reviews

Huntington, NY area dermatologist offers solutions for acne
By Dr. Roger Koreen
When patients in the Huntington, NY area think of acne, they often associate it with teenagers. However, teenagers are not the only ones susceptible to acne. Acne can affect people at any age. Solutions for acne vary, and many patients want to know how they can reduce or eliminate acne on their skin.
Where acne forms
Acne typically appears on the face. However, it can develop elsewhere on the body including the back and chest.
What causes acne?
Acne is typically caused by bacteria on the skin, though some professionals also attribute its development to genetics and diet. Determining the cause of the acne helps determine which treatment solution will be more effective in addressing it.
What treatment options are available for patients with acne?
While many patients with mild cases of acne benefit from cleansing their skin twice a day with an over-the-counter acne wash with benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid, other patients require something more powerful to clear their skin. Treatment options for acne will vary dramatically as there is no “one size fits all” option. Instead, we use trial and monitoring to determine which solution is most appropriate. Some patients react to medications well while others see more improvement with topical creams. We offer the following treatments:
Many of our patients are encouraged to consider combining treatments for faster results. This may include oral medications and chemical peels or topical treatments with laser therapies.
