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

Is there a natural treatment for eczema for Huntington area patients?
By Dr. Roger Koreen
Atopic dermatitis, more typically known as eczema, affects up to 20 percent of individuals around the world. Some patients deal with eczema for a short period, while others experience chronic flare-ups. This condition looks like a rash, but it does not always develop as such. It causes red, irritated skin that often itches, resulting in swelling, thickening, or oozing if scratched. Many patients who visit our Huntington area practiced are looking for natural treatment options to reduce eczema flare-ups.
Patients with mild eczema may benefit from the use of moisturizers that help keep the skin from getting dry and irritated. However, for others, this is not enough to keep the problem controlled. Medications may be needed on active areas of eczema, and medicated lotions may be beneficial in keeping flare-ups from occurring. Fortunately, there are also non-medical ways to address eczema in a more natural manner.
Natural eczema treatment
Natural treatment for milder cases of eczema typically involves modification of lifestyle habits. Here are a few options patients can consider if they choose to find a non-medicinal method of treatment:
Avoid taking hot baths and showers, and use a quality moisturizer afterwards to keep the skin hydrated
Avoid temperature extremes to reduce the likelihood of flare-ups
Use personal care products, laundry detergents, and other products that are free from perfumes and dyes
Determine food, chemical, and environmental triggers and avoid them if possible
Use liquid soaps and moisturizers that are hypoallergenic
Avoid itchy fabrics such as wool
