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 patients ask how to treat psoriasis
By Dr. Roger Koreen
Patients in Huntington, NY who are interested in how to treat psoriasis are encouraged to learn more from the team of Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Center. Dr. Roger Koreen and the staff at our practice have years of combined experience in helping patients with general and cosmetic dermatology solutions. Treatment of psoriasis often requires the assistance of a professional who specializes in dermatological concerns.
Psoriasis is caused by a faulty immune system. The immune system triggers excessive skin cell growth, causing large red and white areas of plaque to form on the skin. These areas can become inflamed, itchy, and uncomfortable – while also greatly affecting one’s appearance. Areas of psoriasis can be embarrassing for those who have it.
Options for treating psoriasis
The first step in treatment of psoriasis is an evaluation to determine the type of psoriasis. There are many types and a thorough examination and discussion of family and medical history can help the doctor plan treatment. Patients with mild cases of psoriasis may see improvement with the application of topical treatments, while other patients with more severe cases may want to consider oral medications, phototherapy treatments, and other options.

Addressing conditions such as psoriasis is important to improve the health, condition, and appearance of the skin.
