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 area dermatologist offers phototherapy for psoriasis
Dr. Roger Koreen and the team of the Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Center in Huntington, NY see many patients who are struggling with psoriasis.
What is psoriasis?
Psoriasis is the overgrowth of skin cells that develop into white areas of plaque on the skin. Psoriasis can develop anywhere on the body, and, can be extremely embarrassing for the patients when it is in highly visible areas. It is important for sufferers to speak with a dedicated dermatologist who has experience in providing effective treatment.
How is psoriasis treated?
Treatment for psoriasis varies, depending on the type of psoriasis and the severity of the condition. There are several methods available, including topical creams and oral medications. However, many of our patients have benefitted from phototherapy. Phototherapy for psoriasis continues to grow in popularity as patients realize how effective it can be. Phototherapy targets the treatment area with specialized light to slow the growth of the affected skin cells in that area. This is a precise solution that can be used on active areas of psoriasis. Patients will notice gradual improvements in the treated area, which can last a relatively long period of time.
