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

Skin cancer treatment from your Huntington, NY dermatologist is designed for optimal results
Historically, melanoma has been the form of skin cancer that most people fear. In truth, any form of skin cancer is very concerning. Dr. Roger Koreen has been providing patients of all ages with focused care for many years. In our practice, we provide skin cancer treatment in a meticulous manner, tailoring care to the needs of each patient. Additionally, patients who visit our Huntington, NY office benefit from instructions that will assist them in preventing and detecting signs of skin cancer.
Some of the factors that determine the way skin cancer is treated include:
The type and stage of skin cancer detected
The potential for aggressiveness
The area of the body where skin cancer has developed
In addition to the consequences of skin cancer, one of the aspects of diagnosis that may cause anxiety is the belief that surgery is the only option for treatment. At the Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Center, treatment for this disease may involve surgical removal. However, there is also the possibility that a lesion detected early can be treated in with non-surgical therapy such as:
Topical chemotherapy, in which abnormal cells are targeted with application of a prescribed medication
Cryosurgery is a non-surgical procedure that freezes abnormal cells with liquid nitrogen
Photodynamic therapy, or light therapy, is often used to treat pre-cancerous lesions called actinic keratosis. This in-office procedure involves the application of medication to the affected area. We allow this to be absorbed for a few hours, and then target abnormal cells with light.
Topical immunotherapy may be prescribed as an adjunct to other therapies, working in concert with the body's natural healing capacity.
Years of clinical practice and a clear understanding that each patient has unique needs makes Dr. Koreen a wonderful resource for patients with skin cancer. When you visit us, you receive a high level of care through which optimal results are achieved. Throughout your diagnosis and treatment, we are here to support you and answer any questions you have.
