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 discusses the types of skin cancer
By Dr. Roger Koreen
The idea of skin cancer alone is a life-changing concept for patients of all ages. However, skin cancer is one of the easiest types of cancer to diagnose, allowing many patients to catch it early enough for successful intervention. There are several types of skin cancer, and each has its own characteristics and treatment solutions. Huntington, NY area dermatologist, Dr. Roger Koreen, at Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Center, encourages patients to learn about the different types of skin cancer:
Basal Cell Carcinoma
Squamous Cell Carcinoma
Diagnosis of these types of cancer is done right here in our practice. Patients are encouraged to book annual skin cancer screenings, during which our dermatologist will evaluate the patient from head to toe to look for unusual skin growths, skin masses, or even changing moles on the body. These are areas where skin cancer may be present and do require additional services. In most cases, a sample of the skin mass is taken and used for a biopsy. This means the sample is sent to a lab for testing to look for cancerous cells. Once the diagnosis has been made, the dermatologist can then report the type of skin cancer and provide treatment options for patients to consider.
