VIDEO: Collaboration with primary care helps colleagues and patients




ASHEVILLE, N.C. – Building bridges with colleagues in other specialties, especially primary care, helps patients and improves relations among specialties, Dr. Lisa Garner said in an interview at the annual meeting of the Noah Worcester Dermatological Society.

“Communicating is key for patient care,” she said. Dr. Garner, a dermatologist in private practice in Garland, Tex., chaired the American Academy of Dermatology’s Perceptions of Dermatology task force, which assessed perceptions of dermatologists and dermatology within the house of medicine from 2012 to 2014.

Dr. Garner had no financial conflicts to disclose.
