Todd Rozycki, M.D. April Rasnic, F.N.P. Duane Wampler, P.A.
An N.P. (Nurse Practitioner) and P.A. (Physician Assistant) provides high-quality, cost-effective and individualized care for patients, families and communities. N.P.'s and P.A.'s (also called Advanced Practice Clinicians) are authorized to practice across the nation, diagnose and develop patient treatment plans and have license to prescribe medications.
Dermatology Advanced Practice Clinicians are board certified and can perform an invaluable role in Dermatology and optimize physician efficiency. The well-trained Advanced Practice Clinician is a highly effective adjunct to patient evaluation and management, patient education and is capable of performing routine Dermatologic procedures. When successfully integrated into a Dermatologic practice, the Advanced Practice Clinician enhances patient care and satisfaction and permits the physician to focus on more complex medical decision-making, technically advanced procedures and surgeries. Todd Rozycki, M.D. has experience working alongside N.P.'s and P.A.'s during his Dermatology residency at Mayo Clinic, and has realized the complementary role that the Advanced Practice Clinician provides to the specialist physician. He has successfully practiced with N.P.'s and P.A.'s for over 7 years, and continues to build and improve an integrated team approach to providing high-quality Dermatologic health care.
Dr Rozycki’s goal in adding Advanced Practice clinicians to his team is to reduce waiting times for his patients, improve access and allow him to focus on more complex medical and surgical cases. April Scott and Duane Wampler are both Dermatology Advanced Practice Clinicians who are highly trained and have completed a post-graduate internship with Todd Rozycki, M.D. and are able to meet these needs. Extensive clinical training alongside the physician, in combination with rigorous academic study has prepared our Advanced Practice Clinicians to practice with Todd Rozycki, M.D. This is in addition to N.P. and P.A. graduate level education and board certification. Their training includes skin cancer detection and screening, diagnosis and management of chronic inflammatory dermatoses, and treatment of many common dermatologic ailments. Additionally, Todd Rozycki's team works closely together to develop and maintain the best treatment plan for each patient. Todd Rozycki, M.D. and his Advanced Practice Clinicians discuss cases daily, review up to date Dermatology literature weekly, and analyze where physician input is needed.
Your trust and confidence in our team is of utmost importance to us and we appreciate you as our patient.
