Vail Dermatology renames Basalt location

Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

BASALT, Colorado – Vail Dermatology has re-named its Roaring Fork Valley location Aspen Dermatology. The office is also moving to a new location, 261 Robinson Street, C100, in Basalt.

Karen Nern, M.D. founded Vail Dermatology in 2004, and expanded her practice to the Basalt area in 2010.

Vail Dermatology and Aspen Dermatology will become independent clinics as of Nov 1. Each practice will continue to offer appointments with Nern and fellow board certified dermatologist Clare Foss, M.D., as well as Sarah Youngblood, PA-C. Both clinics will provide dermatologic care including medical procedures such as diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer, psoriasis, acne, warts, hair conditions, moles, excema, rashes, as well as Mohs surgery. Cosmetic services offered include photofacials, dermal needling, fractional resurfacing, CoolSculpting, chemical peels, and more.

“The local support of our clinic has been overwhelming; we cannot express enough gratitude to the Roaring Fork community. We look forward to many years of continued excellence within the mountain region,” Nern said.

“There will be a number of similarities between the two practices; the wide open spaces, waiting rooms with beautiful windows looking out on the mountains of Colorado, the warm welcoming staff, and the newest equipment and technologies. However, Aspen Dermatology will have larger examination and treatment rooms, a greatly expanded skin shop for patients’ prescription and non-prescription skin care needs. There is also one fun new item for the cosmetic patient who wants to keep a low profile – our new ‘secret door’,” said Tom Nern of Vail Dermatology. “We have become more local in our services, and feel that the name of our practice should reflect the changes. Patients will no longer need to drive to Vail for any services we offer.”
