The team at Mountain State Medical Specialties believes that informed patients make better decisions about their health and well-being. So when it comes to dermatology, the practice’s website offers easy-to-understand information about skin care, common diagnoses, and treatment options—empowering patients to take strong roles in their own skin health.

Prevention, the website reminds us, is the best medicine: Protect skin from the sun, keep it clean, and moisturize it often. But if medical care is needed, MSMS is there to help.

Coming up on a quarter-century of patient care, MSMS has grown from a solo practice in Clarksburg and Elkins to offer primary and specialty care at nine locations in West Virginia and Pennsylvania, with dermatology offered at six of those locations. Staff give back to their communities by volunteering at health fairs, screenings, and community charity events. — PK
