Geriatric Dermatology: A Generational Approach

Having 30 years’ experience in dermatology, Dr. Berne’s clinical focus lies within the natural aging of our skin, and the specialized care and management of skin concerns in our geriatric population. Though Dr. Berne’s primary focus is Geriatric Dermatology, his expertise extends to patients aged 18 and above. As an advocate for his field, Dr. Berne is a member of the Geriatric Dermatology Expert Resource Group, the American Geriatric Society, and the Skin of Color Society, all of which contribute to his commitment to advancing dermatological care for seniors.

Geriatric dermatology is a specialized focus that concentrates on the natural aging process of senior adults. This area emphasizes the unique challenges and age-related factors that contribute to the skin health of older adults. Natural aging produces various changes in our skin that affect is health and appearance. Many of these changes are noted by the effects of sun damage, inflammatory conditions, and chronic dry / itchy skin. Geriatric dermatologists are dedicated to helping elderly patients achieve and maintain healthy skin into their golden years.

Along with a variety of other mature skin issues, Dr. Berne treats:

  • Benign lesions and tumors
  • Actinic keratosis
  • Malignant tumors
  • Chronic dry/itchy skin
  • Rashes
  • Nail disease
  • Eczema
  • Rosacea

Personalized Dermatology Care for All Ages


Skin Cancer

Unfortunately, skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the U.S. The primary cause is exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light, whether outdoors or in tanning booths. Early detection of skin cancer is the key to effective treatment – 99% of skin cancers are treatable when caught in the beginning. Our team is great at detecting skin cancer before it becomes a bigger problem and treating effectively.



Acne is the most common skin issue in the U.S., with over 50 million Americans affected each year. Severe acne can cause low self-esteem, especially during teenage and early adult years. If you suffer from acne, we offer the latest treatments to give you the beautiful skin you want.


Common Skin Growths

There are a number of common, non-cancerous skin growths that can appear on your skin, including moles, cysts, skin tags and more. These are harmless most of the time, but if you notice growths that are changing, itching or bleeding, it’s important to have them evaluated. Growths can usually be removed if they become painful or you simply don’t like the way they look.

How can I prepare for my dermatology appointment?

If coming for your first visit, please bring your insurance card, if applicable, and a legal guardian if you are under the age of 18. Please come prepared to provide your health history on your new patient paperwork as well.

What should I expect during my initial consultation?

Your first visit begins with a consultation with your board-certified dermatologist. Prior to care, we will get your health history and perform a clinical evaluation of the skin to determine which treatment options are the best fit. We will customize both a treatment plan and a skin care regimen if desired. Important pre- and post-treatment instructions will also be provided to accompany most treatments.

What insurances do you accept?

We accept a variety of major insurances for your skin care. We have examples of insurances we accept on our website. If you don’t see your insurance listed, please contact us and we will verify if we accept.

What is the difference between a deductible, copay and coinsurance?

All three are medical charges you must pay out of your own pocket, even if you have insurance. Deductibles are a specific amount you must accumulate and pay each year of covered health services before benefits are provided by your carrier. Plans may also have separate individual and family deductibles and/or deductibles for separate services. Copayments are a set fee the member pays to providers at the time services are provided. Copays are applied to office visits, emergency room visits, hospital admissions, etc. Coinsurance is a form of cost sharing. After your deductible has been met, plan will begin paying a percentage of your bills. The remaining amount, known as co-insurance, is the portion due by the patient.

How does your patient portal work?

With our patient portal, you can access and manage your appointments, get test results, update your contact/patient information and pay your bills online. Speak with one of our team members for how to gain access to your patient portal.

Can I buy skin care products at the practice?

Yes, we do carry select skin care items from industry-leading brands. Visit our practice for more information or give us a call for more information.

What is looked for during mole and skin cancer screening?

During the exam, your provider will evaluate your moles, freckles, bumps and any other areas of concern. Concerning abnormalities may include asymmetry, irregular border, irregular color, and any new or quickly changing moles. Any lesions of concern will be noted by your doctor and treatment options may be discussed.

How do cosmetics, soaps and lotions affect my eczema?

Certain environmental factors can inflame your existing eczema. While the exact product or irritant is specific to the individual, many are found commonly within the home and outdoors.  

Some irritants that are found in the home are: 

  • Shampoos 
  • Disinfectants 
  • Detergents 
  • Soaps 
  • Long exposure to hot baths or showers 
  • Man-made fibers 
  • Even some juices, meats, and fruits.  

Some irritants found outdoors are: 

  • Dust 
  • Pollen 
  • Mold 
  • Pet dandruff/hair 
  • Sun exposure 

If you suffer from eczema, it’s important to remember these irritants and try to track what is causing an outbreak. You should also investigate the ingredients of your shampoos, body washes, lotions and creams. For example, many shampoos and skin lotions use a substance called cocamidopropyl betaine as a thickener to make them more appealing to consumers. For this reason, many patients with eczema must look for soaps, skin creams and cosmetics that do not contain these eczema irritants. You can work in partnership with your dermatologist to identify which substances in these products irritate your eczema so that you can select the best options for your situation. 

What is triggering my acne breakouts?

Many factors can trigger acne breakouts. Here are a few of the most basic, leading contributors: 

  • Hormonal changes cause many of us to experience unruly breakouts in our teen years and even up to our late 20’s. 
  • Certain medications can cause acne breakouts to appear more frequently and may even take longer to get rid of them. These medicines include corticosteroids, testosterone or lithium.  
  • Diet is a leading contributing to acne breakouts. Eating foods high in starch, sugar, fat and dairy can increase the risk of adult acne. Eating more fruits and vegetables can help to decrease your risk.  
  • Stress can contribute to acne breakouts by making the breakout worse.  

What are the common signs and symptoms of psoriasis?

Psoriasis can leave your body with several noticeable signs and symptoms. Here are a few: 

  • Plaques of reddened skin 
  • Itchiness and pain on the plaques 
  • Silver-colored scaled on the patches of affected skin 
  • Discoloration and pitting in the nails 
  • Detachment of the nail from the nailbed 
  • Crusting scales on the scalp 

When should I talk to a doctor about my warts?

If you have struggled with warts in the past, you may be wondering what exactly would warrant a visit to your dermatologist, as most warts go away without treatment. However, some warts can become red and swollen. Your wart may also become painful to touch. If these symptoms occur, you should call your doctor and get the wart checked. You should also seek treatment if you notice bleeding or oozing from the wart.
