March Scoop at Skin Solutions Dermatology

Skin Solutions Dermatology will continue seeing patients at all of our offices across Middle Tennessee during this uncertain time. However, if you have at least TWO of the following symptoms: Fever, Cough, Shortness of Breath or Sore Throat, please DO NOT attend your appointment. Instead, please call us to ask about how you can schedule a Televisit or reschedule your appointment for two weeks after you do not have these symptoms. We appreciate your continued patience as the situation changes daily. Thank you! 

In order to promote social distancing within our own office, for the safety of our patients and our care team, we are implementing telemedicine as a choice for patients starting this week. Starting on Wednesday, March 18, 2020, patients who call to reschedule their appointment will be offered a virtual visit so they will be able to see their provider from the comfort of their own home. We will do our best to keep you informed as these changes continue to roll out. We appreciate your continued patience as we navigate this uncharted territory together. Patients can access their Televisit through the following:

Provider Spotlight: Carrie Byrd, NP

Learn more about Carrie in our Q&A below!

What attracted you to work in the field of Dermatology?
I began my career as a Family Nurse Practitioner in Primary Care, in Columbia, Tennessee. Working in Primary Care enabled me to explore many different areas of specialty care and it was this experience that helped me discover my passion for Dermatology! I decided to join the team at Skin Solutions in October of 2018 and quickly found this was a great fit. I love the direct patient care, the surgical aspect, and the team here at Skin Solutions.
How long have you been practicing?
I have been a NP for a little over 5 years and I have been with Skin Solutions since October 2018.
Where Are You Originally From?
I am originally from Waverly, TN.
How Do You Like To Spend Your Spare Time?
Outside of the practice, I enjoy spending time with my husband, traveling, listening to live music in Nashville, being outdoors, and perhaps my number one favorite pastime…Spending lazy days on the lake (with plenty of 6%+ zinc sunscreen of course)!

What is your number one recommendation for people wanting to maintain healthy skin?
Consistency is the key. You have to be diligent about sticking with your daily routine to see results. Additionally, I ALWAYS encouraged people to use a daily zinc-based sunscreen.

Do you have a favorite product?  If yes, why? 
My favorite product would for sure have to be our Elta products. I love that they have face, body, lip, and tinted options!
What is your favorite thing about working at Skin Solutions Dermatology?
My favorite part about working at Skin Solutions Dermatology is the opportunity to work with such an amazing team. I really feel like my coworkers at Skin Solutions are a part of my extended family.
