At Dermatology Associates of Kentucky (DAK) 13 is considered a lucky number — that is the number of superior staff who make up the thriving practice. Their dedicated team of 13 includes 9 board certified physicians, 3 physician-assistants, and a nurse practitioner all working together to provide patients the most comprehensive care available. All physicians have received board certification from one or more of the relevant medical specialty boards, which include the American Board of Dermatology, American Board of Internal Medicine, American Board of Dermatopathology, and American Board of Clinical and Laboratory Dermatological Immunology.
Providing “quality and compassion” since 1951, DAK’s team has the education, expertise, and experience needed to diagnose and treat a vast variety of both simple and complex disorders of the skin, nails, and hair. Among the more common are acne, precancerous skin conditions, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, malignant melanomas, and, with summer upon us, poison ivy.
For those requiring dermatopathology, there is an onsite, College of American Pathologists-accredited Dermatopathology Reference Laboratory (DRL), which has the capability of evaluating a full range of problems. Headed by dermatopathologist, Dr. Fernando de Castro, the lab strives to supply clinicians and their patients with accurate, reliable, and timely results.
DAK is also proud to offer the only surgery center in Kentucky devoted to dermatologic care with its Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC)-accredited and Medicare-certified Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC). Here, individuals can obtain outpatient surgery using the latest techniques, including Mohs micrographic surgery, which has proven to be one of the most effective methods for treating skin cancer. Their on-site Mohs surgeon, Dr. Sean Marzolf is board certified in Dermatology and has completed an advanced fellowship in Mohs Surgery and Procedural Dermatology.
If the goal is cosmetic, the duo of Dr. Laurie Massa and Dr. April Ramsey make available a wide array of procedures and products to maintain healthy and beautiful skin, such as microdermabrasion, micro-needling, Botox, Obagi Blue Peel Radiance, and the revolutionary IPL Photofacial. Laser tattoo removal is also performed.

All specialists work together, using interventional procedures, physical therapy, behavioral medicine, and pain medication, to evaluate patients with an end goal of alleviating or minimizing their pain. The Center has an on-site lab, imaging suite with a CT scanner and X-ray machine, outpatient surgery center, behavioral medicine department and rehabilitation/physical therapy department.

C&C Pharmacy is an independently owned and operated pharmacy located in the Hamburg area on Mapleleaf Drive. Chris and Consuelo Palutis, both pharmacists, own C&C and are proud to have a wonderful staff. They all bring years of experience to the industry and together work to mold it into the community and family pharmacy it is today.
C&C takes on more of the patient’s busywork than traditional, big-box location. They are a full-service pharmacy in addition to the specialized services they provide. Among these services are custom compounding, personal medication packaging, medication therapy management, immunizations and functional medicine supplementation. They also provide discount plans and home delivery.
The biggest challenge the staff faces is coordinating a patient’s care between insurances and medical professionals. More often than not, the process of managing multiple prescriptions can become overwhelming to a patient and noncompliance follows. Palutis notes, “At C&C Pharmacy, we have the utmost respect for the trust patients put in us to take care of their needs and as well as educate them about their drug therapy.”
“Collectively, as pharmacists,” says Palutis, “our inspiration is the well-being of our patients. We make it our mission to instill confidence and a sense of security in them as we work on their behalf to provide excellent pharmaceutical care and to improve their quality of life.”
