Dermatologists are trained to diagnose and treat over 3000 conditions of the skin, hair, and nails. At Galt Dermatology we provide medical dermatology services for both adults and children of all ages. We also provide surgical services, cosmetic dermatology services, and personalized skin care programs.
Conditions such as acne, birthmarks, dermatitis, warts, vitiligo, eczema, and insect bites are common conditions seen in children. Adults commonly have other conditions such as skin cancers, precancers, rosacea, psoriasis and shingles.

Benefits Of Our Direct Care Model
Time For Your Skin™
Per CMS, Medicare patients must be billed under the specific Medicare guidelines and, at this time, cannot be billed under our Time For Your Skin™ direct care dermatology model.
We have partnered with the office of Peter L. Babinski MD, PA to provide services to patients covered by Medicare. This practice is conveniently located at our same location and you can book directly with Babinski Dermatology on our website.
Time For Your Skin™
Time For Your Skin™ is our direct care dermatology pricing model. We offer 15-minute and 30-minute appointments to address your medical concerns. If a minor procedure such as cryosurgery for the treatment of precancers or biopsies is required, then your appointment will be upgraded to a procedural visit. Minor procedures are not individually charged. For example, if you need multiple biopsies, you are charged the corresponding procedural visit based on the appointment length and are not charged for each biopsy.
We are required to bill Medicare rates for those patients covered by Medicare. Dr. Villacorta accepts Medicare patients under the practice of Peter Babinksi MD PA, which shares office space with Galt Dermatology.
All new patients are scheduled for a full 30-minute medical dermatology appointment to allow sufficient time to review your medical history, perform a full-body skin examination, and address all your dermatological concerns.
Follow up appointments are scheduled based on your specific needs and are 15-minute or 30-minute appointments.
Cosmetic appointments are billed by procedure and scheduled accordingly.

In addition, we have partnered with the practice of Peter L. Babinski MD PA, which is conveniently located at our office to provide dermatology services for patients covered by Medicare.

Yes, you can still use your health insurance for prescriptions at your pharmacy.
We try to prescribe generics as much as possible. That being said even some generic medications have increased dramatically in price. If that is the case, we will work to find alternatives medications or pharmacies to assist you.
We have negotiated a special rate with the pathology lab for $55 per specimen. We collect this fee on behalf of the patient and pay the lab directly so patients shouldn’t receive another bill.
If you wish to use your commercial medical insurance for laboratory fees then please inform the office at the time of your visit. Keep in mind that depending on your insurance the commercial insurance rate may be higher than our negotiated rate.
Payment is due at checkout for all medical, cosmetic, and surgical visits. We accept all credit, Health Savings Account (HSA), and Flex Spending Accounts (FSA) cards. We will hold your credit card information in our secure processing system at the time of booking. Charges will be applied for no-shows and cosmetic and surgical deposits. HSA and FSA cards must be used for non-cosmetic services. Some procedures may require a deposit at the time of booking.
All new patients require a consultation (30-minute visit) to review medical history and to receive a full skin examination. Please arrive early to complete the new patient paperwork. Certain appointments such as surgical and cosmetic procedures will require a deposit to reserve your appointment.
We believe that you should be seen by a board certified physician at each visit. Our practice does not employ any physician assistants or nurse practitioners.
If you wish to file a claim for your visit through your health insurance then please inform our staff at the time of your visit. Depending on your insurance, your visit may be covered as an out of network visit. We charge a small $25 fee for our time to code your visit and file a claim on your behalf. If the claim is accepted by your insurance then all or some of the charges may get reimbursed directly to you. You should also receive an explanation of benefits (EOB) in the mail from your insurance company.
