Dr. Del Rosso is one of select dermatologists that US News and World Report has chosen to feature in their directory of medical providers. This is a huge privilege for anyone, and not by accident in his case. He has also been written about in the Spotlight On section of The Dermatologist, as well as other publications.
What the Media Says About Dr. Del Rosso
The media loves this man, and we can see why when we read the bio that The Dermatologist published:
Dr. James Q. Del Rosso obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in pharmacy at St. John’s University in Jamaica, New York in 1976. He then graduated from Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Athens, Ohio, in 1982 followed by a 3-year dermatology residency through Doctors Hospital, Plantation, Florida at Atlantic Skin Disease & Skin Surgery Association (Class of 1986). He is Board Certified in Dermatology by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) and the American Osteopathic Board of Dermatology (AOBD) since February 1988. He also holds a Certificate of Added Qualification (CAQ) in Mohs Micrographic Surgery from the AOA and AOBD since 1995.
Starting January 1997, Dr. Del Rosso joined Las Vegas Skin & Cancer Clinics in Las Vegas and Henderson, Nevada. Here, he continued his practice of general medical and surgical dermatology and Mohs Micrographic Surgery that still remains very active. He has expanded his clinical research and educational activities significantly over the ensuing years. He is Adjunct Clinical Professor of Dermatology at Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Henderson, Nevada.
Dr. Del Rosso has been the Clinical Editor-In-Chief of the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology since this journal’s inception and has served for 4 years through 2012 as editor of the Yearbook of Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery. In addition, he serves on the Editorial Board of Cutis and the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology, the latter as a frequent Guest Editor of the annual Acne & Rosacea issue for the past 6 years. He is also the Co-Director of the Fall Clinical Dermatology, Winter Clinical Dermatology, and Real World Dermatology for Residents meetings held each year. He is former President of the American Osteopathic College of Dermatology, Council for Nail Disorders, American Society for Mohs Surgery, and most recently, the American Acne and Rosacea Society, where he has remained as chair of the Education Committee. Over the past 5 years, Dr. Del Rosso has served as Dermatology Residency Program Director at Valley Hospital Medical Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
We learned from US News and World Report that Dr. Del Rosso’s most common procedure is the excision of skin lesions, which is the removal of warts, moles and other noticeable abnormalities of the skin. The procedure requires either shaving and scissor removal, or for those that are thicker, laser or cryotherapy. He is also an expert on Mohs surgery to treat skin cancers.
In Dr. Del Rosso’s Own Words
We reached out to James and asked him to tell us a little bit more about himself, his interests, and his medical career. Here is what he had to say:
The SCALE Meeting in 2019 will be my second. My clinical practice focuses on medical dermatology and non-cosmetic surgical dermatology including Mohs Surgery. I am also Director of our Clinical Research Center.
My interest in dermatology started as a patient with very severe acne all during high school and college. Then during my pharmacy education as a fellow rotating at the Temple University Skin & Cancer Hospital in 1977, I became interested in formulations and also skin manifestations of systemic diseases.
I thoroughly enjoy clinical research and helping patients manage chronic skin disorders so they experience fewer flares and symptoms. There are success stories and there are sometimes failures. My favorite clinical successes have been early diagnosis of melanoma that likely saved a life, or at least reduced morbidity. In addition to clinical practice, I do a lot of teaching, presenting nationally and internationally, and writing in dermatology journals. A success there is when someone tells me that I improved their ability to understand or treat a skin disease. This makes all the time and effort I put in worth every minute. My greatest academic success was finding and developing The Scientific Panel on Antibiotic Use in Dermatology.
For relaxation, I listen to music and go to concerts, and watch movies or videos especially about musicians I love. I also am a huge hockey fan and love the Vegas Golden Knights.
James Del Rosso, MD, Will Teach At SCALE 2019 Music City
This will be Dr. Del Rosso’s second SCALE meeting. He is actually doing more than one presentation for us, meaning that you will have multiple opportunities to hear from him. Make sure to keep up with the agenda, and any updates and/or changes. We know that you will learn from Dr. Del Rosso, as he ensures that his presentations are “practical and will help other clinicians provide better care for their patients.”
