Premier Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery (PDCS) was founded in 1978, in the Pike Creek Valley by Dr. Peter Panzer and one employee. In 1989, the practice began to expand with the addition of two more dermatologists: Dr. Scott Panzer and Dr. Helen Mashek. Dr. Chris Conti who specializes in Mohs surgery (microscopically controlled skin cancer removal) joined next. Dr. Paul Sabini, a facial plastic surgeon followed and expanded our services to include cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. In late 2005, Apex Medical Center became PDCS’s new home. Since then, we have added two excellent dermatologists: Dr. Lori Spencer and Dr. Matthew Hanson. We now occupy a Newark and Wilmington location with plans to expand into Middletown in the fall of 2018. More recently, dermatologists, Dr. Eric Oliet and Dr. Gina Caputo have joined as well as plastic surgeon, Dr. John Roussalis. 7 physician’s assistants, 3 nurse practitioners and almost 90 support staff make up the current version of PDCS. We also incorporated in-house dermatopathology services led by Dr. Matthew Hanson and histology technician Tess Seal. We provide slide preparation, special stains and pathology readings by our board certified dermatopathologist.
In addition, we have Premier Spa & Laser Center. Our facility combines an alluring spa atmosphere and concierge service with clinical expertise for all your beauty and skincare needs. The mission of our spa is to provide clients a place where comfort, beauty, and personalized attention combine to create relaxing rejuvenating experiences.
