– Dermatology is not just for teenagers anymore. While one might typically picture the pubescent teen looking for a bit of relief from problem skin, dermatologists today treat patients of all ages for a broad range of skin conditions, from precancerous spots or moles to unwanted cosmetic imperfections. And now, many of these skin, hair and nail issues can be treated locally at Clinton Hospital.
In an effort to increase local access to specialty care, Clinton Hospital welcomes UMass Memorial Medical Center dermatologist Jeffrey Mailhot, MD
, to its medical staff. A native of Central Massachusetts, Dr. Mailhot is familiar with the area and eager to bring his practice to Clinton Hospital’s convenient community setting.
“I am excited to work at Clinton Hospital because I enjoy being part of a smaller community and I hope that providing medical care to people closer to their homes will be a nice service and benefit for them,” said Dr. Mailhot. “Having grown up in Princeton and Rutland, MA, working in a smaller community hospital will feel a bit more like home for me. I am really looking forward to the opportunity.”
Dr. Mailhot is a general dermatologist with training in pediatrics, general dermatologic surgery and laser treatments, as well as a special interest in connective tissue disease.
He will be onsite in Clinton Hospital’s first-floor Ambulatory Care Center Tuesday afternoons from 1 to 4:30 pm and is currently accepting appointments for patients of all ages, from infants through seniors.
“We are very pleased to add yet another specialist to our medical staff at Clinton Hospital,” said Sheila Daly, RN, MS, president and CEO, Clinton Hospital. “As health insurers begin implementing tiered billing practices, Clinton Hospital remains one of the most cost-effective hospitals in the area. Providing specialized services locally is not only an added convenience for our patients, but accessing health care locally also will save our patients money on copays.”
Dr. Mailhot earned his medical degree from University of Massachusetts Medical School. After completing two years of a combined residency in internal medicine and pediatrics at Maine Medical Center, Dr. Mailhot went on to complete a second three-year residency in dermatology at UMass Memorial Medical Center – UMass Graduate Medical Education.
A member of UMass Memorial Medical Group, Dr. Mailhot is board certified in dermatology and serves on the faculty of University of Massachusetts Medical School as an assistant professor of medicine.
