Alert: Information for CHA patients and visitors regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus).



If you have a skin problem, the dermatology team at CHA can provide expert care. Our providers will listen carefully, answer your questions, and make sure you understand every step of your care and treatment plan, whether it’s for a lesion or rash, a condition like acne or psoriasis, a skin cancer, or other issue.

We diagnose, treat and help prevent skin disorders for patients of all ages.

Your Care at its Best

Personalized, expert care.

You can count on excellent care at CHA, from providers who work as a team and love what they do. The head of our department, Dr. Robert Stavert, was recently awarded Teacher of the Year for the entire Harvard Medical School dermatology program. All of our providers are highly qualified, and some speak fluent Spanish and Vietnamese.

Get an appointment faster, thanks to tele-dermatology.

At CHA, you won’t have to wait months to get an appointment. We use tele-dermatology to speed things up. Your CHA primary care team can take pictures of your skin issue and send them to us. We will get back to your provider within 24 hours and let them know whether the problem is something they can treat or something you should come to us for. If you do need to see us, we’ll make sure you get an appointment as soon as possible. It’s a unique solution that helps us screen out patients who don’t need to come and make more time for the ones that do.

CHA is one of the first practices in the region to use tele-dermatology. Members of our team have done research and made presentations about the service at national and international conferences.
