Tim Ioannides is a dermatologist that is certified by the American Board of Dermatology. He is the founder of a practice called Treasure Coast Dermatology that has multiple locations. The practice has a main focus of treating skin cancer. At the University of Miami School of Medicine, he completed his medical degree.
IdeaMensch conducted an interview with Dr. Ioannides and asked him several questions. Dr. Ioannides explains that he was inspired to open his practice because he wanted to focus on the medical side of dermatology rather than the cosmetic. Although when he first opened his practice, he had to maintain financial stability to keep running his practice. To keep his practice afloat, botox and other cosmetic procedures were performed by Ioannides.
Waking up at six in the morning on most days, Ioannides starts his day with a workout, he explained during the interview. He helps his wife with their kids and heads to work. Working in a variety of offices, he is happy that he gets to work with familiar, friendly staff members each day. While seeing patients, he listens to their suggestions and tips on improving his office environment and even improvements to his surgeries and treatments.
When Dr. Ioannides was asked which trend is most exciting to him, he responded by saying that he was involved in some research of a new skin cancer vaccine. According to Dr. Ioannides, skin cancer is an epidemic that might be an infectious disease or at least act like one, so he is excited to be a part of this medical advancement to save a large number of lives.
Dr. Ioannides prefers to not use electronics in practice, because he says focusing on electronics, during a patient’s visit, takes away attention from the patient. He says writing letters to his patients adds an element of humanity that is much needed.
