ABOUT US

Associates in Dermatology began 2017 with four physicians being named as 2017 Top Docs in Dermatology. Dr. Jeffrey P. Callen, Dr. Cindy E. Owen, Dr. Courtney R. Schadt, and Dr. Carol L. Kulp-Shorten were nominated by their peers in The Greater Louisville Medical Society to this prestigious list of the-best-of-the-best.
Our dermatology practice is the only one in Kentucky that includes physicians who are also full-time faculty members of the Division of Dermatology at the University Of Louisville School Of Medicine.  As full-time faculty, our physicians are required to maintain expert knowledge of the most recent advances in dermatologic care, and the mechanisms with which those treatments are administered.  For our patients, this translates to being offered the most cutting-edge treatment in the most cost-effective and efficient manner possible.
Associates in Dermatology is a practice of leaders and innovators.  For instance, Dr. Jeffrey P. Callen is regarded as one of the leading authorities in the country on rare skin conditions. He is the recipient of the 2017 Master Dermatologist Award from the American Academy of Dermatology and has authored or coauthored over 400 scientific articles.  Dr. Callen has served as the editor or deputy editor of several dermatology periodicals and is currently the Associate Editor of JAMA Dermatology.  Now in its fifth edition, his book, Dermatologic Signs of Systemic Disease, was just published.  Since 1988, Dr. Callen has served as the Division Chief of Dermatology at the University of Louisville, and on December 1st, 2016, began his two-year term on the board of the Accreditation Review Committee (ARC) of the Accreditation Council of Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).
Dr. Callen is not alone in his accolades or his contributions to the dermatology community.  In 1981, after completing his fellowship training with Dr. Frederic Mohs in Wisconsin, Dr. Michael W. McCall, Sr., became the first physician in the region to offer Mohs Micrographic Surgery to patients afflicted with skin cancer.  In 1989, he founded the University of Louisville Mohs Surgery Fellowship and trained fellows continuously until his retirement in 2013.  Over the course of his career, Dr. McCall, Sr., performed over 30,000 surgeries, curing tens of thousands of patients suffering from skin cancer.  Dr. Timothy Brown has assumed the lead as the Program Director for our fellowship in Micrographic Surgery and Dermatologic Oncology and was recently joined by Dr. Michael W. McCall, Jr.
It’s easy to see why Associates in Dermatology is the premier dermatology practice preferred by patients across Kentucky and Southern Indiana.   You will not find a team of physicians and medical professionals better trained and more committed to their patients than those at Associates in Dermatology.  A local practice, owned and operated by physicians who have an incessant desire to better the lives of their patients.
