We’re excited to announce that Ron Berne, MD and his team at A & G Dermatology Associates are now part of the Dermatology + Aesthetics team. As such, they have changed their name and branding to Dermatology + Aesthetics.

“It’s great to be a part of D+A and VitalSkin Dermatology,” Dr. Berne said. “Both are committed to supporting our practice and growth goals with financial flexibility, stability and the means to offer long-term partnership.”

Dr. Berne, a native Chicagoan, is board-certified by the American Board of Dermatology and has been in private practice since 1994. He received his formal dermatology training at Cook County Hospital in Chicago and completed his internal medicine internship at Rush University Hospital. He earned his medical degree from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, as well as his master’s and bachelor’s degrees from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. At his practice in Chicago, Dr. Berne provides world-class medical and cosmetic dermatology services to help them maintain beautiful, healthy skin.

Founded in 2007 by Drs. Keren and Meyer Horn and Dr. Neha Robinson, Dermatology + Aesthetics provides world-class medical, surgical and cosmetic skin care to the Chicago area. Their team is focused on creating the best patient experiences possible through quality care, cutting-edge technology and personalized service.

“From all of us at D+A, welcome to Dr. Berne and his team,” said Dr. Keren Horn. “With their support and commitment to care, we can help even more patients in the Chicago area get the medical and cosmetic skin care they need and want.”

Established in 2019, VitalSkin was designed with dermatologists at the center – aligning with their goals, supporting their needs and creating personalized plans to help them develop their practice and provide exceptional patient care. VitalSkin is led by Todd Petersen, chief executive officer, Dan Wiens, chief financial officer, Jeremy Youse, MD, chief medical officer, and a full leadership team. The entire leadership team is experienced and well-versed in leading physician practice management organizations. With its flexibility and permanent capital, VitalSkin can focus on building stable, long-term partnerships with dermatologists nationwide.

The addition of Dr. Berne and his team marks another point in D+A’s and VitalSkin’s growth. For more information on affiliation opportunities with VitalSkin, click here.
