Listen on your favorite platform

In this episode Dr. Peter Lio, a Clinical Assistant Professor of Dermatology & Pediatrics at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, a Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, and a Diplomate of the American Board of Dermatology (board-certified in Dermatology), joins our host, Dr. Joshua Honaker.

Dr. Lio shares his experience in the world of dermatology from how his career started to how dermatology practices are changing today. One of the biggest changes is a new openness to being more holistic within the dermatology practice and realizing that a cream is not always the solution but instead focusing on the underlying reason.

To Dr. Lio, an integrative approach to medicine means taking the best from different traditions and bringing them together in a cohesive plan for a patient.

The conversation also touches on how things such as atopic dermatitis, eczema, are affected by things such as diet and stress. The doctors recognize the importance of doctor-patient relationships because although you provide them with a plan, a way forward, it is up to the patient to follow through. Dermatology is ever changing as we learn more and more.
