Abstract

Scientific advances have altered the nature of primary care medicine. Primary care providers are increasingly asked to care for a broad spectrum of common maladies, including cutaneous disease. We review studies that have compared primary care physicians with dermatologists with respect to the diagnosis and treatment of skin disorders. Though primary care providers play a crucial role in the delivery of health care, the judicious and appropriate use of dermatology consultation should be encouraged.
