Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is a Nurse Practitioner
A: A Nurse Practioner of Advanced Nurse Practitioner (APN) is the title given to a person who has earned a Master’s Degree in nursing. Before he/she is accepted into the program, they must complete at least 4 years of nurse training and then be accepted into a limited group of APNs. An APN has the authority to perform biospies, write prescriptions, and offer other treatments with the supervision and training of a physician. At Dr. Yeoman’s Office, we have a wonderful team of APNs who can treat most issues associated with the skin. They help insure that you, the patient, can get an appointment as quickly as possible and they are able to provide the absolute highest quality of care.

Q: What is the best cure for acne?
A: The answer is there is no “cure” for acne. Acne is a medical condition that requires long-term treatment. We recommend you seek medical advice when dealing with acne as it can lead to permanent scarring. Some people have had success with over the counter medications, but the best solution is to schedule an appointment. No two people have the same skin and there is no one-size-fits-all solution. To treat acne, you must attack it at the source.
