Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS YOUR ‘NO SHOW’ POLICY?
Because our doctors value their time with patients, Front Range Dermatology Associates has a no show policy. You will be charged a $75 fee for any missed appointment where we have not been given 24-hour notice. Please be on time to your appointment as our doctors run a very tight schedule. Patients who miss more than three appointments may be subject to dismissal from the practice.
WHAT IS A DERMATOLOGIST?
Dr. Hoover, Dr. Wilde and Dr. Stearns are Board-Certified Dermatologists. In addition, Dr. Hoover and Dr. Stearns have completed a program in Dermatopathology and are pleased to be two of a handful of physicians to be Double Board-Certified in Dermatology and Dermatopathology.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A DERMATOLOGIST AND A DERMATOPATHOLOGIST?
Dr. Hoover and Dr. Stearns are Dual Board-Certified in both Dermatology and Dermatopathology. This is an advantage to our patients because they get a quicker and more personal response rather than waiting weeks for test results from a hospital lab.
WHEN SHOULD I SEE A DERMATOLOGIST?
In Colorado, we are at a higher than average risk for skin cancer. If anything on your skin is growing, changing shape or bleeding, you should see a dermatologist right away. Skin cancer has a high rate of cure if it is caught and treated early.

HOW DO I SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT?
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AT MY FIRST APPOINTMENT?
Please plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment. We respectfully request that you turn off cell phones in the examination room.
At your visit with a Front Range Dermatology provider, you should expect to feel comfortable as they examine you and address your concerns. After the exam, we hope to provide a diagnosis and discuss treatment options with you. Our philosophy is to involve our patients in the treatment process and we encourage you to ask questions.
We accept cash, checks, or credit cards. If you need assistance with paying for a treatment, please talk to us before the treatment begins and we will try to work out a financial plan with you. It is our hope and goal that you will leave our office feeling well cared-for by our staff.
