Cooper Clinic Welcomes Drs. Flora Kim and Helen Kaporis to Dermatology Team

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Sep 19, 2013) -  Cooper Clinic announces the addition of two new dermatology physicians to the preventive medicine staff. Dr. Flora Kim, MD, FAAD, and Dr. Helen Kaporis, DO, have joined Cooper Clinic, specializing in Preventive and Cosmetic Dermatology.

"We are pleased to welcome Drs. Kim and Kaporis to the Cooper Clinic team," said Camron Nelson, MD, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cooper Clinic. "At Cooper Clinic we believe that taking care of your health includes taking a full-body approach to prevention, which includes your skin."

Drs. Kim and Kaporis, along with dermatologist Rick Wilson, MD, FASDS, perform comprehensive skin cancer screenings for Cooper Clinic patients who undergo preventive exams. A head-to-toe screening for evidence of skin cancer and other diseases of the skin is one of the components of the Cooper Clinic Standard Six Preventive Exam. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the U.S., and in many cases changes to the skin can signal changes that are occurring in other parts of the body.

Drs. Kim and Kaporis will also offer cosmetic services such as Botox, Dermal and Stimulating Fillers, Laser Treatments and Chemical Peels for the general public. Dr. Wilson offers the same cosmetic dermatology services and is a vein specialist, offering a variety of spider and varicose vein therapies.

Dr. Kim received a Bachelor of Arts from Harvard University and Doctor of Medicine from the University of Virginia School of Medicine. She completed her Internal Medicine Internship at Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas and her dermatology residency at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. She is board certified by the American Board of Dermatology and a Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology. Dr. Kim was most recently a dermatologist at Ann Arbor Dermatology in Ann Arbor, Mich.

A graduate of Fordham University with a Bachelor of Science in Cellular Biology, Kaporis earned her Doctor of Osteopathy degree from New York College of Osteopathic Medicine. She completed a Traditional Rotating Internship at Nassau University Medical Center in New York and her residency at Northeast Regional Medical Center in Kirksville, Mo. She is Board Certified by the American Osteopathic Board of Dermatology and comes to Cooper Clinic from Mansfield Dermatology in Mansfield, Texas.
