("U.S. Dermatology"), a nationwide provider of healthcare services for skin cancer treatment and other medical dermatological conditions.

Headquartered in Irvine, CA, U.S. Dermatology was founded by current CEO Ed Rotan for the purpose of acquiring medical (non-cosmetic) dermatology practices throughout the U.S. and increasing revenues at these practices by introducing additional specialized medical services.

"We're equally excited to partner with Ed Rotan to build a nationwide platform that can help address the critical and growing need for skin cancer treatment," said Alain Rothstein, Principal of Vicente Capital Partners.
