Dr. Michael Steppie Associates in Dermatology

> Dr. Michael Steppie is a board-certified physician who has completed residencies in internal medicine, dermatology and dermatologic surgery. He is also a Mohs micrographic skin cancer surgeon and the president and medical director of Associates in Dermatology: “Your Skin Cancer and Skin Care Specialists,” a practice that has grown to 10 locations in Central Florida. This award-winning and compassionate doctor is a dedicated member of the prestigious Amonette Circle of the Skin Cancer Foundation. Last May 2012, Dr. Steppie was profiled in our Wow Factor section that recognizes dynamic and prominent individuals that make a positive impact within our community. His main focus for years has been actively assisting in skin cancer prevention, as skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States, with more than 3.5 million cases diagnosed annually. Besides being the sponsor of the UV Index for two consecutive years on local television weather forecasts and being a favorite interviewee on local news on topics involving skin cancer, he also frequently participates in outreach programs, including the Healthy Skin Tour from the Skin Cancer Foundation.

His dedication reached a much wider audience in the first half of 2012 when he became the featured skin cancer expert at WebMD and when his article “Skin Cancer and the Gender Gap,” was published in the Skin Cancer Foundation Journal. Since our last interview, Dr. Steppie accepted the “Physician of the Year” Award in June 2012 and was also the expert of reference quoted in an article published in Men’s Health Magazine last November 2012.



He was also the first practice in Central Florida to introduce a cutting-edge technology - Superficial Radiation Therapy - which provides an alternative to surgical procedures for specific types of skin cancers. Dr. Steppie’s practice, Associates in Dermatology, has a staff of deeply committed board-certified doctors, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and even a paramedical clinical esthetician. In addition to excisions of skin cancers, moles and skin lesions, the practice offers a number of general dermatological therapies. Also available are Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and Fractional Ablative Laser treatments, ® but also chemical peels, Botox and fillers. Delivering results has always been Dr. Steppie’s main focus; the same passion he puts into his daily practice goes into his Steppie MD Dermaceuticals and his Anti-Aging Cellular Elixir : Ethereal Beauty™. (Introductory Price: $100 and free skin care consultation for Style Magazine Readers.) Dr. Steppie’s patent-pending Pro Organic complex™ is a groundbreaking innovation in skin care which remarkably defies gravity and all visible signs of skin aging.

Just as his patients trust his expertise for their skin cancer, they can trust Steppie MD Dermaceuticals in the same way.
