Pine Belt Dermatology & Skin Cancer Center, located in Petal, Hattiesburg, Ellisville, and Biloxi, MS, began as a vision that every patient who walked through their doors should receive personalized and quality care. This vision quickly turned into the mantra of the staff and became ingrained in their moral fiber. Pine Belt Dermatology & Skin Cancer Center got their start at Stone County Hospital in the city of Wiggins, MS in September of 2014.
The Petal location, which is now their main office, opened in November of that year. Petal was the ideal location for the practice because it was a growing community that provided an opportunity for PBD to grow with it. It wasn’t long after that PBD grew beyond Forrest County. They started out with one provider, Dr. David Roy, and a humble five-member staff. Since then Pine Belt Dermatology & Skin Cancer Center has grown tremendously.
By February of 2016, PBD had added another location and two more providers- an office in Hattiesburg and the new providers were Dr. Rebecca Duff and Lauren Aycock, FNP-BC. By November of 2016, they added another provider, Dr. Eugene Conte, to their ranks. While it is still early in the year of 2017, they are not pumping the breaks on growing just yet. In April of 2017 they will add another provider, Kristen Richardson, PA-C. Additionally, they have recently opened another clinic in Collins, MS and are currently working on opening a clinic in Ellisville, MS.
They want to thank the communities in which they operate in and each individual patient that has walked through their doors since they first opened in 2014. They have enjoyed serving you and will continue to strive to provide the best care they have to offer to all those in need.
