Dr. Ellerbroek has been practicing for several years and has performed thousands of surgical cases.  His expertise includes the following:

  • Mohs Micrographic Surgery
    • For the treatment of basal and squamous cell cancer located primarily on the face.  As the only provider performing this in the region, Dr. Ellerbroek is pleased to offer this service to his patients.  Mohs surgery has become the gold standard for the treatment of facial skin cancers due to its exceptionally high cure rate and ability to leave a smaller scar.
  • Skin Cancer Excisions
    • Conventional excisions are typically done on cancers on the body.  This includes the treatment of basal cell cancer, squamous cell cancer, and melanoma.
  • Excision of benign lesions
    • Includes the removal of cysts, moles, and various other lesions.


Our aesthetic offerings are regularly growing, so be sure to check back periodically for new services:

      • Vascular Lesions (eg. small blood vessels, rosacea, flushing, angiomas)

  • INTRAcel Radiofrequency Microneedling
    • We are excited at Premier Dermatology to offer this revolutionary and innovative technology. This device is proven to produce reliable results, reducing the signs of aging, eliminating wrinkles and correcting scarring with little or no downtime. In fact, patients may resume their daily life quickly after treatment compared to other more aggressive treatments or devices. INTRAcel treats these skin conditions by stimulating the production of collagen, the most abundant naturally produced protein in your body. As we age, the body produces less collagen resulting in a loss of elasticity in the skin and evidence of wrinkles and lines. The INTRAcel therefore helps skin look firmer and younger!

      INTRAcel is superior to other RF microneedling systems on the market in outcomes and pain tolerability due to the machine’s patented insulated micro-needles. Treatments are targeted at variable depths below the skin surface, meaning that healthy skin is left undamaged causing minimal pain and discomfort. By combining microneedling to penetrate the skin and radiofrequency to deliver heat energy deep into the skin tissue, the skin responds to the thousands of tiny microscopic energy points by generating new collagen growth. This results in thicker, firmer, and smoother skin. When used on acne scars, the RF energy breaks up the scar tissue and allows for more efficient collagen remodeling.

      INTRAcel treatments can be used on all skin types and are done most commonly on the face and neck, but also can be used anywhere on the body such as the abdomen, inner arms, and anterior thighs to tighten crepey or wrinkled skin or to treat stretch marks for example. A package of 3 is recommended.
