PHOENIX — U.S. Dermatology Partners (“USDP”), formerly known as Dermatology Associates, is pleased to announce that it has expanded further in the state of Arizona by partnering with North Valley Dermatology in Peoria (a major suburb of Phoenix). U.S. Dermatology Partners is a physician-owned, dermatology-focused practice management organization.
North Valley Dermatology was founded in 1986 by Dr. Mary Fredenberg and offers a full suite of dermatological treatments including general, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology, as wells as Mohs micrographic surgery. North Valley Dermatology has a team of four board-certified physicians and four physician assistants on staff. Adjacent to the North Valley Dermatology medical office is their spa, Original Skin, which offers an array of aesthetic services to complement its full suite of medical dermatology offerings.
Dr. Mary Fredenberg began her dermatology practice after completing her residency in 1986. She holds a B.S. in Microbiology from Arizona State University, and attended medical school at the University of Arizona. She completed her Internal Medicine internship with Good Samaritan Medical Center in Phoenix, AZ in 1983 and her Dermatology residency at Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke’s Medical Center in Chicago, IL in 1986. Dr. Fredenberg has been board-certified by the American Board of Dermatology since 1986.
