Tampa, FL — March 31, 2017 — Riverchase Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery is proud to announce the acquisition of Tampa Palms Dermatology. The office located at 15310 Amberly Drive Suite 150 in Tampa, FL will offer the same quality dermatology services patients have come to know and trust from Riverchase Dermatology.

Tampa Palms Dermatology was founded 30 years ago by Dr. Ruth Hanno M.D, who has practiced in the Tampa Palms community since inception. “Dr. Hanno has built an incredible practice, and along with Kimberly Siders PA-C, they have established an excellent reputation in the community. With this acquisition, I am pleased to give Dr. Hanno the opportunity to fulfill her passion and ultimately shift her focus exclusively to dermatopathology and we are thrilled to welcome the experienced Kimberly Siders, PA-C to our team,” says Andrew T. Jaffe, MD, FAAD, Founder, CEO and Chief Medical Officer of Riverchase Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery. Kimberly Siders PA-C will join the Riverchase team and continue to provide services full time at the Tampa Palms location. Riverchase will also be welcoming Milan Lombardi M.D. and Salma Pothiawala M.D to the Tampa Palms team of practitioners.

While Ruth Hanno will be retiring from the practice of general dermatology to focus on dermatopathology, Dr. Hanno states, “As the quality option in dermatology, Riverchase Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery’s philosophies and commitment to patient care make this transition a viable and sound decision for the best interests of the practice. It was of critical importance to me that Tampa Palms Dermatology aligned with the right group of practitioners and professionals, and I am pleased with the ultimate outcome and our experience with Riverchase to date. I am transitioning with confidence over to a Riverchase team that I trust will assure the highest level of quality for the Tampa Palms patients and the community in general.”

As part of their dedication to providing quality patient care to the Central and Southwest Florida areas, Riverchase Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery continues to expand their service area to reach a greater number of those in need of dermatology services at convenient locations. With the addition of this new office, Riverchase now offers a total of 27 dermatology and cosmetic surgery locations and a team of over 50 skilled practitioners throughout Florida.

“We are excited to expand our presence in the Tampa market and provide increased access for medical dermatology, cosmetic dermatology, and surgical dermatology services to the Tampa Palms community. The combination of Tampa Palms Dermatology’s long standing reputation in the community and RCD’s unwavering commitment to quality clinical care will provide an excellent service to the area,” states Andrew T.
