LA PORTE- Pinnacle Dermatology recently held a ribbon cutting and celebration of the opening of its new La Porte location at 307 West Johnson Road, Suite C. The event was administered by the Greater La Porte Chamber of Commerce.

Dr. Jose Rios, President and Co-Founder of Pinnacle Dermatology, stated “We are excited to be in La Porte after having gradually expanded from Illinois. La Porte represents our second Indiana location. We are also fortunate to have Lauren Howe as our Physician Assistant in La Porte because she has helped to cement our plan here.”

Lauren Howe continued “We are offering the community another dermatology option. At our location, we are often able to get patients in the next day, and we are also able to offer the Mohs Micrographic procedure which is not always available nearby.”

When it comes to your appearance and the health of your skin, insist on excellence. Pinnacle Dermatology provides the highest level of skin care delivered with a familiar, down-to-earth approach. Established in 2004 under the solid partnership of board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jose Rios and board certified dermatologist and trained Mohs Surgeon, Dr. Paula Lapinski, Pinnacle has grown into a multi-state practice with immediate future plans for expansion.
