Epiphany Dermatology (www.epiphanydermatology.com) announced today it has expanded its presence in the state of Oklahoma through its acquisition of Dermatology Associates of Oklahoma, LLC (“DAO”). Epiphany Dermatology is comprised of leading dermatologists committed to improving access to great dermatologic care and now operates four locations in Oklahoma, in addition to 18 locations in New Mexico and Texas.
DAO has a solid track record of providing quality dermatology services to patients at its three centers located in Oklahoma City, Tulsa, and Muskogee. Through this acquisition, DAO’s dedicated providers and support staff have joined Epiphany in a partnership grounded in exceptional patient care.
Dr. Raymond Cornelison, a board-certified dermatologist who served as past President of the American Academy of Dermatology as well as Chair of the Department of Dermatology at the University of Oklahoma, commented, “My staff and I are excited to form a partnership with Epiphany, which has proven itself to be a high-quality company comprised of dedicated professionals who are easy to work with. Epiphany shares our values and goal of providing high-quality and compassionate care across the entire spectrum of dermatologic needs. Through our partnership with Epiphany, we will expand our ability to effectively and expeditiously treat the thousands of skin cancers we are faced with annually. Epiphany has the infrastructure to help us manage the growing administrative burdens so we can focus on what matters most—taking care of our patients and serving our community.”
Gheorghe Pusta, Chief Executive Officer of Epiphany, said, “We are pleased and honored to form this partnership with Dr. Cornelison and the caring staff at DAO. Dr. Cornelison is a national leader in the dermatology specialty, having distinguished himself in both academia and private practice. He and his colleagues are committed to clinical excellence, just the same as Epiphany. As such, this is an exciting opportunity to expand our provider network and improve access to great dermatologic care across the state of Oklahoma.”
Through this partnership, DAO’s providers and staff gain additional resources to help with operations, managed care, marketing, human resources, compliance, recruiting, and areas of additional support services.
