TOMS RIVER, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DermOne is pleased to announce that on December 31, 2012, it closed on the acquisition of Atlantic Dermatology of Wilmington, NC. This is DermOne's second major acquisition this year. Atlantic was founded by Dr. Jonathan Crane, who will continue to lead the practice in Wilmington but will also join the DermOne leadership team to head up the DermOne expansion in North Carolina.
Atlantic Dermatology (www.atlanticdermatology.com) specializes in Cosmetic, Laser, Medical and Surgical Dermatology. It was established in 1994 to provide top quality skin health care and to become the gold standard of dermatology in Eastern (coastal) North Carolina. Atlantic was founded by Dr. Jonathan Crane. Over the ensuing years, Dr. Crane was joined by Dr. Ronald Benjamin, a board certified dermatologist. Drs. Crane and Benjamin are assisted by five established physician assistants including Patricia Hood, PA-C, Kelly Britt, PA-C, Charlene Farthing, PA-C, Andrea Villareal, PA-C and Kate Jackson, PA-C. Atlantic is known for not only providing the most advanced medical and surgical dermatology treatment but also the most recent and innovative medical advances in cosmetics including Laser Hair Removal, Vascular Laser, Collagen Laser Rejuvenation, Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasions, BOTOX therapy, Juvederm, Restylane fillers and CoolSculpting.
Of the acquisition of Atlantic Dermatology by DermOne, Dr. Crane said, "It's always been my goal to use what we've developed at Atlantic Dermatology as a launching pad to provide services beyond Wilmington. When I met the DermOne team, I realized that I could do just that in partnership with like-minded professionals who are interested in changing the way dermatology services are provided. It's our goal to be part of a national dermatology practice that combines the best business principles and a deep commitment to excellence with the idea that patients should be the center of our universe. I'm excited about the future and our next steps. I'm very pleased to be an early member of a fast-growing national practice."
Dr. Ron Geraty, CEO of DermOne, currently based in Toms River, NJ, expressed his excitement similarly. "When I met Dr. Crane, I knew we had found a kindred spirit. Jonathan is a highly regarded dermatologist who shares our vision of building a national company committed to providing quality treatment available to everyone. The two companies are very complementary; DermOne's infrastructure will allow Atlantic to accelerate its growth in North Carolina and Atlantic's leadership in cosmetics will accelerate this effort at DermOne. With the acquisition of Atlantic, we are launching our efforts to grow beyond our core markets in New Jersey and Pennsylvania and see this as the first of many steps toward becoming a national company. We're lucky to have found Atlantic and to have them join us at this critical stage in our development."
