Medical Dermatology

Human skin is amazing.  It’s the body’s largest organ.  It is exposed to the outside world and protects the rest of your body from the elements.  Everyone experiences an ailment affecting their skin at some time in their life and we’ve listed the most common ones below.

Skin conditions can range from serious melanomas to uncomfortable rashes to harmless, but noticeable, age spots. Each can be treated but the earlier you get help, the easier it will be to remedy.

Medical Dermatology Comments From Our Patients

If is was not for Dr Monica Scheel Dermatology Office, I would still not know that I had Melanoma on my leg. The spot was so small that I had not noticed it, and was discovered when I had my full body cancer screen check at Monica’s Office, with their professional and caring dedication to the customers.

Mom and I wanted to say MAHALO for all you did for us today!!!

When I called this morning to make an appointment for Mom, I was thrilled when Danielle said there was an opening at 11:45am. We felt a sense of relief since she has been in pain for a while. It was comforting to know there is no pressure sore or something skin related going on.

Your immediate glance to my arm was heartwarming. You cared so much to interrupt Mom’s appointment to look at my lesion. Taking the time to do the biopsy and explaining the next steps was the absolute best. It made me stop worrying about the unknown and know I’m taking steps in the right direction with your guidance.

Patient Care Coordinator Gia was also helpful and kind to both of us today – MAHALO Gia!!!

Dr. Scheel – your warm and friendly manner, combined with your professional expertise is such a gift. You exude genuine caring, confidence and competence. We feel so fortunate you are here in Kona.

THANK YOU so much for everything you did for us today !!!

While Melasma can be an extremely difficult skin condition to treat and can reoccur at any time – one that I may have to battle with for the rest of my life – I now feel that I have learned enough from Dr. Scheel to not let it get out of control as I allowed it to before.

Thank you Dr. Monica Scheel for taking the time to care and making me feel beautiful again from the inside-out. And thank you for helping me to believe that there is hope for Melasma.

After several years of suffering with a skin condition on my hands, fingers and back, I went to a dermatologist (not Dr. Scheel) about 4 years ago. That doctor spent 5 minutes in the room with me, said it was psoriasis and nothing could be done about it.

I had heard of Dr. Scheel so decide to try a different dermatologist. My 1st exam was 45 minutes, at which time Dr. Scheel checked all of my skin and asked questions about my health and life style, stress level. She suggested doing a test to see if I had allergy or intolerance to 30 different foods, because that can be a cause. After the test results came back, we met again and was told that 5 foods (refined sugar, cows milk, wheat, eggs and oats) were at high levels in my body and that they all can cause inflammation (which psoriasis is).

Within the 1st 2 weeks of my new diet, I noticed that my psoriasis was diminishing and by the 5-month mark, it was virtually gone. Hooray!
