For board-certified dermatologist Dr. Scott Karempelis, the life-changing possibility of taking care of a patient’s skin problem, whether it’s cancer or cosmetic, is inspiring. In the nearly 30 years that Dr. Karempelis, affectionately known as Dr. K., has been a founding partner of Dermatology Associates of Atlanta (DAA), he’s taken on many roles within the practice. He values being an important piece of a cutting edge practice that prioritizes the latest technology, which he takes an active role in learning about and implementing.
Known for his friendly, witty, and knowledgeable demeanor, Dr. Karempelis serves as the Medical Director of DAA’s Laser Institute of Georgia, which offers 18 medical lasers. The vast selection of lasers available in this center treat anything from skin cancers, pre-cancers, acne, and rosacea, to removing unwanted hair, veins, brown spots, tattoos, scarring and wrinkles. With Dr. Karempelis’ expertise, he helps to educate patients on the best ways to get the most out of their laser treatments.
While Dr. Karempelis has earned a dependable reputation as a top dermatologist in the use of medical lasers, DAA holds seven other specialty centers that offer hair transplants, facial rejuvenation with injections, skin cancer/MOHS surgery, esthetician services, psoriasis treatment, liposuction and more. Additionally, Dr. Karempelis is an expert in facial injectables and SlimLipo™. The possession of these specialty centers, the proper lasers, treatments, and products combined with a talented team of providers improves the capacity to diagnose and treat skin problems. When Dr. Karempelis chose the medical career path, one of his main goals was to be able to identify the immeasurable number of ailments and concerns associated with each individual skin type and treat them effectively. With his interaction with so many wonderful patients at DAA, this can be fully achieved.
In addition to being a valued provider at DAA, Dr. Karempelis enjoys waterskiing, snowskiing, and UGA football. We look forward to introducing you to DAA’s providers in the coming months to provide further insight into their essential roles.
