Dr. Tim Ioannides is a Florida-based dermatologist. 15 years ago he founded Treasure Coast Dermatology in Port St. Lucie. He now has multiple locations through which he provides medical dermatological services. He is a graduate of the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine.

Not long after graduating he became a voluntary associate professor at his alma mater. For the past 20 years, he has taught students who are studying to become dermatologists. His first job in the medical field was at a physician’s office that focused on cosmetic dermatology. He discovered that he was passionate about the medical side of dermatology rather than the cosmetic side.

Over the past two decades, Dr. Tim Ioannides has helped patients with a variety of skin issues. That has included skin cancers, tumors, and skin disorders like psoriasis, acne, rosacea, and eczema. He works to promote overall skin health. He says that if issues are caught early they are much more treatable so he takes a proactive approach with his patients.

When he first started Treasure Coast Dermatology, Dr. Tim Ioannides performed cosmetic procedures in addition to medically-based procedures. He said that he needed to do so in order to pay the bills. His eventual goal was to not do any cosmetic procedures. He wanted medical dermatology to be the heart and soul of his company.

He was eventually able to solely rely on medical practice and hasn’t done cosmetic dermatology in a number of years. He likes specializing in medical procedures because it benefits the lives of his patients. Most of his workday is taken up seeing patients, performing research, and talking with his staff members about what his patients need. He sees every patient himself. He has the same staff at each of his locations so that operations are efficient and benefit his patients.
