Dr. Jay Wofford | Dallas Dermatologist

I’m Jay Wofford, I’m a dermatologist and
dermatopathologist practicing in the Dallas area. I initially went into dermatology due to
an experience I had with a mentor from the town I grew up in in Lubbock he was
a dermatologist there and a close family friend and when I was younger I spent
time shadowing him and watching him at his job and the impression I got from
the work he did and the impact it had on his patients as well as the impression
of just how much he enjoyed doing what he does left this kind of memorable
impact on me and that impression stayed with me as I grew up and went through
education and just kind of cemented my decision to go into dermatology. Probably the most rewarding thing for me
in practicing dermatology is treating patients with psoriasis or atopic
dermatitis eczema and severe conditions like that these are conditions that are
much more prevalent than most people realize in the general population and
they have a significant impact on people’s quality of life they can be at
times very miserable conditions for people to live with and a lot of times
they kind of live under the impression that their condition can’t get much
better and sometimes seeing those patients and introducing them to some of
the newer medications available for those conditions can dramatically
improve their lives and even clear their condition completely and that has a huge
impact on them and that’s one of the things I enjoy doing the most. So I initially came to the Dallas area
for my residency training and dermatology at Baylor downtown and
enjoyed living in the Dallas area a lot and so decided to stay and the main
reason I chose to work with U.S. dermatology partners is that they have a
great reputation in the Dallas area and the surrounding community of providing
high quality care for their patients in addition to that they provided me with a
unique opportunity to practice both dermatology and dermatopathology in the
same practice setting which is something I’ve always wanted to do.
