“Dedicated to EXCELLENCE in all aspects of Dermatology medical surgical care…”

Dermatology Specialists San Diego


Do you ever wonder what happened to the days of the old fashioned family doctor, who treated all your family’s problems from head to toe, who made house calls, who carried all his instruments in a little black bag? As nostalgic as that sounds, we have something even better to offer our patients. 

House calls may be a thing of the past, but at our office we see you at your convenience, even the same day you call for your appointment. We don’t want you to suffer needlessly when we can usually offer a treatment the same day. How can we do this when other medical offices can’t?

Our medical director, Dr. John F. Shega, is a board certified Dermatologist in San Diego and an emergency medical physician. This background permits us to see you on a same day basis much like an emergency room. This offers peace of mind that when you have a skin condition you can be seen promptly by Dr. Shega who remains up to date in all fields of medicine, beyond the realm of dermatology.

With Academic & Aesthetic Dermatology Consultants, you’re making the right choice for your skin care needs since only a board certified dermatologist has medical and surgical training in skin, hair, and nails. Other specialists, including family practice, plastic surgery, and internal medicine, receive minimal or no dermatology training.

Our practice philosophy is to provide the highest quality of skin care while making you feel at home. We look forward to serving you. Call (858) 292-7525 for more information or same-day appointment or book online, if you need to schedule an appointment out. 

We offer a wide range of treatments and skin care services including:
