MRHC Now Offering Dermatology Services

Manning Regional Healthcare Center is excited to announce that dermatology services are now being offered in Manning.

Many people experience uncomfortable skin conditions such as acne, hives, psoriasis, rashes, warts, eczema, or even skin cancer.  Seeing a dermatology provider regularly can help ensure healthy skin, resolve skin disorders such as acne or eczema and even detect skin cancer early.

Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner, Abby Behrens, MSN, ARNP, FNP-C, will be in Manning on the first Wednesday of every month to offer medical and cosmetic dermatology services that address skin disorders, acne and acne scaring, eczema, skin cancer screenings, rashes, signs of aging and wrinkles, and even excess sweating.  Behrens reminds patients that, “While preventive measures should be taken to protect your skin from the sun, you should also perform routine checks of your skin and keep an eye on any irregular moles or freckles.”

Linn Block, RN, BSN, MHA, Manning Regional’s CEO is excited to have dermatology services available once again to the community. “It can often be difficult to recruit specialty providers to come to rural Iowa, so we are grateful to have Abby join our team,” said Block. “We are very excited that we are able to continue expanding our service offerings and are now able to offer dermatology services right here in Manning.”

To schedule an appointment with Abby for your medical and skincare needs, call Manning Regional Healthcare Center at (712) 655-8112.
