Many dermatologists need more training on African American skin and hair

... to have dermatologists who are specialized in the care of people (from other races)," said Dr. Stavonnie Patterson, a dermatologist with Northwest Community Healthcare in Arlington Heights, Illinois, the study's senior author.
While many black patients in the focus groups said they felt more comfortable when their doctor's race matched theirs, Patterson said, "I believe any person can be trained to take care of any other person."
