A caring approach at Dermatology Associates

Dr. Anne McBride, of Dermatology Associates,
specializes in both adult and child dermatology.
One of the first things almost everyone does when moving to Florida is make an appointment with a dermatologist. Even those of us who have worshipped the sun since childhood recognize that the Florida sun needs to be respected, habits formed long ago changed and medical advice sought.
Dr. Anne McBride with Dermatology Associates in Bradenton is a board certified dermatologist specializing in both general adult and child dermatology, as well as offering cosmetic dermatology treatments. Since she opened her Bradenton office in January she has been caring for patients with skin cancers, performing dermatologic surgeries and working closely with an oncology group located in the same facility.
McBride, originally from West Virginia, was persuaded to relocate her practice from Pittsburg, Pa., by family members living in Sarasota, including an older brother who is a physician specializing in family practice in Sarasota. Initially, she worked with Dr. Monica Bendi out of Dermatology Associates’ office on Bee Ridge Road in Sarasota and she still maintains an affiliation in the Sarasota office.
But McBride’s story doesn’t stop there. Her first career after graduating from college was as a chemical engineer. After a few years, she realized she didn’t have the passion for a career in engineering. She enrolled in medical school at the University of West Virginia, ultimately completing her residency at the University of Pittsburg. Her life has gotten even more interesting and satisfying recently after adopting two little girls, ages five and six from Nepal and China.
McBride is community oriented and attempts to provide both old and new patients with appointments as quickly as possible and is always accepting new patients. Dermatology Associates accepts Medicare and most other insurances, because as Dr. McBride says, it’s hard and unfair not to take insurance.
So keep the sunshine in your sunny Florida lifestyle by having your skin regularly examined by a qualified dermatologist. McBride at Dermatology Associates combines expertise with a warm and caring approach resulting in your peace of mind.
