Our Story

Dermatology Clinic was established in the city of Muncie, Indiana in 1977 by Dr. Bartholome. It was one of the first dermatology clinics to establish itself in Muncie. Dr. Bartholomes great knowledge and experience in dermatology allowed practice to quickly gain popularity. In the 80’s and 90’s Dermatology Clinic establish a great patient base that was taking care of generations of families.

With the great success and impressive demand for patients Dr. Barthololme decided to take on a partner to help the expansion and soon after that Dermatology Clinic opened satellite locations. From Muncie to Marion, Wabash to Hartford City and Peru our practice took the knowledge and experience on the road to help people with their skin conditions.

The new century brought multiple advancements in medical treatments and aesthetical services. The hard work, continuous education and patient appreciation allowed the practice to excel in the medical dermatology field.

In 2015 D.r Batholomes exceptional partner retired and then Dermatology Clinic recruited a Physician Assistant Gennady Chernyak. His impressive education and outstanding fifteen years of experience in Dermatology was a great choice to fill the void. Dr Bartholome and Gennady Chernyak partnered their effort in continuing the very best traditions that were established many years ago.

Our aesthetics department grew with new acquisitions of Laser for hair removal and skin tightening technology. Our aesthetician is able to help many patients with advances in microneedling procedures for scar treatments and rejuvenation. Chemical peels and acne facials help our patients to retain youthful look and help with complexion. In addition to the aesthetician, the practice adopted two incredible skin care lines – Epionce and Alastin skin care.

Dermatology Clinic went through many positive changes in the last three years. Our practice expanded dermatological care to Carmel and Terre Haute areas. We continue to provide dermatology services in Marion and our main office in Muncie.

We established a partnership with our Carmel location counterpart and exceptional physician who is focusing her medical experience on aesthetics and hormone replacement therapy. The concept of mature body and aging skin is tremendously affected by changes of our hormone/endocrine system. It is a well thought alliance to help our patients with some of the complex skin disorders affected by hormone abnormalities.

Dermatology Clinic found a great benefit for our patients in partnership with our new Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Porto. Based out of Carmel he provides us with his exceptional experience and great knowledge on a monthly basis. Dr. Porto helps the practice to have a comprehensive surgical service for many patients that do not want to travel to Indianapolis for surgeries.

We currently strive for perfection in exceptional patient care, experience and education. With same day appointments in our main Muncie location to facilitate prompt care for the more serious skin infections and issues that can pop up at any time. Here at DCM Skin Solutions and MedSpa we take the time listen to our patients, always put their needs first and treat our patients like family.
