SKINHAPPY MD OF MONTEREY, CA, ACHIEVES PRESTIGIOUS PDA ACCREDITATION

SkinHappy MD, a newly established dermatology practice focusing on treating and managing selected medical and cosmetic skin conditions through customized topical “skin diets”, proudly announces its success in becoming one of the first medical practices in the region to achieve the Physicians Dispensing Association (PDA) accreditation. This prestigious accreditation is awarded only to qualified physicians, who have demonstrated the knowledge and skills to consult with an FDA certified lab as they formulate customized prescription medications for direct dispensing within a practice location. The accreditation is awarded in recognition of Dr. Julie Kenner’s commitment to meeting and/or exceeding national quality standards for prescription medication dispensing.

Established in 2014, The Physician Dispensing Association (PDA) is an independent accrediting body whose mission is to promote the quality, safe, and optimal outcomes of compounded prescription medication dispensing directly by physician providers.

Achieving accreditation is a process whereby physicians demonstrate compliance with national standards. PDA accreditation reflects a physician’s dedication and commitment to meeting standards that facilitate a higher level of performance and patient care regarding prescription medications. At this initial accreditation review, Dr. Kenner received the maximum three year certification, a testament to the fact her facility satisfied peer review, and she demonstrated to a team of surveyors her services and programs met the highest quality.

“Knowing which products, and more often, which combination of products, truly impact skin disease and contribute to the health and beauty of skin, is part of the art of practicing dermatology,” says Julie Kenner, MD PhD, founder of SkinHappy MD. “At SkinHappy MD, we are committed to delivering the highest quality compounded medications to the community in which we serve. By providing each patient with an individualized topical ‘skin diet’ comprised of outstanding skin care products – whether cherry picked from existing skin care companies, or explicitly compounded by a certified lab with prescription ingredients – patients receive unrivalled skin care and treatment outcomes. By receiving PDA Accreditation, our patients can be assured that our medical practice is in compliance with the industry’s most stringent national standards regarding physician dispensing and compounding of prescription medications.”

What’s New at the SkinHappyMD Practice:   SkinHappyMD is one of the first medical practices in the region to achieve the Physicians Dispensing Association (PDA) accreditation. By receiving the PDA Accreditation, our patients can be assured that our medical practice is in compliance with the industry’s best national standards regarding physician dispensing and certified lab compounding of prescription medications.
