Lake Region Healthcare offers dermatology services in our Fergus Falls Clinic through our family nurse practitioner (FNP), Mary Connelly Bressler. Mary was the first FNP in the Essentia Health system's dermatology department in Duluth and practiced nine years there. She was trained by five board-certified dermatologists and has attended several national conferences sponsored by the American Academy of Dermatology and the Dermatology Nurses Association.

Her services at Lake Region Healthcare include treatments for acne (including Accutane), rosacea, dermatitis, eczema, drug reactions, fungal and bacterial infections, psoriasis, warts, cyst removals, melanoma checks, alopecia, and keloid therapy. Mary will work closely with patients and their primary care providers and will refer complex cases to a dermatologist as needed.
