DALLAS, Texas – December 5, 2023 — Platinum Dermatology Partners (“Platinum”) announces a new market expansion through its partnership with Skin & Cancer Associates of Florida (“SCA”).

We believe this partnership with Platinum will allow us to better care for the South Florida community through access to new shared resources and broader collaboration,” said SCA CEO Reuven Porges. 


“This merger is another step forward in fulfilling our vision of building out the most differentiated organization in our specialty as we continue to partner with those equally passionate about delivering the most exceptional level of patient care,” said Dr. Tony Petelin, President of Platinum.
