SEACOAST NH - Seacoast Dermatology PLLC announces Maria Petkova NP-C, as the newest team member of the growing dermatology practice.
Board certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners as a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP), Petkova is working closely with doctors at Seacoast Dermatology to diagnose and prescribe treatment for a variety of skin conditions. Her special areas of focus include skin cancer detection, and the diagnosis and treatment for women’s skin-related health issues including adult acne, GYN dermatology, hair loss, anti-aging and nutrition.
Petkova joins Seacoast Dermatology from the well known Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. She states “I chose to join Seacoast Dermatology because providing the best patient care possible is important to me and I sensed right away that everyone here is committed to that too. Working closely with Dr. Dinulos and the other experienced providers allows me to use all of my skills as a dermatology provider. The Practice is growing, and it’s an exciting time to be on the New Hampshire Seacoast.”
Completing her Bachelor of Science (BS) in Nutrition and Dietetics, and Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) at Simmons College in Boston, Petkova was graduated with Summa Cum Laude
honors with an emphasis on Family Medicine and OB/GYN. At the Harvard School of Public Health, she focused on Women’s Health Research studies. She also assisted in the development and management of cutaneous oncology clinical trials while at the Novartis Institute for Biomedical Research in Boston. “My background in nutrition and clinical research taught me to think more holistically about medicine and skin health. This approach allows for more effective treatment when helping a broad range of patients” said Patkova. Maria is an active member of the Dermatology Nurses Association (DNA) and the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP).
Seacoast Dermatology’s board-certified providers offer a full range of general and dermatologic surgery services including cosmetics and Mohs surgery for skin cancer. Petkova is accepting new patients and the Practice has expanded hours to accommodate the area’s growing need for dermatologic services. Practice locations include Portsmouth, Dover, Exeter and Newmarket, NH, serving patients from NH, ME and MA.
