Dermatologists address diseases of the skin, scalp, hair and nails. While some of our work is cosmetic, our medical dermatology practice is also focused on improving the health of our patients.
The skin is the largest organ of the human body. Healthy skin is a critical component of healthy living. Our providers serve patients of all ages experiencing a wide array of skin-related conditions from the simple to the complex.
In addition to new medical therapies, we also value holistic options. We try to treat the whole person, not just with traditional methods, but with others using all aspects of health. We can assist those wishing to make lifestyle changes by providing suggestions that help improve skin conditions with raw supplements and organic product.
What Our Patients Say
Wonderful team! I had basal cell carcinoma removed from the bridge of my nose and, as you can imagine, was concerned about all the cancer being removed but also about it being right in the center of my face. Dr. James Tidwell did an excellent job! He was able to remove all the basal cell and did minimal scarring to my nose. It’s been two weeks today and I can easily say that by the time it completely heals the scar will barely be noticeable. Amazing. Thank you Dr. Halden Ford and Dr. James Tidwell, for a job well done. Dr. Tidwell, thank you for your kindness and understanding. I would recommend you to anyone.
"My boyfriend was treated for a skin cancer. We knew exactly what to expect on the day of the procedure. What we didn't know was how courteous and caring the staff would be. We were impressed with Dr. Tidwell as well. He was compassionate, personable, knowledgeable, and completely put my boyfriend at ease during the procedure."
"Dr. Tidwell was great and very efficient . He took his time and explained what was going to take place. I would highly recommend his services. His assistants were very caring also."
"Dr. Tidwell and staff are fantastic! Informative, quick, easy, painless appointments for a small skin cancer. Paducah should be proud to have a great dermatologist like Dr. Tidwell. I trust him so much that I sent my daughter to see him. "
"Through removal of a cancerous lesion and a skin graft on my 91 year old mother, Dr. Tidwell was impressive. He and his staff were caring, compassionate, and considerate on the day of the surgery as well as all of the follow-up visits."
"When Dr. William James Tidwell walked into the examining room, it was obvious within just a couple of minutes that he was truly interested in my concerns and eager to do the best job possible to take care of me. He was professional and personable and put me very much at ease as a patient. At age 62 and an avid fan of the outdoors, I have had more than a handful of experiences with dermatologists and plastic surgeons over the years. I will definitely go back to Paducah Dermatology for checkups or any other skin care needs -- which by the way, I learned that Dr. Tidwell also does some 'age-reversing' procedures!"
