Douglas has an extensive and diverse background in healthcare. After graduating from New York City’s prestigious Fordham University he worked in New York University Medical Center Department of Dermatology. It was here in the heart of Manhattan that he worked closely with renowned Dermatologic physicians and developed a passion for helping those afflicted with skin disorders.

Having goals makes anything possible. And Douglas has done that from the start. Accepted into Graduate school in West Virginia he completed his postgraduate studies as a Physician Assistant. Earning two degrees in three years he excelled in all of his coursework.

Having a history seeing trauma in the Bronx as a medic it was easy to see why he spent the next decade practicing Emergency Medicine. In Florida hospitals he compassionately cared for the critically ill for the next decade. Now moonlighting in the Emergency Room he has strong ties with the medical and social communities and continues his ambitious career in Dermatology.

Fellowship trained at Advanced Dermatology of Orlando he now returns to Polk county so he can practice where he has resided for the past 15 years.

Douglas is Nationally Certified and a Fellow of the Florida Academy of Physician Assistants, and the Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants, and the Florida Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants.

While he has a passion for skin cancer surgery, he thrives off of a diverse schedule ranging from advanced cosmetic injectable procedures to complicated medical dermatology. He has incorporated many of his passions within this field. In addition to his clinical practice, Douglas is also a licensed Medical Examiner with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and former Veterans Administration Disability Medical Examiner. He has presented complicated Medical cases at Advanced Dermatology’s Grand Rounds and taught medicine to many Physician Assistant students. We are proud to now have Douglas Re join our group at Advanced Dermatology's where he gives compassionate Care to our community.
