  • Expertise and experience. Mayo Clinic doctors have extensive experience treating children and adults who have psoriasis.
  • Specialized treatment. Mayo offers all treatments for this disease, including one for moderate to severe psoriasis that's not available at many places. The Goeckerman treatment, which was invented at Mayo Clinic, involves daily ultraviolet light exposure and application of coal tar over the whole body.
  • The right diagnosis. Each form of psoriasis has unique characteristics, and their effects on people range from mild to almost totally disabling. Your doctor will work with you to determine the correct diagnosis, which is essential for effective treatment.
