As the Norfolk, VA population surged after WWII, a young Dr. Harry Pariser identified the need for a dermatologist to treat a multitude of skin conditions. Taking care of these folks was his mission, and he opened his first office in downtown Norfolk, VA in 1946 as the first dermatologist in the Tidewater area.
A Family Practice
Thirty years later his sons, Dr. David Pariser and Dr. Robert Pariser, joined their father in the practice and continued for 18 years as a three-provider team. Since then new offices have opened in 5 additional cities: Newport News, Virginia Beach, Williamsburg, Chesapeake and Suffolk. As of today, we have 18 physicians, 5 physician assistants, 1 nurse practitioner and 6 aestheticians.
