RealSkin Dermatology

Real Experts. Real Results.

As a practice, RealSkin Dermatology is the culmination of Dr. Rusty Rowe’s clinical experience and devotion to patients. Gathering a group of dedicated experts solely focused on patient care is the RealSkin model. Dr. Rowe completed medical school at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, and his internship was a surgical transitional program at Tripler Army Medical Center in Hawaii. After serving with the 7th Special Forces Group as their Battalion Surgeon, he completed his first residency in family medicine at Fort Benning, Georgia. After 16 years in operational medicine, he completed a second residency in dermatology at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Bethesda. He is board certified in dermatology and is a member of the American Society for Mohs Surgeons. Leaving Fort Hood as Chief of Dermatology, Rowe retired from army medicine as a colonel. His military career was a journey that exemplified his love of operational medicine which supported the soldiers on the front lines. This commitment to care continues in RealSkin Dermatology — serving you, closer to home. The availability of clinic locations offers patients access to dermatology in locations convenient to them. These clinic relationships also allow closer cooperation with every primary care partner. “My goal is to earn your trust: one referral, one relationship, one result at a time,” Rowe said. “Especially through these terrible COVID times, having a trusting relationship with your medical team is crucial. We have an exceptional group of very experienced providers with a combined 72 years in dermatology. It is simply my privilege to work alongside these experts, bringing the best in dermatology to Waco and to our patients. We look forward to welcoming you into our clinics every day.”
