We are dermatology


Paviol Dermatology. decades in the making.  

People poke fun at dermatologist...never on call, predictable hours, “pimple popper MD” (thanks Seinfeld, I really do love you). But we have the opportunity to care for the largest organ in the body....one that unites us all. We all want great skin and avoid skin cancer. Over the past six years, we’ve worked to grow a leading dermatology practices in Lake Norman, but when the opportunity arose to take on a new opportunity closer to home, and start from scratch it was the opportunity of a lifetime.   

Armed with a wonderful staff, we now aim to take a 44 year old trusted practice in CLT and make it our own with an homage to the past and an eye to the future and have fun doing so along the way.  

We want to disrupt medical care in a positive way. We are one practice, but the support system at Paviol Dermatology runs deep. We believe that if we can do it at our office, it can be done anywhere. We want to show how medicine can be better for everyone going forward. It is that simple.

"Dr. Paviol and his entire team are absolutely amazing!! His bedside manner is awesome and he’s extremely personable and informative. On my first visit he performed a biopsy on an abnormal mole and prescribed me some medicine for my rosacea/acne. Within a month my skin cleared up tremendously and I was so happy! After my follow up appointment, I was referred to Chloe to get a hydrapure facial, since the medicine was drying out my skin (very common). Chloe was so sweet and did an incredible job! I’ve already recommended all my friends to go here and cannot say enough great things about this place. If you live in Charlotte and need a dermatologist, this is it!"

"Dr. Paviol, hands down, runs the best medical office I've ever visited. I am definitely a tough critic when it comes to customer service, and the entire staff is incredible. Dr. P remembers details about you and your life that you would never expect from someone that meets new people every day. His recommendations + Chloe's amazing facial work has already cleared my skin drastically and improved the look and feel. Not to mention, I'm getting married in September and they put together an entire plan to make sure i'm glowing on the big day. So thankful I found my Dermatologist office for life!"
