After 15 years in the army and a number of years in academia, Dr. J. Scott Henning recently opened doors to his private dermatology practices in both Hillsborough and North Brunswick.
Dr. Henning did his dermatology training at New York University in the Ronald O. Perelman Department of Dermatology. Prior to entering private practice, he served as Chief of Dermatology at Brooke Army Medical Centers Department of Dermatology in San Antonio, TX. Brooke Army Dermatology is one of the largest dermatology residency programs in the United States. Dr. Henning is poised to handle your most challenging skin concerns.
Through Dr. Henning’s experiences with the army, he has seen it all, especially bad burns and wounds. “I like the more complicated cases, such as psoriasis and skin cancer, because of my training at NYU and my experience in the army.”
In his private practice, Dr. Henning sees people of all ages. He particularly enjoys helping children. “I like the patients. I get something out of meeting all of them. I learn their stories. I spend a lot of time with each patient but still manage to run on time. I think you are lucky if you get a job you really like. I get to meet interesting people. I get to fix people. Most of the time, my job is positive. I get to see my results.”
Dr. Henning emphasizes there is no doubt skin cancer is a large issue. The number of cases per year continues to climb. Skin cancer is preventable if caught early through regular skin exams. It only becomes real problem if you wait too long. “A skin exam only takes a few minutes, then you are good for another year.”
“In addition to being sun smart, people need to be careful. Getting a skin exam is one of the most important things you can do.” Dr. Henning emphasizes the importance of having an annual skin exam near your birthday each year starting by age 20.
Dr. Henning accepts all insurances, with the exception of Medicaid.
