Innovators in Medicine: Bayou City Dermatology Says Doc Visits Don’t Have to be a Chore

Why did you choose to become a healthcare professional in Houston? Not only is Houston one of the fastest growing cities, but it’s also home. Born and raised in Houston, I felt there was no better place to establish roots for Bayou City Dermatology, hence the inspiration for our practice name. Houston is full of culture, great food, friendly people, and let’s not forget — we can experience all four seasons in one week!

In what way have you been an innovator on the cutting edge of your field? Dermatologists know that medical and cosmetic dermatology is always evolving, and we stay on top by providing customized and cutting-edge treatments for all skin conditions. There are several factors that set the physicians of Bayou City Dermatology apart, such as our informative newsletters offering skin care tips, monthly specials, and giveaways. Also, by offering convenient communication methods, we’ve made it simple for our patients to reach our team. Patients can quickly send a text message requesting an appointment or asking about a prescription.

What’s the most rewarding part of your work? We are able to develop long-lasting relationships with our patients. Skin and physical appearance can be personal topics for some people, and we appreciate our patients trusting us with their concerns to help improve their skin health. Skin health is important. Your skin is the body’s first defense against disease and infection, and it protects your internal organs from injuries.

What do you hope your patients will tell others about you? Visiting your doctor can seem like a chore, but we know that our patient’s time is valuable. By improving our practice with convenient communication methods (text message and email), and offering same-day, next-day, and Saturday appointments, we hope they feel valued and confident with the care we provide.

YOU CAN'T LIMIT Janelle to one title – Hairdresser. Her career and business has been established and built on a strong foundation. Using her two business degrees + one more in-process, this enables Janelle and the team to deliver not only a customer-focused experience, but a foundationally solid business. There is much more than meets the eye, and in sharing a little bit about Janelle, she was not only an international hair extension educator for over 14 years, but brings extensive expertise to blondes. She rounds this out with her previously launched namesake cosmetic line, which is a perfect complement to her belief that “Beauty is our Business”.

AS WE PRODUCE our second annual “Cool 100” list, we’re reminded of our thoughts as we debuted this feature last year. We acknowledged that deciding who and what is cool is not only a moving target but also entirely subjective. And that attempting to “rank” the coolest people in Houston is a fool’s errand, one that will leave us immediately open to criticism. “You think she is cooler than him? You included this person?! You left off that one!?"
