BOCA RATON, Fla., July 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Integrated Dermatology Group (IDG), the leading national dermatology practice group, today announced it has acquired Eastern Connecticut Dermatology in Groton, CT. The acquisition represents IDG's first acquisition in the state, with additional Connecticut practices slated to join the group in 2014. Dr. Robert Ecker, MD has joined the practice as partner and Medical Director.

"We're excited to build a presence in Connecticut and this expansion reinforces our belief that the landscape of medicine is changing," said Jeff Queen, president of Integrated Dermatology Group. "Dermatologists across the country are recognizing that the IDG model allows for a focus on the practice of medicine while we handle administrative, back-office and other related responsibilities. This acquisition is the most recent example that IDG can assist virtually any dermatology practice to grow, work more efficiently and be more profitable."

"Being a part of Integrated Dermatology Group will allow us to strengthen the infrastructure and operations of the practice, ensuring its success for the long term," said Dr. Ecker. "The practice will be able to grow, adding more services while taking advantage of the practice management and other back-office tools IDG provides," adds Dr. Ecker.

 IDG has been pursuing an aggressive expansion across the country. The Groton, CT announcement comes on the heels of the recent announcement of its partnership with Integrated Dermatology of Tidewater in Norfolk, VA.

About Integrated Dermatology

Headquartered in Boca Raton, FL, IDG owns, manages and operates dermatology practices throughout the United States. The company is aggressively pursuing rapid expansion by acquiring and partnering with dermatology practices. IDG has created an innovative program that provides dermatologists looking to sell their practice, and dermatologists who desire a partnership, an opportunity that previously has not existed in dermatology. IDG provides selling dermatologists monetary value for their practice, while allowing them to remain at the practice indefinitely. For physicians wishing to exit a practice, IDG allows them to monetize a lifetime of work and simultaneously provide younger dermatologists the opportunity to immediately own and take over the established practice of a retiring dermatologist.

IDG's mission is to improve the quality of life for its partner dermatologists while adding to their success. IDG enables its partner physicians to focus on providing high quality dermatological care by relieving the stress of management and by offering its doctors expert business advisory services, compliance guidance, financial services, human resources and related management services necessary to achieve best business practices.
