Hi, I'm Dr. Neil Bhatia from San Diego. Saturday at the Fall Clinical conference in Las Vegas, I'll be speaking on updates in photodynamic therapy, but more importantly how to integrate photodynamic therapy into practice. There are a lot of obstacles and concerns about coding, about taking up space, about the overhead, and even more so about time and temperature for incubation, as well as who to treat. And I'll be getting into some of those details as well as kind of reminding us how important photodynamic therapy is for field treatment, as well as treatment of recalcitrant acne, and actinic keratosis that are on the way not just the ones we see. So join me and speaking out actinic keratosis, acne and all the other conditions that we can treat with photodynamic therapy on saturday, and see you in Las Vegas.
