With mixed emotions, we’d like to announce the retirement of Dr. Norman May. Over the next few weeks, our practice will be transitioning over to the care of Houston-based Heights Dermatology.

We want our patients to know that Dr. May hand-picked Dr. Desai and his group to carry on his legacy. With this change, our name will remain Modern Dermatology and we will continue serving patients of Southeast Texas. For more information about Dr. Desai, please feel free to visit www.heightsskin.com.

Please stay tuned for more updates as we transition in the upcoming weeks

Welcome to Modern Dermatology

At Modern Dermatology, our priority is to deliver quality care to informed patients in a comfortable and convenient setting

Patch Testing

Patch testing is a common diagnostic tool used to identify the specific agent that triggers an allergic reaction in the form of contact dermatitis. Call us to schedule a patch test.

Drug Eruption Database

Modern Dermatology has access to an easy-to-use online database that allows us to search the profiles of thousands of generic and trade name drugs and other products.
Moles (Nevi)

Most moles are harmless, but a change in size, shape, color or texture could be indicative of a cancerous growth.

Psoriasis & Dermatitis

Psoriasis is a skin condition that creates red patches of skin with white, flaky scales. It most commonly occurs on the elbows, knees and trunk, but can appear anywhere on the body.


Every year, about 80% of adolescents have some form of acne and about 5% of adults experience acne.

Skin Cancers

Skin cancer is the most common form of human cancers, affecting more than one million Americans every year.

Quality Care

When you have skin problems, you need to turn to a dermatologist who listens and responds … an experienced doctor who knows the field and can effectively diagnose and treat your needs … a friendly physician who counsels you on the best ways to maintain and improve your health. Our staff meet all these criteria. Plus, you benefit from a dedicated team of trained professionals who give you the individualized attention you deserve.

Informed Patients

Norman C. May, MD believes that informed patients are better prepared to make decisions regarding their health and well being. That is why we’ve included an extensive section on this web site covering the full array of topics associated with dermatology and diagnoses and treatments for skin problems. We encourage you to look through these pages whenever you have an interest or concern about your dermatological needs and care.

Comfortable, Convenient Setting

The best care in the world doesn’t mean anything if you can’t access it. At Modern Dermatology, we strive to make our Beaumont office as efficient and convenient as possible. Included in these web pages is information about Norman C. May, MD’s office, including our Beaumont location, maps, directions, hours, insurance policies and appointment scheduling. You can even email a request for an appointment right here!

We hope you find this web site useful and invite you to contact us with your questions at any time.
