For many unknown reasons, physicians are prescribing and utilizing phototherapy less in the treatment of psoriasis. Experienced doctors, such as dermatologist Abby Van Voorhees , are promoting and supporting the use of light therapy as it is a safe and effective treatment option, stating “phototherapy is becoming an underappreciated modality in the care of patients with psoriasis.” Dr. Van Voorhees also encourages residents to learn more about this therapeutic modality to truly understand “the benefits it provides to patients.”
