Dr. Pynes was born in Dothan, Alabama and has spent most of his life in Alabama. He earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Alabama. He then received his Doctor of Medicine (MD) from the College of Medicine of the University of South Alabama. Dr. Pynes completed residencies in both internal medicine and dermatology in Birmingham Alabama. He is board certified in both Internal Medicine and Dermatology. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology. In 1984 he opened Dermatology Associates of Dothan and has maintained that practice to the present. Dr. Pynes has opened satellite offices in Enterprise AL, Troy AL, and Eufaula AL. He is assisted in these south Alabama offices by a full-time physician and a full-time physician assistant. We will add a full-time nurse practitioner in Dothan in June 2018. Also, several other dermatologists from Surgical Dermatology Group (with offices also in Birmingham, Huntsville, and Montgomery) are in the Dothan office 1-2 days per week performing Mohs surgery. Over time, his practice has included several aspects of dermatology, but he now limits his practice to general dermatology and skin cancer treatment.
In the summer of 2017, Dr. Pynes and his wife Tina built a house in Owens Cross Roads near Huntsville to be closer to grandchildren. When he decided to move to this location, he decided to open a dermatology office in Huntsville also. This practice is Huntsville Dermatology. For a while, he will work in both Huntsville and Dothan. The Huntsville Dermatology hours will at first be Thursday and Friday, but he hopes to expand those hours soon. He will add a full-time dermatology trained Nurse Practitioner to Huntsville Dermatology in December.
Memberships Include American Academy of Dermatology, Alabama Dermatology Society, American Medical Association, Medical Association of the State of Alabama, Florida Medical Association, Madison County Medical Society, pending, and Houston County Medical Society.
