Welcome to Our Practice

Welcome! Since 1980, Mid-South Dermatology has been working with patients to provide the best dermatological care for patients in the Bartlett area. Our providers' experience in dermatology is coupled with genuine concern for our patients.

Our staff is dedicated to your comfort and prompt attention as well. Our goal is to help you achieve and maintain healthy skin.

This website provides you with an overview of our practice and the field of dermatology. As you navigate the site, you’ll find information about Mid-South Dermatology’s practice philosophy, physicians, our Bartlett office location, insurance policies, and appointment scheduling procedures. Please browse the site at your convenience and feel free to contact us with any questions. You can also request an appointment by clicking here.

You’ll find an array of valuable information on this website about problems, diagnoses and treatments related to dermatology and skin care. We believe informed patients are better prepared to make decisions about their health and well-being. We encourage you to review this information to help you understand any health concerns you may face.

PLEASE NOTE: We are  STILL IN NETWORK with Cigna and United Healthcare Insurance plans. 

There have been some very misleading letters sent out by Cigna and United HealthCare stating that Dr. James Turner is no longer in network. This letter was sent out due to Dr. Turner’s retirement from our practice in January of 2021. Dr. Malika Tuli and our other providers here at Mid-South Dermatology are still IN Network with these plans. We have not been made aware that any other plans have issued this letter to their members, however, if you have a plan other than Cigna or United HealthCare and have received this letter from your insurance company, it is NOT correct and we welcome any calls to confirm this for you. You may also call your plan directly and ask if Dr. Malika Tuli is listed as in network. Regardless of what provider you see at our office, if Dr. Tuli is listed, then all providers in our office fall under her network status.
