My Passion for Healthcare

I decided to pursue medicine as a teenager. Prior to this decision, I wanted to be a teacher and believed that medicine was for more “serious” and “scientific” people. While working as a medical transcriptionist in high school, I quickly realized how rewarding medicine can be. I enjoyed learning about the “detective work” of assessing a patient and finding a diagnosis, as well as the humanitarian aspect of working with people when they are most in need. I'm extremely fortunate to now be doing all of the things I love: caring for patients, teaching residents and constantly learning.

Services I Provide

  1. Accepting new patients of all ages
  2. Biopsies and skin cancer surgery
  3. Autoimmune diseases, psoriasis & eczema
  4. Cosmetic procedures and rejuvenation
  5. Skin cancer surveillance & treatment
  6. Cyst and skin tag removal
  7. Acne treatment

My Clinical Focus

Dermatology offers such a wide variety of opportunities that it's difficult to pick just one focus! I enjoy seeing adults and children. I value the cerebral processing of medical dermatology and the hands-on action of biopsies and procedures. I appreciate the visual aspects and creativity of performing cosmetic procedures. I'm most enthusiastic, however, about my interactions with my patients and the time I get to spend teaching residents and students. Dermatology allows excellent continuity with patients, and teaching enriches my career in a way that I wouldn't be able to achieve otherwise.
