The Polyclinic Dermatology welcomes Dr. Melanie Clemenz, a new dermatologist at its Madison Center location starting September 8, 2017.
Dr. Clemenz received her medical degree at the University of South Carolina. She completed a combined internal medicine and dermatology residency at the University of Minnesota in the Department of Medicine and the Department of Dermatology.
“I’ve wanted to be a dermatologist since I was very young. My mother is a dermatologist, and my biggest role model,” said Dr. Clemenz. “I was so impressed with her when I was little and her achievements inspired me to pursue a career in dermatology as well.”
Dr. Clemenz’s residency training in a combined internal medicine and dermatology program was very unique, and allows her to take care of patients who have more complex medical dermatologic issues. Dr. Clemenz’s practice encompasses medical, cosmetic and surgical dermatology. “I definitely consider myself a people-person. I have always said what I love most about my job is that I get to help people on a daily basis. I am very fortunate to be in a career where I get to share the knowledge I have gained to help my patients and treat skin diseases,” says Dr. Clemenz.
Dr. Clemenz loves being outdoors. She owns two bikes, and loves to run, and says she is excited to be in the Pacific Northwest where she can enjoy lots of different outdoor activities. Dr. Clemenz also loves art. She majored in art as an undergraduate and enjoys taking classes at local art colleges in her free time.
