Practice Philosophy

“You are a unique and special individual.  I want to get to know you and provide the most comprehensive and highest level of care possible.  My primary goal as your dermatologist is to cultivate a long term relationship that puts the health of your skin first and foremost throughout every decade of your life.  I want to help you understand what true skin health means based on the latest science and evidence based medicine, and to help you make informed decisions that are centered on your own health goals and values.  We will work together to keep you and your skin as healthy and vibrant as possible. 

I have a special interest in high-risk populations:  those with personal or family histories of multiple skin cancers and/or melanoma(s), patients with large numbers of moles, patients who are post-transplant (solid organ or bone marrow), patients who are immunosuppressed from either medications or disease processes that compromise the immune system, and those who are suffering from blood borne malignancies such as leukemia and lymphoma.  We will partner together to identify skin cancer early and ultimately work together to minimize your risk of skin cancer including basal cell, squamous cell and melanoma throughout your lifetime.”
