I grew up with atopic dermatitis and acne, so I understand the impacts that skin conditions can have on someone. As a dermatologist, I strive to provide the best possible care to help others avoid the stigmas of skin disease.
I love receiving the ThreeForMe™ laser procedure! This procedure addresses many skin issues, and I love to compliment it with SkinPen® microneedling for textural improvement.
I can’t go without my daily tinted BB SPF 50 sunscreen in the morning to protect my skin. In the evening, I use my Tretinoin 0.05% prescription to rejuvenate my skin. Two daily necessities!
I knew I wanted to go into dermatology early in life as I suffered for years with atopic dermatitis/eczema and remember the influence a good dermatologist could have on my quality of life. Being born with hemifacial hypoplasia (one side of face being smaller than the other), I know how impactful properly done facial cosmetic procedures by a trained physician can have on ones self-esteem. I knew being a physician was a good fit for me because I have a passion for lifelong learning, teaching, and helping people.
I enjoy teaming up with my patients to create a personalized treatment plan, specific to my patient’s expectations, goals, lifestyle, and medical needs. I strive to provide comprehensive dermatology care by teaching my patients how to protect their skin, reverse the effects of the sun, treat skin cancers, and incorporate cosmetic procedures to meet their ultimate cosmetic goals. Patient satisfaction is top priority to me, and my team and I are committed to exceeding every patient’s expectations. The patient relationships that have been created in the last 10 years in my practice are very rewarding for me and our practice team.
