About

Bio

Board certified dermatologist. I specialize in skin cancer detection, skin cancer surgeries and cosmetic dermatology, including lasers, Botox, and fillers. I also see general pediatric and adult dermatology including eczema, acne, rosacea, psoriasis, rashes, and other hair, nail and skin diseases.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
