About

Bio

I love the field of dermatology and being able to help people with their skin concerns. Whether it's removing a skin cancer, helping a teenager with problem acne or just answering questions regarding daily skin care, I love what I get to do everyday! When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family. I love sports, music and travel!

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.

I have always gotten eczema everywhere, but this is different than what I normally get. It has a ringworm type look to it.
