My Passion for Healthcare

My love of medicine began with caring for animals as a kid. My first dermatology patient was actually a pony - I tried every cream I could get my hands on to make him better! As I matured, I discovered that caring for people in the practice of medicine is extraordinarily rewarding. After working with several wonderful pediatric dermatologists during my training, I was hooked. Practicing pediatric dermatology allows me to care for children and their families, teach and mentor learners, and work with colleagues for whom I have the utmost respect.

  2. Hyperhidrosis treatment, including BOTOX
  3. Acne treatment, including isotretinoin

My Clinical Focus

I am committed to helping patients and families navigate all aspects of pediatric and adolescent dermatology. Thus, I see patients with more common problems such as acne, atopic dermatitis, and warts as well as patients with less common diagnoses such as hyperhidrosis, vascular birthmarks, and pigmented lesions. I am particularly interested in hyperhidrosis, psoriasis, vascular malformations, laser surgery, and other surgical procedures.
