My Passion for Healthcare

My desire to become a doctor began in the first grade when I discovered my passion for science and desire to help others. In medical school, I was drawn to pediatric care because I enjoyed working with children and discovered the long-lasting impact one can make on a child’s mental and physical health through patient education and advocacy in addition to medical skincare treatments. As a pediatric dermatologist, I can combine my interests in multiple pediatric medical specialties to treat and counsel patients with skin conditions that affect many aspects of their well-being.

Services I Provide

  1. Acne treatment, including isotretinoin
  2. Treatment of genetic skin conditions
  3. Skin biopsies for moles and rashes
  4. Ultraviolet phototherapy
  5. Treatment of eczema, psoriasis and lupus
  6. Hyperhidrosis treatment, including BOTOX
  7. Laser and surgical treatments of birthmarks

My Clinical Focus

I love pediatric dermatology and see pediatric patients with a variety of skin, hair and nail conditions. I am particularly interested in the treatment of birthmarks, genetic skin diseases and autoimmune skin conditions. I enjoy counseling and reviewing treatment options with families, and together we develop the best treatment plan for the patient. Patients in my clinic are not just treated like little adults and I will do all that I can to make things better. I am also passionate about teaching and frequently have residents and students work with me in clinic.
