Why did you choose Dermatology?
My path to dermatology began as a patient. Experiencing acne at a young age I realized that this common problem goes deeper than the skin. I chose dermatology because of the connection it has to a person’s mental well-being and happiness. In short, I want to make each patient who leaves my office feel confident, comfortable, and the best versions of themselves.
