My Areas of Practice
Taking care of patients is both a privilege and an honor. During my training I discovered that dermatology incorporates all the areas that I am interseted in, especially infectious disease, oncology, rheumatology, pediatrics and surgery.   I find it very rewarding to work with people of all ages with a variety of skin disorders. I enjoy educating patients about sun protection and the importance of skin checks. I also like spending time to ensure patients understand their skin condition and answer questions regarding treatment and prevention  I strive to provide the absolute best care possible and my goal is to treat patients with the same kind of care I would want my loved ones' to receive.
