I came to Park Nicollet Clinic after 20 years of dermatology practice at Hennepin County Medical Center, where I treated patients of all possible ages, racial and ethnic groups and in a variety of social circumstances. My passion is teaching dermatology residents, which I will continue to do at least twice a week at Park Nicollet. This helps to keep me sharp and my knowledge fresh and up-to-date. I also help patients with complicated problems which have not responded well to the usual treatments.
