I have the great fortune of loving my work. Dermatology is a fascinating specialty, but it is the personal interaction with my wonderful patients that gives me the most joy. With each year of practice, my life is more enriched by the patients I meet, and by those I grow to know better with each repeat visit. I am humbled and honored by the trust my patients place in me. I honor that trust by working hard to provide the best possible care. I consider it my responsibility to my patients to stay current and informed within dermatology. I want each patient to feel cared for and to enjoy your visit. This means I listen to you, treat you with respect, and design a treatment plan based on current medical knowledge and with your specific needs in mind. I will do what’s right for you, not most convenient for me. It is my privilege to care for you, and I am grateful for the opportunity.

As I reflect, my real education began after my formal training in medical school, residency and fellowship. I am honored to be granted the privilege to be of service to my patients, who are among the best teachers I have ever had. I believe in old fashioned doctor-patient relationship based on sincerity, respect and trust. My patients are like family to me, and I want them to be treated as I would treat my own family. I greatly value our relationship. I am committed to offer personalized care, as each individual is unique and has specific concerns and needs. The quality of my patients’ care and experience is of utmost importance to me.
