I was diagnosed with melanoma 20 years ago and my experience was so profound that I changed my career. Prior to my diagnosis, I had several practitioners evaluate my melanoma without concern. Eventually I saw a provider who took time with me, performed a biopsy and saved my life.
This has made a profound impact on the way I practice medicine. I want to create a great experience for everyone I see. I do what needs to be done to find an accurate diagnosis and work with my patients to establish a treatment plans that suit their needs. I always want to know and understand my patient’s wants, needs and expectations. Together we can improve your dermatologic health. I look forward to meeting you.
