Michele Burgess, MD

Dr. Burgess’s interest in dermatology stems from her own struggle with acne as a teenager. She’s experienced firsthand the frustration of over-the-counter products that don’t work and misleading advice from the cosmetics counter.

Now, as a board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Burgess is able to help people understand the unique factors influencing the condition of their skin, from genetics to bad reactions to products. She enjoys treating patients of all ages and specializes in a wide range of conditions and treatments, offering everything from cosmetic treatments to skin cancer screenings and wart removal.

Dr. Burgess grew up in Canada, but has lived in Chicago for more than a decade. She enjoys the diversity of the city, its wonderful restaurants, and the summer music festivals. She came to Chicago by way of Detroit, where she completed her residency training at the Henry Ford Health System. Before that, she completed her medical degree at Wayne State University.

Prior to joining Pinnacle Dermatology, Dr. Burgess was running Loop Dermatology and Acne Care Center for more than five years. While at Loop Dermatology, she built a practice with the goal of creating an intimate environment where patients can get the best possible care with a personalized touch. Bringing her strong background in medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology to an intimate and professional setting, she provides patient-oriented treatment plans tailored to suit your individual needs.
