What i love most about my profession
We are always seeking new answers to old questions and improving upon options and solutions. No other profession aims to constantly improve itself like dermatology does.
What i can’t live without
What would you say your greatest achievement has been?

Celeb photo my patients most often bring in
What sets my practice apart
Everything we do is tailored to each patient, not only to address their specific concerns but also looking at them as a whole.
Most memorable patient reaction
Happiness, that never gets old.
Why do you employ a less-is-more philosophy?
The simpler choice is often the best. Many doctors over-engineer things and, in the process, add to complications.
How do you manage patient expectations?
My motto is to under-promise and over-deliver. Setting realistic expectations is the key to a good relationship and what distinguishes how providers retain happy patients. My patients come back because they feel they have been properly informed.
What new services are you excited to offer?
We have more noninvasive fat removal options now that the technology has advanced so much over the past few years and even more options coming in the future.
