I am a board-certified dermatologist with a clinical focus on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of skin cancers, including melanoma. I also help patients who have rashes and other skin conditions that occur during all types of cancer treatment. My goal is to identify and treat skin cancers as early as possible, and to provide the best care for patients who develop skin diseases while undergoing any type of cancer therapy.
As a doctor, I was drawn to dermatology because it’s a visual science. My patients and I can look at their skin together, and I can teach them what to look for to find skin cancer in its earliest stages. The earlier a melanoma is found, the better. A melanoma that is in its earliest stage (in situ), before it has left the top layer of the skin (epidermis), is completely curable.
