A dermatologist is a doctor who specializes in treating the skin, hair, nails and mucous membranes. Dermatologists treat more than 3,000 different skin diseases including skin cancer, psoriasis, contact dermatitis, and nail disorders. In addition to treating various skin conditions, dermatologists also work to improve the appearance of their patients skin by treating wrinkles, ages spots, signs of aging, and acne scars.
I was fortunate to perform my advanced fellowship training at UCSF where I received intense training in Mohs Micrographic Surgery, Laser Surgery, and Cosmetic Dermatology. Following, and completing, the required steps and programs to become a dermatologist, one is considered to be “board eligible.” To be considered “board certified,” one must sit for a proctored lengthy examination administered by the American Board of Dermatology. I am fortunate enough to be a board-certified dermatologist with an advanced fellowship, and I am proud to serve this wonderful community.
