Our Physicians

Our board-certified dermatologists and surgeons are the foundation of Skin Care Specialty Physicians’ healthcare team. All of our physicians have had extensive and rigorous training and education: after their undergraduate degrees, they completed 4 years of medical school followed by 4-5 years of intense residency training in their specialty. Some have completed additional fellowships in a subspecialty, such as Mohs surgery or facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. In our team-based approach to patient care, our physicians are always on-site, working with our nurse practitioners and physician assistants, and oversee all aspects of patient care.
