Dr. Carlin's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Carlin "Dr. Carlin’s research experience includes an award-winning paper on a method of measuring the response of psoriasis to treatment, as well as treatments for rosacea and psoriasis. He shares, “Dermatology affords the opportunity to practice every aspect of medicine that I love- the ability to intervene as a surgeon, to think as an internist, to treat children as a pediatrician, to delve microscopically as a pathologist, and to discover as a scientist.”"
