Dr. Dharamsi's Care Philosophy

"The first thing you should know about me is that I am a "people person" to the core. Growing up, I was inspired to go into medicine by my small town family physician, loving the idea of being able to really get to know members of my community and to provide a service to them that made a real impact. I have been told that I have a very down-to-earth and warm personality, and I try to treat my patients like I would members of my own family. One thing that I think may set me apart from other physicians is my love of teaching and my strong emphasis on patient education. Many have told me that I'm good at explaining medical complexities in a simple and demystifying way, which helps patients feel more empowered and more likely to follow my recommendations. By getting us all on the same page, my patients and I are able to proceed with their treatment plan in a team-wise approach, which usually leads to great results. I am a true "general" dermatologist and enjoy practicing all aspects of my specialty. I love taking care of routine and common skin concerns and performing procedures, and I also welcome the challenge of caring for patients with complex medical conditions. When it comes to cosmetic treatments, I am definitely of the "less-is-more" mindset. My goal is to help my patients look and feel refreshed and healthy by enhancing their own natural features—not turning them into someone else—with the use of skin care, chemical peels, lasers, and/or injectables. The results of my conservative approach are often subtle, but very significant. I believe in helping people age gracefully and tastefully-- women and men alike--, and it is such a pleasure to see what a positive and meaningful impact I am able to make on people's lives through these safe and simple techniques. The bottom line is that I love my job, I love my patients, and I feel grateful to get to live out my life's calling through my practice."
