Care Philosophy

My specialty is skin signs of internal illness, and because of this, I value that the skin can be a window to what is going on internally. I find that patient's have great instincts about their health and a careful dialogue about their observations regarding their skin disease leads to more accurate diagnosis and effective treatment. Skin disease can be painful, both physically and emotionally, and it is my goal to work together with my patients in order to alleviate this pain.
