Dr. Scheel's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Scheel "Dr. Scheel is a Board Certified Dermatologist with 17 years of expert experience in skin conditions and treatments for the skin, hair and nails. She began her skin wellness center in Kailua Kona, Hawaii, out of a desire to offer patients a personalized expert visit for their skin concerns. Dr. Scheel's vision has been achieved by creating a practice that includes state of the art technology, a caring staff, a beautiful office, time to listen to her patients concerns and customized treatment plans. Her initial dermatology consultations are 30 to 45 minutes versus the national average of only 7.5 minutes. Dr. Scheel was professionally trained through the University of Texas system. Her undergraduate degree was in pharmacy from UT Austin. She put herself through medical school working nights in the Cardiac Care unit. In Pharmacy School, she was pharmacy council president and gained admission into Rho Chi Pharmacy Honor Society. She won awards at graduation for the most contributions to the College of Pharmacy and Outstanding Student at the University of Texas. Her Medical Degree was obtained at the University of Texas Southwestern/Parkland Hospital. While in medical school she volunteered with the Christian Medical and Dental Society, worked as a pharmacist and enjoyed running with her girlfriends. She graduated at the top of her class earning her admission into Alpha Omega Alpha honor society and a coveted spot in a dermatology-training program. She did an internship in Internal Medicine and her Residency in Dermatology at the University of Texas Medical Branch. She thrived on the wide variety of training in medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology. She was Chief Resident and passed her Board exams in dermatology in 1999, the same year she ran her first marathon. Dr. Scheel practiced Dermatology in Dallas, Texas with a group medical practice before moving to Hawaii to follow her dream. She initially worked part time with Kaiser Permanente while setting up her own Dermatology office in Kailua Kona. Dr. Scheel stays active in her field by attending national conferences and advanced training seminars to ensure that she brings the latest in skin care to our Big Island. She completes over 50 hours in continuing education each year to stay current; a value well above the minimum required standards. Dr. Scheel speaks at local and national meetings on many aspects of dermatology. She has given presentations about skin cancer, psoriasis, exercise in medicine, acne and more. She is a recognized speaker for Medicis pharmaceuticals, training other dermatologists in Hawaii on cosmetic dermatology with fillers and relaxers. She also is a physician trainer for the Allergan line of injectables. Dr. Scheel is on faculty for the University of Minnesota Medical School and has medical students intern in her office twice a year. She also hosts high school students, dermatology residents, medical students and PA students who seek her out for her dermatological knowledge. Dr. Scheel is also in demand by the national media and has written articles and been quoted for Oprah, Marie Claire, Sun Precautions, Fox News, and Triathlete magazine. She is profiled in New Beauty Magazine as an "Expert Injector" and is listed as one of the Top Doctors in the Honolulu Magazine."

They spent considerable time listening to my concerns about aging skin and provided me with a range of options to address them. It didn't happen overnight but I'm now a firm believer that a daily skincare regimen and that treatments do help. My younger sister says I now look younger than she does!
