Dr. Secrest's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Secrest "Dr. Secrest brings clinical expertise in general adult and pediatric dermatology to Davis and Weber Counties with his primary office in Farmington, Utah. He is a Clinical Instructor in the Department of Dermatology at the University of Utah. He treats a broad range of common skin disorders, such as acne, eczema, warts, and skin cancer, with a focus on optimal patient outcomes using cost-effective care. He is a member of the American Academy of Dermatology and the Society for Pediatric Dermatology. He completed an intern year at Cincinnati Children's Hospital prior to his dermatology training at the University of Utah, where he served as a chief resident. Dr. Secrest received his medical and research training at the University of Pittsburgh, earning a master's degree in Public Health and a PhD in epidemiology (population health research). His academic interests are increasingly focused around patient-centered care and outcomes. He is currently developing a system-wide computer and tablet-based platform to collect patient reported outcomes data for all dermatologic conditions at every patient visit at the University of Utah Clinics. This information from patients will be invaluable in optimizing care and treatment algorithms in dermatology and understanding and recognizing the extent to which patients' skin disorders affect their daily lives. His dermatology research to date has centered around patient motivations and preferences with care, as well as the problem of increasing medication costs to the patient and the healthcare system overall. He successfully obtained an NIH training grant during his MD/PhD training. He has co-authored more than 30 journal articles and one book chapter in the NIH publicationDiabetes in America. Dr. Secrest is a member of the American Academy of Dermatology's Drug Pricing and Transparency Task Force as well as serving on several committees within the Department of Dermatology. He also serves as a reviewer for several journals, including JAMA Dermatology. He is deeply committed to mentoring and training faculty, residents, and medical students in clinical and epidemiologic research."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Secrest "My goal is to get you and your skin better. That's why I like an academic practice - it gives me access to some of the nation's experts and specialists in the Department of Dermatology at the University of Utah. We have weekly Grand Rounds where patients who are not improving as expected can come to have 20 or more academic dermatologists weigh in on the condition and next steps with treatment."
