My Journey in Medicine

I love being a skin expert and helping people achieve their skin care goals. Our skin health is intricately connected to our mental health, and it’s such a satisfying feeling to help a patient get better and impact their overall well-being. My mission is to provide evidence-based medical care with compassion and grace so that when each patient leaves an appointment with me, they know they are in good hands. 

The best part of my work is developing lifelong relationships with patients and their family members. My specialties include treating skin of color, performing cosmetic dermatology with Botox/Dysport, providing fillers and laser surgery, and preventing, detecting, and treating different types of skin cancer. I also commonly treat a variety of skin conditions, like atypical or dysplastic moles, acne, hyperpigmentation, warts, eczema and other rashes, psoriasis, and unusual growths. Besides the skin, dermatologists treat hair and nail disorders too!

I’m passionate about educating others on skin disorders. At Flo, I enjoy advising on dermatology-related content to help millions of girls and women around the world have healthy skin and feel amazing.
