My Journey in Medicine

The field of dermatology is exciting because it’s highly innovative and always changing. As research develops and new technologies are discovered, there are continued opportunities for growth and learning. My professional role as a physician allows me to be not only a health care provider but also a mentor, teacher, and advocate for my patients. 

I’m incredibly passionate about providing the highest-quality care, using state-of-the-art technology and the latest treatment techniques. For instance, I have specialized training in cutaneous laser and dermatologic surgery. I practice medical, surgical, and cosmetic dermatology, and I enjoy being able to enhance patients’ natural beauty through aesthetic injectables. It’s extremely motivating to help someone achieve their skin goals and witness the transformation in my patients by bringing out their most powerful features!

Evidence-based medicine and safety are the two most important aspects for me when it comes to caring for my patients. Furthermore, I aim to create a friendly and comfortable atmosphere in my exam room. Finally, I regularly educate patients about prevention techniques to protect their health, such as how to spot early signs of skin cancer.

On the Medical Board at Flo, I help with various content projects related to skin health. My goal is to provide medically accurate information in an engaging way so that our millions of users worldwide feel great in their skin.
