Patients Seen: All Ages

Ear­ly in my train­ing at the Mayo Clin­ic I was taught that the inter­est of the patient is the only inter­est to be con­sid­ered. With that as my guid­ing prin­ci­ple, I strive to cre­ate a warm and trust­ing rela­tion­ship with my patients so they may feel at ease dis­cussing their skin care issues with me. I believe strong­ly in edu­cat­ing patients on how best they can be in con­trol of their own out­comes; they are the ones who live day to day in their own skin and I need them to help with their care plan! Last­ly, I try to admin­is­ter a healthy dose of laugh­ter with each pre­scrip­tion or pro­ce­dure as I’ve found this helps my patients get bet­ter more quickly.
