PRACTICE SPECIALTY

Our group is led by board-certified physicians who provide patient-centered and full-spectrum care. We know how important your health is, and we are doing our best to provide you with the most up-to-date, cutting-edge medicine. We pride ourselves on offering the full spectrum of dermatological care, from cosmetic to medical and surgical to reconstructive. We strive to build long-term relationships with our patients and their families. We’re honored that patients are placing their trust in us, and we owe them nothing less than clinical excellence. Our patients have been our strongest supporters, which makes it all the more special to be proud of what we have built together.


PERSONALIZED MEDICINE

Health care as it is practiced currently is becoming increasingly impersonal and corporatized. Additionally, physicians and practices are facing ever-increasing cost containment pressures that can negatively impact the quality of care. We miss the days of mom-and-pop shops and personal family physicians who knew us and our family members like their own neighbors—because they actually were. To us, this is the meaning of personalized medicine, and we’d like to bring that back to the South Bay. We believe that the corporate practice of medicine is not necessarily good medicine and cost-conscious medicine doesn’t have to compromise quality. We look forward to growing together within our community for years to come and seeing you in the neighborhood. 


MULTIDISCIPLINARY TEAM

Beyond years of specialized medical training, the truly multidisciplinary nature of our practice enables us to treat patients more effectively in comparison to traditional siloed practices. Although we are quite proud of our unique, forward-thinking structure, we are aware of the fact that no amount of collaboration and practice improvements can substitute for basic human skills like spending time with and listening to our patients.

FINDING BALANCE

As parents, physicians, business owners and community members, it can be challenging to find balance—if there is such a thing. All we can do is strive to perform our best in our personal and professional lives while always aiming to do better. And perhaps most importantly, to be present in the moment and enjoy the happy times while learning from the difficult ones. The pandemic was a uniquely challenging period that made us realize the importance of spending time with family and loved ones—especially with the addition of two new members to our family. It has been challenging to start a practice and a family during a global pandemic, but it has also been the greatest joy of our lives watching our practice and family grow over the past few years.
