Dermatology

Practices In: Downers Grove, Hinsdale, Lombard
Patients Seen: All Ages

Get­ting to know the patient on a pro­fes­sion­al and per­son­al lev­el is an inte­gral part of my prac­tice and I strive to deliv­er the excel­lent care and advice that I would give my own fam­i­ly and friends.

Clinical Interests

I have a strong der­ma­tol­ogy back­ground gained through train­ing and expe­ri­ence in the man­age­ment of acne, pso­ri­a­sis, eczema and skin neo­plasms. I involve each patient in their health­care with edu­ca­tion and dis­cus­sion of avail­able treat­ment options. I have a spe­cial inter­est in aller­gic con­tact der­mati­tis and patch test­ing, eth­nic hair and skin­care and non-inva­sive laser treatments.

Personal Interests

I enjoy spend­ing time with my fam­i­ly, exer­cis­ing and watch­ing Pur­due sports. Pri­or to becom­ing a physi­cian assis­tant, I worked as an assis­tant ath­let­ic train­er at Down­ers Grove North High School, so I have an exten­sive sports med­i­cine background.
