“One of my favorite aspects of practicing medicine is building rapport with my patients. I especially love treating adolescent and young adult patients and watching as their self esteem improves, often dramatically. It is truly an extremely rewarding process.”

Favorite product:

“Elta MD UV Clear 46 is one of my favorite products as it is oil free and gentle on the skin while still providing protection against the sun. It contains zinc oxide, which provides a physical barrier between the sun and your skin. It is also formulated in a tinted form for those of us who want a little extra color in our sunscreen!”
