I am a board-certified dermatologist and pediatrician, practicing adult and pediatric medical dermatology, as well as cosmetic dermatology, at offices in both Beverly Hills and Santa Monica, California. I am a clinical instructor of pediatric dermatology at the University of Southern California, where I teach residents and medical students. I am an active member of many local and national medical societies, for which I have helped create Sun Safety educational materials for school-aged children, and for which I write regular columns for their professional newsletters. I have written journal articles and sections in medical textbooks, and I am a contributor and advisor for many print and online magazines and health sites, including: Women’s Health Magazine, Men’s Fitness, Self Magazine, Lucky Magazine, NBC News, Livestrong, Healthline and SheFinds.
I enjoy treating skin disease and working together with my patients to create personalized, practical and effective skin care plans. I am an advocate for safe sun practices and encourage everyone to make sunscreen a routine part of their daily morning regimen.
