With my patients, I like to “peel the onion,” asking questions layer by layer, getting the information necessary to provide truly customized care.

In her own words: "My philosophy on skin care is a simple back-to-basics program: Cleanse skin with a gentle cleanser, exfoliate and tone, moisturize, and then use sun protection. My theory is that most people's skin problems have to do with what they are using on their skin, which unfortunately often includes harsh products, full of allergens and sensitizers. With a back-to-basics approach, I think we will see less inflammation and less skin disease.
I also like to take what I call the “Peel the Onion” approach with my patients. I begin by asking questions. I ask what types of products they’ve been using on their skin, are they washing their hair daily, what is their daily routine and lifestyle like, do they have any underlying medical issues, etc. This allows me to “peel the onion,” layer by layer, and get the information necessary to provide truly customized care.
Regardless of the reason for the visit, whether a medical issue or a cosmetic concern, all of my patients are offered an annual skin cancer screening."
