Why did you choose Dermatology?

My Dad had a long and successful career in Family Practice in San Antonio. In my Medical School training at UT Health Center San Antonio, I was exposed to all areas of medicine, but Dermatology captivated me with its’ visual recognition of skin problems, and the ability to do surgery on benign and cancerous lesions. The health of the skin often mirrors overall health, and my cosmetic interests grew with my first laser in 1988.

Since then, medical, surgical, and cosmetic Dermatology has changed so much-and patients are well served with our new knowledge and capabilities.
