Clinical Interests
My clinical interests include multidisciplinary care of adolescents and adults with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), transgender youth, procedural dermatology, vascular malformations, skin of color and global health. My background in Pediatrics and Dermatology allows me empathize with my patients so that they can feel comfortable in challenging clinical settings. I am trilingual (English, Spanish and French) and welcome our diverse patient population using the language of their choice. I practice medical and cosmetic dermatology. I perform laser hair removal for excess hair and diverse procedural modalities to treat acne scarring.
