Katy enjoys seeing patients of all ages and is passionate about helping them achieve confidence in their skin. Her practice mainly consists of medical dermatology including full body skin exams and mole checks for skin cancer detection, as well as treatment and management of various dermatologic conditions including acne, psoriasis, eczema, rosacea, warts, hair loss, vitiligo and more.

Katy believes the most important part of patient care is making her patients feel comfortable while building a relationship based on trust and mutual respect.
