He subsequently trained in dermatology at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, where he helped create the educational program in dermatologic surgery. He also received extensive training in medical, surgical, and pediatric dermatology at the Los Angeles County Medical Center, Keck Hospital of USC, and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

Every dermatologist has access to the same products and treatments, but it takes a true artist, with skill and empathy, to create beautiful, natural-looking results.

Subjects include high risk skin cancer, lasers for disorders of pigmentation, laser resurfacing, and aesthetic treatments for men.  He is a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology and the American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery, and he is a member of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery and the American College of Mohs Surgery.
