“I’m interested in the gut-brain-skin connection, particularly advances in the human microbiome. It impacts medicine and dermatology, much like the human genome project did.”

“I’m thrilled to learn about billable CPT codes for reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM). Support for confocal in the diagnosis and margin evaluation of melanoma, non-melanoma skin cancers, and some inflammatory dermatoses is the wave of the future.”

I’m excited to learn about immunotherapies in dermatology. Recently, a PD-1 inhibitor was approved for advanced cSCC. It’s a much-needed option for patients who are not candidates for surgery or radiation.
