WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

As a dermatologist, I use a humanistic approach to medicine and focus and listen to the whole patient with my eyes. The skin reflects health and disease in people of all skin types and cultures. Several patients have described me as Sherlock Holmes because I use the skin as clues to solve medical mysteries and complex medical diseases. I was first drawn to dermatology from my teenage acne. However, my training and experience as an internist has taught me to recognize internal diseases in the skin and how to teach this information to other health care providers. I have a special interest in systemic diseases and treatment such as diabetes, thyroid disease, eczema, lymphoma, sarcoidosis, infectious diseases and how they appear in skin of color. I also have an interest in global health and worked at the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in Gabon. Activities outside of work include family, laughter, outdoors, travel, art, music, reading, writing, global cuisine, community engagement, and spirituality.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My current research interests focus around making accurate diagnoses of disease and developing empathy and cultural competency at Duke Health. To do this we need to train health care providers to recognize the skin manifestations of internal disease, particularly in skin of color. We need diversification of the ethnicity and cultures of health care providers as our population diversifies. The use of the arts in training first responders (doctors, police, fire fighters, military) helps to make accurate diagnoses; be more aware of implicit bias; be more empathetic toward patients and staff; and develop cultural competency. I am also interested in research about prescription and non-prescription medications that cause skin reactions that mimic lymphoma and research in wound healing with topical medications.
