Rachel began her nursing career working in the Surgical Trauma Burn Intensive Care Unit at the University of Virginia. Her experience with burn patients, lead her to pursue a career in dermatology. She is accepting new patients at our office, focusing on diseases such as psoriasis and acne and performing general skin exams. With every encounter, she assesses the unique and individual needs of each patient. This drives her to create a plan of care together with the patient to meet the needs of all involved.
