Dear Patients,
It is with mixed emotions that I am announcing my retirement from Davie Dermatology March 30,2023. I have been blessed to serve you over the years! I opened the practice in 1991 and am thankful for the opportunity to be a part of your healthcare. Most of all, I am appreciative of the friendships formed and trust shared.
It has been an incredible journey and rewarding experience to see Davie Dermatology grow over the years and to be a respected leader in the care of patients. It is a testament to our amazing physicians and physician assistants whose knowledge, skills, morals and ethics are unwavering, as well as the dedicated staff members over the years.

I have full confidence in the providers at Davie Dermatology providing continuous care for you. However, your records can be transferred to another practice upon request.
While you may still see me around the office and town, I am planning on traveling with my husband, enjoying our grandchildren, volunteering, and practicing my golf game in this new chapter of my life.
It has been an honor and pleasure to be a part of your care! Thank you and rest assured, you will be in great hands with the amazing team at Davie Dermatology!
