Our mission in the Division of Dermatology is to serve as an educational resource to the LSU Health Shreveport Department of Medicine, School of Medicine, and the School of Allied Health Professions in expanding the clinical acumen of our providers at the resident and student level in diagnosing and managing skin disease and correlating internal disease with its cutaneous manifestations.

Further, we aim to be a resource to the community in referrals for complex skin disease, surgical management of skin malignancy, as well as the first providers in north Louisiana to accept Medicaid and allow access to dermatologic care across our community.

Finally, we hope to establish a premier dermatologic presence in this institution which will foster research, clinical trials, and innovation. Our top priorities will be meeting the health care needs of our patients and educational needs of our trainees so that they have everything they need to practice confidently upon graduation.
