Work History





Every part of seeing someone at Westgate Dermatology Center exceeded my expectations! From scheduling an appointment to checking out, all was a snap. The best and most important part, the people! Everyone was very sweet and attentive. I would recommend Westgate Dermatology Center to my friends and family.

…Vanessa and my nurse Amanda were amazing! They made me feel comfortable and welcome. Explain everything, extremely helpful and sweet.

Vanessa was amazing! She took her time and examined everything I was concerned about thoroughly. She gave me solutions to my problems that were effective and affordable.
