So honored

Wednesday, May 27th, 2015

Thank you to Dr. Babak Azzizadeh and the ENT/Facial Plastics community for inviting me to their joint UCLA/USC Facial Plastics Journal Club. I was in the company of some of the most thoughtful and talented facial plastic and oculoplastic surgeons in our greater Los Angeles community and their residents and fellows. We had a lively discussion of several articles pertaining to Mohs reconstruction and wrinkle fillers while enjoying a great steak dinner and wine.

Clothes are definitely the best protection.

Enjoy the sunset and imagine yourself drinking a coconut rum drink with cool gentle breezes…

It’s often not the mole or lesion the patient is worried about. Also consider giving to Sun Safety For Kids, a 501c3 non-profit organization of which I am a board member.
