Erin Allen, M.D., appreciates the long-term relationships she establishes with her patients. “I learn something from my patients every day, whether it’s a new recipe, a local event or how to be a better physician,” she says. She describes her philosophy of care as being a team approach, noting, “The patient needs to feel comfortable and understand the diagnosis and how we’ll fix it together.”
Dr. Allen is a board-certified dermatologist who earned her medical degree from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine. She completed her dermatology residency and her fellowship in Mohs Micrographic Surgery at Saint Louis University in Missouri, the fellowship accredited by the American College of Mohs Surgery.
Having grown up on a farm outside of Lawrence, Kan., Dr. Allen is an avid outdoorswoman and animal lover. Away from the office, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Andrew, exploring Portland.
