Biography

Michelle Bonta, M.D., greets all her patients with a smile because she feels it is a privilege to take care of people. “I want my patients to feel that they can approach me with any concern, no matter how minute it may seem to them,” she says. “If something about their skin is bothering them, I want to know about it.”

After graduating with a bachelor of arts degree in molecular biophysics and biochemistry from Yale University, Dr. Bonta earned her medical degree from Harvard Medical School in Boston, Mass. She completed her residency in dermatology at Oregon Health & Science University.

Born in Jamaica, West Indies, Dr. Bonta enjoys spending time with her husband and daughters when away from her medical practice. Her favorite activities include hiking, watching movies, decorating and cultivating orchids.
