Biography & Education


The diversity of dermatology is what drew Karen Minzer, M.D., to the field. "I enjoy helping with everything from cancer screenings, to managing serious skin disease to performing surgery, and to encouraging patients to keep their skin as healthy as possible," said Dr. Minzer. 

"I believe it's important to be a good listener and understand my patients' concerns," she said. "I consider myself an advocate for my patients and like to work with them as a team. In doing so, we can work together to form a relationship built on trust and respect."

After earning her medical degree from the University of California San Francisco, Dr. Minzer completed a pediatrics internship at UCSF and a dermatology residency at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland. Dr. Minzer is board certified in dermatology. 

Prior to her medical career, Dr. Minzer was a professional musician, performing in Japan and throughout the United States. In her free time she enjoys hiking, backpacking, and traveling with her husband and three sons.

Great job by entire staff

she provided great information for my daughter (8 years old) and made sure she understood what was happening, her diagnosis, and was comfortable before we left.

My doctor is knowledgeaable an caring. My exams are thorough explainations are understandable. Thats why I have Providence I know I will get the best care.The colonostipy probably saved my life. Dr. [...] caught the mole an sent me to Dr. Minzer to remove small cancer. Thank for your great care.

Got appointment within 1 day, due to cancellation, otherwise it would have been a 4-5 weeks for appointment

I asked for a complete skin exam to see if there were any problems. Dr. Minzer-Conzetti gave a nearly full exam, but I had to ask her to look at a small area of my skin that she did not look at.

Thorough, attentive. Explained procedure and expected outcome. Printed reference docs to use at home.

my experience was very good

She is the second dermatologist I've been this year and still they have not figured out my rash problem. I'm still suffering. Also, during my visit Dr. was distracted by another patient and left me waiting for 15+ minutes.
