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.

Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

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.

Providence Health & Services Patient

The provider and her staff are awesome, but there is some disconnect with communication in the back-end office part as far as lab orders go. I think part of it is that they are all so busy. Sometimes it takes a really long time just to talk to someone on the phone.
Providence Health & Services Patient

Very knowledgable, kind and friendly. I would have like just more details in the AVS on how to take the prescribed medication.
