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.
