This comprehensive dermatology practice takes a holistic and integrative approach, combining medical dermatology, Ayurveda, and genetic knowledge to develop individualized treatment plans for patients with various skin ailments.

Dr. Chi believes that skin health is influenced by both internal and external factors. To achieve optimal skin health and appearance, she emphasizes the importance of proper nutrition, hydration, regular outdoor exercise, and sufficient sleep. Protecting the skin from harmful UV radiation is also crucial, and she recommends using mineral sun protection, wearing protective clothing, and seeking shade.
Stress can have a negative impact on skin health, and Dr. Chi encourages mind-body techniques like meditation, massage, and bodywork to restore balance. As individuals age, their skin may undergo changes that require specialized care. Dr. Chi combines her expertise as a board-certified Dermatologist with her knowledge of genetics and pharmacology to maintain skin health and vibrancy in patients of all ages.
