Our Care Philosophy

We believe in the power of healthy. At Alaska Center for Dermatology, we understand that getting outdoors to enjoy the extraordinary beauty of Alaska is essential for a person’s well-being.

Maintaining an active outdoor lifestyle can pose serious threats to otherwise healthy skin because of the additional exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation and the harsh winter conditions in Alaska. That’s why we provide comprehensive, and highly personalized care for patients of all ages and skin types.

A unique aspect of our practice is that we provide continuous care across various areas, from Medical Dermatology and Mohs Skin Cancer Surgery to Pediatric Dermatology and Cosmetic Dermatology. This allows us to provide the highest-possible-quality Dermatology care under the purview of one medical practice.

Our entire team at Alaska Center for Dermatology focuses on patient care — from our Board-Certified Dermatology Providers, our Physician Assistants to our support staff. Our goal is to provide patients of all ages with the best possible skin care treatments in a pleasing, patient-friendly environment. We strive to make your visit to our location as comfortable as possible by treating you as more than a patient; we treat you like family.We often hear our patients say, “They are genuinely interested in my health”. We believe this is because we focus on showing care with every interaction. As a result, our patients experience a truly considerate and professional approach to healthcare.

At Alaska Center for Dermatology, we take patient satisfaction seriously. We take the time to develop relationships with our patients, and they trust in our ability to educate, counsel, and advise them. We also thoughtfully and clearly explain options and address your concerns, so you feel informed prior to moving forward with any treatment or procedure.

And when it comes to Cosmetic Dermatology needs, we believe in enhancing your beauty…not altering it.

Trust the health of your skin to our dedicated, highly skilled, and compassionate Providers. Every day we strive to provide excellent patient-centered skincare in a comfortable, welcoming setting. Our goal is to exceed your expectations, whether you’re visiting us for a skin condition, skin cancer treatments, or laser treatments.

Anchorage is the gateway to Alaska adventure. Located within Denaʼina Ełnena, on the traditional homelands of the Dena’ina Athabascan people and the Native Village of Eklutna, the city combines wild Alaska beauty, convenient urban comforts, mesmerizing outdoor spaces, and captivating arts and culture. Find sparkling glaciers, abundant wildlife, vast parks and trails, and dazzling northern lights.


Anchorage is the place where young spirits and adventurous souls come to play. Hike a mountain trail under the midnight sun. Paddle turquoise waterways through a vast state park. Learn about incredible Indigenous cultures. Alaska activities and attractions include legendary wildlife, spectacular mountain vistas, fascinating museums and cultural centers, icy blue glaciers, and more. Metropolitan amenities mix with unrivaled natural splendor to make Anchorage an unforgettable destination.


A visit to Anchorage is always an adventure, and it’s no wonder: Alaska’s largest city features 60 glaciers within 50 miles of downtown, an urban salmon stream teeming with wild king salmon every summer, six surrounding mountain ranges, 300 miles of wilderness trails, and one of the largest state parks in the country sprawling across the eastern edge of town. Spend a day dog sledding or hiking across an icy glacier. Watch for abundant wildlife. Take off on a flightseeing tour to Denali. Explore a winding bike path along the Cook Inlet coast. Browse eye-catching public art, and learn about the area’s Dena’ina Athabascan history and culture. When night falls, enjoy local dining with a rooftop view, catch a show in a public park, or view the northern lights mid-August through April. Anchorage makes it easy to spend time outside, whether you want to soak up the city scene or experience some of Alaska’s most iconic wilderness adventures.


The Chugach Mountains create more than a dramatic skyline for Anchorage. They are a playground for outdoor enthusiasts. Combined, Chugach State Park and Chugach National Forest are home to some of the most accessible outdoor adventures in the state. Best of all, some of the top trailheads and access points are just 20 minutes from downtown.

Chugach State Park is one of the largest state parks in the nation. To the east of that, Chugach National Forest is the second-largest national forest in the U.S. Together they comprise more than 9,000 square miles of hiking, rafting, biking, ATVing, kayaking, and fishing. The most frequently climbed mountain in Alaska, most popular trailheads, and more than 60 of the state’s most accessible glaciers are all found in the Chugach.

With such a massive range, there are plenty of access points. And ways to enjoy it are as varied as the Chugach landscape. Head north for kayaking on a glacial lake or alpine berry picking. A trip south reveals countless hiking trails tucked into the mountains and amazing glaciers.
