Pediatric Dermatology

There are just over 200 board certified pediatric dermatologists in the entire country and we are lucky enough to have one of them with our practice!  To be a pediatric dermatologist, you have to complete a general dermatology residency and then go on to a fellowship specializing in pediatric dermatology.  There is even a separate board exam that must be taken after the fellowship to become a board certified pediatric dermatologist in addition to a general dermatologist.

Dr Elizabeth (Lisa) Swanson loves pediatric dermatology and looks forward to helping your child with any skin issues!  Dr Swanson is aware that when a skin condition affects a child, if affects everyone in that family unit.  She is ready and willing to diagnose and treat your child to make sure everyone feels better!
