As a native Floridian, Carly is all too aware of the effect the sun’s rays have on the skin. While at Nova Southeastern she completed two clinical rotations in dermatology, and found her passion in skin cancers and skin care. She has been working as a physician assistant in dermatology ever since. Carly enjoys skiing, camping, biking, reading, cooking (but not cleaning).
“Technically, the practice of dermatology is ‘skin deep’, but a patient’s care should be all-encompassing of body, mind, and spirit. Every patient deserves to be treated with compassion and respect, and I love making a personal connection with each patient I treat.”

Josh enjoys watching movies, spending time with family and friends, and staying active through pickleball and weightlifting.
“Dermatology is much more than just taking care of skin. With every encounter, there is a patient who is dealing with a concern and it should be addressed and treated with the utmost care. I always tailor my approach to each person, because I believe personalized medicine is necessary to achieve optimal results.”
