I’ve worked very diligently and deliberately to try to re-imagine the “doctor’s visit” to make it more experiential and ‘fun’ rather than intimidating and sterile.

No Ordinary
Doctor's Visit

At Liora, we are redefining the patient/doctor experience by creating a more holistic, non-intimidating experience that truly is experiential and memorable. At Liora, we start with the skin but treat the whole person, so our patients can truly let their inner light shine in every aspect of their lives.

We truly believe everyone should feel welcome and excited to see their dermatologist. It can be intimidating to be vulnerable, oftentimes naked, showing someone your outermost physical “flaws”. My personality is such that there is zero judgment and only joy in getting to the “best skin of your life”. We want to take care of you and all your besties because you will feel that comfortable and excited to be part of the Liora family.
