We feel that our most important obligation to our patients is the preservation of their health. The diagnosis and treatment of skin diseases remain our highest priority.

San Francisco and has extensive experience in cosmetic, clinical, and surgical dermatology.  Julie Plante, M.D., is double boarded in Dermatology and Pediatrics and specializes in cosmetic, clinical, and surgical dermatology as well. Our Board Certified Mohs surgeon Susan Amaturo, M.D. is capable of treating advanced skin cancers in our own surgical facility.  Our Nurse Practitioner, Christen Thompson, is a Dermatology Certified Nurse Practitioner and is well versed in both cosmetic and clinical dermatology.


We offer a WALK-IN CLINIC for patients with a single skin problem that cannot wait for a scheduled appointment. 

In our Santa Rosa and Healdsburg offices, we offer WALK-IN CLINIC services for patients with one single skin problem. WALK-IN CLINIC hours vary, for this week's clinic hours, please call our office (707)579-4239.

We ask that you GIVE US A CALL on any day that you are considering coming to the clinic to make sure we are having WALK-IN CLINIC that day.

We do not offer any cosmetic services or screening full body skin exams during the WALK-IN CLINIC.  Please schedule a regular appointment for these needs.
