Skin Cancer Specialist Joins Our Sonoma County Dermatology Practice

skin cancer specialist for skin cancer and cosmetic surgeon santa rosaI’m pleased to announce that skin care specialist Dr. Bishr Al Dabagh has joined us here in our Sebastopol office. A board-certified dermatologist and dermatologic surgeon, Dr. Al Dabagh has advanced fellowship training from UCSF in skin cancer detection and Mohs surgery for cancer treatment.

His Approach to Your Skin Health

Dr. Al Dabagh began seeing patients in our office this July. His thoroughness and expertise are being put to great use already because many of our patients are at higher than average risk for skin cancer. Sun damage is the price we pay for our active outdoor lifestyle here in Sonoma County and it means that top quality dermatologic care is a necessity.

I’m thrilled to have this wonderful skin cancer specialist join us because, like our other doctors, Dr. Al Dabagh offers a holistic approach to skin health. Fitness and total wellness are such a high priority to him that in his “free” time he is also a personal fitness trainer. In his medical practice, he likes to take the time to educate patients about lifestyle and fitness choices that will make positive changes on their skin health.

Get to Know Dr. Al Dabagh

Dr. Al Dabagh grew up in Michigan, where his family still lives. His father is a doctor and inspired him to enter into a medical career.

He attended the University of Michigan’s Honors Scholar Program where he graduated with three degrees. He also had the honor to be selected as his class’s student commencement speaker. He went on to receive his medical training at Case Western Reserve University where he graduated at the top of his class.

Next, he completed his dermatology residency at Duke University Medical Center. Following Duke, Dr. Al Dabagh went on to receive advanced sub-specialty training in procedural dermatology at the University of California San Francisco’s Dermatologic Surgery and Laser Center with a specific focus on diagnosis and treatment of skin cancers, Mohs micrographic surgery, reconstruction, and cosmetic procedures. Dr. Al Dabagh’s academic career has been distinguished by the receipt of numerous honors and awards.
