Diana Castanon, MD, FAAD
Board-Certified: American Board of Dermatology
Dedicated to informed, effective and compassionate care.
“One of the aspects about dermatology that I found interesting — and still appreciate today — is that I get to be a true diagnostician. I have always enjoyed science, particularly the process of getting informed, investigating and finding conclusions. Dermatology is that same process, from medical history to physical exam and testing to an accurate diagnosis… which is the key to effective, appropriate and timely treatment.
“The commitment I make each day is to empower every person who trusts me with the care of their skin problem. I strive to partner with you, provide you with complete and understandable information and always protect your interests like I would my own family members.”
