Carol Trakimas, DO, FAAD
Board-Certified Dermatologist
I cannot live without holistically caring for patients and making a significant impact on their lives. The gift of practicing dermatology allows for detecting skin cancers, diagnosing difficult life-altering rashes, and enhancing the appearance of patients. As a result of this, I am grateful to improve the status of patients' health, give them a better outlook on their lives, whilst bolstering their self-esteem.
