Dr. Gilchrist has solid foundational training in conventional Western medicine, but she also embraces holistic, integrative approach to skin wellness and disease prevention, including individualized dietary recommendations, mindfulness practices, and natural treatment options.

She specializes in providing holistic and individualized dermatologic care with an emphasis on prevention.  She enjoys her relationship as an educator and takes the time to ensure that each patient understands every important aspect of his or her skin condition and treatment plan.

Dr. Gilchrist believes that small changes ripple out into large results, both for your skin and for the environment.  For that reason, she chooses to keep her office as eco-friendly as possible.
