"My father is also a doctor. When I was 6 or 7, I would carry his big black doctor’s bag for him on house calls. I thought there was magic in that bag because he made people smile and feel better. I still carry that sense of wonder with me as I see patients."
Dr. Carp’s distinguished track record includes serving four years as Chief of Dermatology for a prominent California medical group, supervising nine dermatologists, two Mohs surgeons and an ancillary staff of five; and receiving the Outstanding Clinical Dermatologist Merit award for three consecutive years.
Dr. Carp has special interest in helping patients take more control over their own health, by educating them about how skin disease is related to, and often a sign of, internal medical problems.
