After graduation Leah chose to specialize in dermatology and aesthetics. Professional opportunity took her to Dallas, where she joined a nationally respected medical & cosmetic dermatology practice. After spending 4 years out of state, she returned home to Michigan and joined us at Eastside Skin Care and Laser Center.
