Christopher Crosby, MD, PhD, FAAD

Board-certified dermatologist in San Diego

Dr. Crosby’s career path began at Duke University. At Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, he earned both MD and PhD distinctions. Internship at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center followed. Then, during residency in dermatology at Emory University, Dr. Crosby served as Chief Resident. With an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, he completed a rigorous Fellowship (accredited by ACGME) at University of California San Francisco, in Mohs micrographic surgery and procedural dermatology.

Dr. Crosby is one of just a few Fellowship-trained Mohs surgeons in the San Diego area. He takes a special interest in Mohs surgery and reconstructive dermatologic surgery for skin cancers.

  • General dermatology
  • Cosmetic dermatology
  • Laser dermatology
  • Painless mole removal
  • Photodynamic therapy (PDT)
