Four Bridges Dermatology & Cosmetics
as a Team
When Dr. Deanna Brown reflects on nearly a decade of being a dermatologist, a few special moments stick out. “One of the happiest moments of my career was when I opened Four Bridges Dermatology,” she says. “It was the product of many years of hard work and delayed gratification.” Part of what makes Four Bridges Dermatology special, in Dr. Brown’s opinion, is that it is owned by three board-certified, female doctors. In addition to the doctors is a friendly and talented support staff that helps the office run like a well-oiled machine. “My practice would not exist without my staff! Every team member performs a crucial role to keep the schedule flowing and keep patients happy,” Dr. Brown explains. “I love working with this team and am so proud of how far we’ve come in just one year.”
