Dear Mosaic Dermatology Patients,
It is with bittersweet emotion that we announce the departure of Dr. Selina Hamill from our practice. She has been a beloved part of our Mosaic family for 2 years and will be missed for her kind demeanor and excellent medical care. Dr. Hamill and her family will be returning to Texas in July of 2020. Her last day at Mosaic Dermatology will be June 30th 2020. Please schedule your telemedicine or in person visit with her prior to those dates if needed.
In her stead, Dr. Vandana Madkan, Dr. Laura Bernet, and Physician Assistant Valerie Stern are available for any skin concerns. Both Dr. Bernet and Valerie take the same insurances as Dr. Hamill. Dr. Madkan is in network for Medicare only. For practice location and hours of practice for each of the above providers, please visit our website (www.mosaicdermatology.com), email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call the office (310-453-3101).
