Nothing compares to the joys of desert living, but the dry, sunny climate can wreak havoc on your skin. A trusted and experienced dermatologist is your ideal partner to protect your skin and help you achieve your skin health goals.

Founded in 1962 by Dr. J. Robert West, West Dermatology opened its first desert office in Palm Springs more than 20 years ago. With a second location in Rancho Mirage and multiple locations across California, Arizona, and Nevada, West Dermatology is committed to providing comprehensive dermatology services and education to patients so they can have “Healthy Skin for Life™.”

Our team of board-certified dermatologists includes Dr. Pamela Broska, Dr. James O’Connell, and Dr. Ronald Shiell. They practice alongside a talented group of certified physician assistants that include Matthew Smith, MPA-C; Diana Garza, PA-C; Roger Bellamy, MPAP-PA; and Christine Fernandez, MHS, PA-C. Our industry-leading team provides comprehensive dermatologic services and prioritizes clinical outcomes and patient experience above all else.

Locally trained in California, Dr. Broska and Dr. O’Connell trained at UC Irvine and 
Dr. Shiell trained at UC San Francisco.

Whether you are struggling with acne, eczema, psoriasis, or skin cancer, our team is ready to care for your skin health. Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States — one in five Americans will develop skin cancer by the age of 70. Our providers diagnose and treat all forms of skin cancer and Drs. Broska and Shiell perform multiple Mohs procedures each week. As your partner in skincare, we do full-body skin exams that include hair and nails.

As people age, our skin begins to lose some of its luster and elasticity. Our cosmetic dermatologists are here for those patients interested in cosmetic services. We use some of the most advanced treatments available. These include a variety of services like microneedling, Botox, fillers, and lasers. And we carry medical-grade skincare products in our clinics that are proven to be effective for addressing skincare concerns.

We invite you to stop by our location in Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage to meet our team and experience what makes West Dermatology so special.
