About Cynthia S. Mates, MD
I grew up in Seattle, Washington, but became a Californian through my education at University of California, San Diego, and University of California, Davis School of Medicine. I chose to become a dermatologist from an early point in my career and have not regretted it in the least. Dermatology is an exciting specialty that challenges me every day with a diversity of interesting skin conditions and patients. Having trained in dermatology at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan, I have extensive experience in phototherapy and interest in treating ethnic skin of many types, in addition to general dermatologic conditions and skin cancer. I have taught future dermatologists on staff at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, and take pride in keeping myself current with developments within my specialty.
