Meet Dr. Tracey

About Dr. Tracey

Dr. Tracey is a medical and procedural dermatologist practicing at the Apex Dermatology Westlake office. She grew up in New York and Connecticut and then obtained her Bachelor of Arts from the University of California, Berkeley. Her major was in Art, focusing primarily on painting and sculpture. Art continues to be a hobby, and her aesthetic sense and technical training enhance her interest and expertise in procedural and cosmetic dermatology.

After completing her undergraduate degree, Dr. Tracey completed both her premedical courses and medical school at the University of Pennsylvania, where she did research on dermatologic findings in cancer patients. Her dermatology residency at the Cleveland Clinic provided premier training in medical, pediatric, procedural, cosmetic, and laser dermatology. During residency, she researched high-risk skin cancer, authored a book chapter on melanoma, and led the department’s free clinic and community outreach.

Dr. Tracey values clear communication with patients, which has fueled her interest in the intersection between media and public health. She has interned at the Philadelphia public radio show The Pulse, researching and producing stories on health and medicine, spent a year working as a medical producer at the Dr. Oz Show, has authored many healthcare articles and was a regular guest on the podcast, Dermatology Weekly.

Dr. Tracey sees adult and pediatric patients for all aspects of dermatology and has particular interests in aesthetic dermatology and skin cancer.
