Michelle Benes, started her career in Dermatology 14 years ago. She obtained her Degree in Medical Assisting and Radiology in 2003, in Anaheim CA. She fell in love with Dermatology while searching for the right job as a Radiological Technologist. She eventually stopped looking because she realized that she was right where she belonged. Her medical assisting experience varies from General dermatology, MOHs Micrographic Surgery, Endovenous Ablation, Sclerotherapy, Laser surgery and Cosmetic surgery. Although she loves all things Dermatology, she especially enjoys surgical Dermatology and helping patients understand their personal skin care needs. She has been with KDA since Fall of 2014 starting as a receptionist and has worked her way into the back office. She is thrilled to be assisting Jamie Kersenbrock, FNP in clinic as Jamie’s medical assistant.
