Our History

Over 45 Years of Combined Medical Experience

In July of 2017 West Dermatology La Jolla/UTC opened its doors to serve the greater San Diego community. Our dermatology team is led by Drs. Stacy Tompkins, Shane Hamman, and Brook Brouha, and together they bring over 45 years of experience, many of which have been spent in high-level teaching positions. It’s this commitment to medical advancement and learning that makes our providers unique and well positioned to be your skin care specialists and advisers.
The La Jolla/UTC clinic is run by our office manager Ashley, who joined the West Dermatology team in 2016. She is dedicated to the growth and expansion of West Dermatology and leads the team at the Skin Cancer Center. New to San Diego, she and her six-year-old son fill up their days with hiking and exploring the beautiful San Diego coastline. Reaching out and connecting with others is what Ashley strives for most. It is this connection that allows the cohesive team at West Dermatology to focus exclusively on you. We look forward to continuously exceeding your expectations and providing you with extensive care for years to come.
