Coastal Dermatology Joins the West Dermatology Network

West Dermatology is happy to announce the addition of Coastal Dermatology Medical and Cosmetic Center in Camarillo, Calif. to our growing network of providers. We are excited to further expand our presence in Ventura County and in Southern California with this best-in-class team.

Coastal Dermatology is led by Ross S. Kaplan, MD, a board certified dermatologist, who focuses on skin cancer treatment. Dr. Kaplan earned his MD from UCLA in 1994 and then received dermatology training at the University of California at Irvine. He also completed a Howard Hughes Fellowship in laser research as part of a Harvard program at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. Dr. Kaplan was voted the top dermatologist in Ventura County for six consecutive years by a reader's poll in the Ventura County Reporter.

Assisting Dr. Kaplan is long-time certified Family Nurse Practitioner Julie McCardell. Ms. McCardell earned her Master’s Degree in Nursing from UCLA, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude. Julie is certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. She is skilled in medical dermatology and a wide variety of cosmetic procedures.

The practice also includes Robert Lum, MD. Dr. Lum is a Radiation Oncologist in Camarillo CA. He received his medical degree from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and has been in practice for more than 20 years.

West Dermatology is continuing to expand throughout Arizona, California and Nevada. We are actively recruiting best-in-class dermatologists and established dermatology groups. We seek providers who have a demonstrated track record of excellence in serving their patients and who embrace our culture of integrity, teamwork and transparency.
