Cosmetic Dermatology of Orange County Joins the West Dermatology Network

The West Dermatology family is delighted to announce that we are expanding our footprint in Orange County with the addition of Cosmetic Dermatology of Orange County, which provides medical, surgical and cosmetic services as well as laser treatments to patients from locations in Anaheim Hills and Huntington Beach, Calif.

Cosmetic Dermatology is led by Cheryl L. Effron, M.D., a board certified dermatologist who has administered advanced skincare in California for more than 39 years. After graduating from Stanford University, Phi Beta Kappa, and the University of Southern California’s Keck School of Medicine, Dr. Effron completed a dermatology residency at Affiliated Hospitals, Veterans Administration Hospital and University of California at Irvine. She is a Fellow of the American Board of Dermatology and the American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgeries (ASLMS).

Dr. Effron is joined by Jeffrey Lander, MD, Ph.D., who is a board certified dermatologist and Mohs surgeon. Dr. Lander is a native of Southern California who received his Ph.D. in 1998 in Biological Sciences at the University of California at Irvine before completing his medical school and dermatology residency in 2006 at the University of Minnesota. He completed an additional fellowship in Mohs, Micrographic Surgery and Cutaneous Oncology in 2007. Dr. Lander is a Diplomate of the American Board of Dermatology and a Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology.

The practice also includes Sandra Fantauzzi, MPAS, PA-C, who is a Certified Physician Assistant. Ms. Fantauzzi graduated from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, with a bachelor’s degree in Education and Pre-med Studies, and then attended Western University of Health Sciences Physician Assistant Program in Pomona, Calif., to obtain her Masters in Physician Assistant Studies. She is experienced in medical and surgical dermatology as well working with lasers.

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