John Siebenlist, MD

“Dermatology is intellectually stimulating. I enjoy the investigative work, the surgical challenge. But that isn't enough, I have to have a relationship with my patients. To me, that's what makes my job worthwhile.”

About Me

John Siebenlist, MD

Dr. Siebenlist always wanted to follow his grandfather, grandmother and father into the medical profession. In fact, he can't remember thinking there was anything else, “Medicine is all I wanted to do.”

He pursued his goal with fervor, graduating Summa Cum Laude from Southwestern Adventist University ranking high as an Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society member at Loma Linda University. He then earned a research fellowship with national dermatologic expert Dr. John Koo, studying and publishing work on psoriases treatment.

Hailing from a small Texas town, Dr. Siebenlist is glad to fulfill his lifelong dream among the tight-knit community of San Luis Obispo, “I like being able to see my patients outside the clinic, talking to them, seeing them in their daily live...getting to know them.”

Other interests of Dr. Siebenlist is vocal performance, fly fishing, wakeboarding, snowboarding, basketball and football.
