Everyone deserves prompt and effective care, no matter what skin condition they’re dealing with. My goal is to deliver the best experience AND the best possible results for each patient.
About Me

Laura F. Sandoval, DO, FAOCD, FAAD

Dedicated to Optimal Skin Health

Dr. Laura Sandoval enjoys treating all types of skin conditions, but perhaps the most rewarding aspect for her is diagnosing and treating skin cancers. Fortunately there are many effective treatments available, which gives dermatology providers the opportunity to choose the appropriate option for each individual patient. In terms of skin cancer prevention, Dr. Sandoval talks to every patient she sees about the importance of sun protection—whether they’ve come in for a preventive skin check or not.

Dr. Sandoval loves the beach and enjoys surfing and paddle boarding. She also runs half marathons, and enjoys cooking and baking. She is an animal lover and is always exploring outdoor activities with her Chihuahua.
