About Me

Judith Romero, M.D., FAAD

Dr. Judith Romero, M.D, FAAD, joins West Dermatology and Partners with an extensive background in dermatology. Her education started with a bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry and Sociology from Columbia College, followed by a Research Assistant position at Rockefeller University and Predoctoral Melanoma Fellowship at NYU Department of Dermatology. Dr. Romero then went on to pursue an M.D. at Harvard Medical School, followed by an internship at Mass General Hospital in Massachusetts and a residency in the Department of Dermatology at the University of Michigan.

Dr. Romero knew that she wanted to be a doctor since high school, but it was her year-long research with melanoma that created her passion for dermatology. During that time, she worked closely with a mentor who helped her learn more about the significance of skin health. She knew she wanted to help people understand the importance of skin health, so she worked diligently to work closely with the dermatology field.

Dr. Romero’s professional career is heavily focused on dermatology. She started working with Dermatology Associates for several years before moving on to become the sole owner and physician of Dermatology and Cosmetic Care and also opened another practice, California Skin Institute.

Throughout her career, Dr. Romero has been committed to building relationships with patients so that each person feels heard and respected. She believes that in order to provide the best care possible that it is important to communicate with patients as effectively as possible. She
prides herself in providing exceptional medical care and takes time to educate patients about the importance of daily skincare, including proper cleaning, moisturizing, and high-quality sunscreen. These simple tips make a big difference in the long run!
