Dr. Deborah Altemus, DO

Dermatologist

Professional statement

I attended medical school at Midwestern University in Chicago and completed dermatology residency at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio Texas in 1993. Since retirement from military service, I have enjoyed medical and surgical practice in multiple venues. I aim to apply the wholistic principles that were an integral part of my medical school education. I offer 25 years of experience to each individual I care for! In addition to working at Epstein & Tuffanelli Dermatology, I also give care to underserved patients at San Francisco General. In my "off duty" time I enjoy, biking, swimming, hiking with my two Cavaliers. I am an avid cinephile and endeavor to improve my French language skills!

Had to wait over 30 minutes to be seen, doctor admitted she was running behind schedule. Once seen, Dr. Altemus was kind, informative, and helpful.
