For over 30 years, Dr. Billie Phelps (M.D., UCLA School of Medicine) has built her practice and reputation by providing competent and personalized care in a professional and welcoming setting.  She has developed a generation of loyal patients, among them dozens of physicians who comprise a knowledgeable and discerning sector of her practice.  She has a dedicated office staff that has supported her for over 20 years.  The four cornerstones of Dr. Phelps' practice are diagnosis, treatment, continuity of care, and education and prevention.

Diagnosis
Dr. Phelps is a Board Certified Dermatologist and a Board Certified Dermatopathologist.  This training gives her a distinct advantage in detecting suspicious lesions that require a biopsy. Based on the pathology results, Dr. Phelps then determines the best course of treatment.

Treatment
Dr. Phelps is a talented surgeon, achieving excellent clinical and aesthetic surgical results.  She avidly follows the most current research involving new drug therapy and clinical treatments.  She is also mindful of potential drug interactions.  In addition, she offers cosmetic procedures including Juvéderm XC for the correction of facial wrinkles and folds and Botox for the improvement of frown lines of the brow and lateral eyelids.

Continuity of Care
Dr. Phelps maintains 13 years of computerized records of diagnoses mirroring her chart notations. She also keeps a separate file grouping for "high risk "patients who have a history of, or a disposition toward, skin cancer.

Education and Prevention
Dr. Phelps considers patient education an integral part of responsible care, whether it is for acne or cancer of the skin.
