Welcome to Dermatology Surgical & Medical Group

Dermatologist Santa Cruz, CA

We are a full service dermatology group practicing in the Santa Cruz County area since the early 1960's. Our practice prides itself on being at the forefront of medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology. Our primary goal is helping you achieve and maintain healthy skin – for life!

The skin is the body’s largest organ, and most of us have concerns regarding our skin. Whether you are concerned about a new or changing mole, have some discomfort related to the skin, or just want to improve the appearance of your skin, we can help. We provide diagnosis and treatment for a range of skin and nail conditions, and we offer medical and surgical therapies as well as phototherapy laser treatments.

We provide a full range of esthetic options both in our main office and at our medically supervised esthetic center, DERM-essence. All of our service providers are up-to-date on the best practices to keep your skin healthy and looking its best. We provide laser and IPL treatments for hair removal and skin rejuvenation, as well as a variety of dermal fillers, such as Restylane, Juvederm, etc. to treat wrinkles, and Botox to reduce future wrinkles from forming.

Dear Patients,

We hope that you and your loved ones are staying well during the Covid-19 public health emergency. As always, our first priority is your health and safety and that of our employees.

We are still here to serve you. Our three Board-certified Dermatologists, Dr. Morgan Magid, Dr. Andrew Calciano, and Dr. Molly Shields, are all available, and also our Physician Assistant, Sharon Kluger, PA-C. Some patients can be seen via video conference tele-medicine, and we are seeing patients in our office as well. If you have a history of skin cancer of any type, we recommend that you not defer your regular skin checks.
