Julia Kwan, M.D., was born and raised in Southern California. After attending medical school in New York, she served eleven years in the Navy. She was the general medical officer on an amphibious warship, accompanying it from New Orleans through the Panama Canal to its homeport of San Diego. After four years in Pearl Harbor as the staff dermatologist, she has returned home to the South Bay.
Dr. Kwan’s main focus is medical dermatology, where she feels she can best help patients manage their skin conditions.
A fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, she also has a strong interest in academics. She has published more than a dozen articles in peer-reviewed Dermatology, Orthopedics, Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, and Trauma Surgery journals.
In her spare time, she enjoys photography, cooking, hiking, and spending time with her husband and daughter.
