Welcome to Our Practice

Welcome! Since 1968, Santa Monica Dermatology Group has been providing the best dermatological care for patients in the western Los Angeles area. We pride ourselves in a traditional approach to the patient-physician experience. Doctors Adriana Schmidt, Jason Litak, Lauren Reager, Paul Smith, Gregory Colman, and Suzanne Mednik are experienced, caring and up-to-date on the latest in evidence-based medicine and the newest advancements in medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology. All of our staff is dedicated to your comfort and prompt attention. We have a particular interest in the early detection and treatment of melanoma and other skin cancers and offer MOHS surgery, which provides the highest surgical cure rate for non-melanoma skin cancer.

Our goal is to help you maintain healthy, beautiful skin through our services and treatments, including some of the following:

You’ll find valuable information on our web site about skin problems, diagnoses, and treatments. We believe informed patients are better prepared to make decisions about their health and well being. We encourage you to review this information and discuss it with your doctor at the time of your visit.

To Our Patients at Santa Monica Dermatology Group:

We hope that this message finds you well, along with your loved ones. With guidance from the local government and medical community, we are now slowly reopening our office. Our phones are back on (310-829-4484), and someone will be able to schedule an appointment for you.

In order to ensure the safety of our patients, our staff, and the doctors, we have instituted the following measures:

1. We plan to operate at less than half capacity so as to ensure adequate social distancing. Our staff will be cleaning the examination rooms and door handles between each patient visit.

2. Patients must come to their appointment wearing a mask. Our staff will be wearing masks at all times and gloves will be worn for all patient contact.

3. We will require that patients stand at least 6 feet apart during check in / check out and while in the waiting room. We ask that all patients come to their appointments alone; only caretakers or a minor patient's parent are permitted to accompany patients into our office.
