Dr. Cynthia Bailey is a Board Certified Dermatologist who began her small solo dermatology practice in Northern California in 1991. She is now the Director and Founder of Advanced Skin Care and Dermatology Physicians, Inc, a dermatology medical practice offering a full range of state of the art surgical, medical and aesthetic dermatology treatments.
She is also Founder and writer of DrBaileySkinCare.com., a web site dedicated to providing professional quality skin health and skin care information on the web. Her practical skin care information and advice can be found on her web site and blog, across the web and in numerous international print publications such as USA Today, Glamor, Self, Health, U.S. News and World Report, as well as on Fox Television and other media outlets.
Dr. Bailey is first and foremost a clinician with a pragmatic approach to care and a heavy emphasis on skin health education. Her information and advice is a blend of experience from her 25+ years of dermatology practice, continued learning as a 35+ year student of science, her natural health bias, and her overriding concern for the well-being of others as a mother, sister, daughter, friend and wife.
Dr. Bailey received her dermatology training at the University of California at San Diego where she also conducted research on skin photobiology, and was on the clinical teaching faculty. After moving to Northern California she was again on the clinical teaching faculty of the UCSF Family Medicine program in her home town until choosing to dedicate all her non-practice time to the service of her local and state medical societies. She is a Past President of the Sonoma County Medical Association, and has been both a Delegate and a Trustee for the California Medical Association. She also served on numerous committees for those organizations and for the American Academy of Dermatology.
Locally she has served on the Board of many non-profit medical organizations. In response to unique instability in her community’s health care marketplace she co-founded a 3 year project that included several high profile Health Care Summits and numerous working groups to address the challenges. Key collaborative community projects were created that continue to today, and that have significantly enhanced practical aspects of health care in Sonoma County.
Today, Dr. Bailey divides her professional focus between her full time dermatology practice and writing about skin health for her web site and blog. Her outside interests include vegetable and flower gardening, yoga, and her family, friends and dog.
