My Story

About one doctor, Wife and mother Pursuing her passion for skin and total body health.

IN MY BUSY PRACTICE I SEE PATIENT’S ONE-ON-ONE, AND NOW I’M TAKING MY EXPERTISE FOR SKIN AND HEALTH ONLINE…

To You!

Hi!

I’m Dr. Angela Brimhall

In short, I’m a board-certified dermatologist and Mohs skin cancer surgeon, also known as TheHolisticDerm from the popular Tiktok videos offering skin advice in short, entertaining, easily digestible segments. As a working mom of 5, doctor, wife and health expert, I share relatable life and how skin and total body health work together for me, my patients and hopefully soon, for you too!

My Journey:

The thought of becoming a doctor never entered my mind growing up. There are no physicians in my family, and when I was young, I was not expected to do anything more than get married and keep house. In high school, I became fascinated with science and how it constantly pushed the human frontier. My love for people led me initially to psychology and then science propelled me to medicine. I applied to medical school not knowing what I was getting into, but what I lacked in exposure I made up for in heart. I loved all my subjects and studied efficiently so I could care for my 2 year old daughter while becoming a well rounded doctor. I was surprised to find myself near the top of my class and when I learned that there were over 1,500 distinct skin diseases that needed to be diagnosed and treated, I was smitten with dermatology.

We chose to have our second child during my 3rd year of medical school, even though my dean counseled that if I had a baby I would fail out and never get a residency. Instead of failing out, I earned a masters degree in clinical research in addition to my medical degree and collaborated with top researchers to author and present multiple journal articles on topics including psoriasis. Our third child was born while I was serving as the chief resident during the final year of my Dermatology residency at University Hospitals, in Cleveland, OH. Following my residency, I moved across the country, started practicing general and surgical dermatology, became a Board Certified Dermatologist, a Fellow of the American Osteopathic College of Dermatology, and a Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology. In 2014, my passion for diagnosing and treating skin cancer led me to become a Fellow of The American Society for Mohs Surgery and obtain a Board Certificate of Added Qualification in Mohs Micrographic Surgery. Shortly after, our fourth and fifth children were born two years apart while I continued to treat my patients and friends further refining my diagnostic and surgical expertise.

I have practiced dermatology for over 15 years. During this time, I have helped and held space for people at their most vulnerable and triumphant times. This is especially fulfilling for me and my hope is I can now help you in a similar way.

Some of the many reviews and comments from my followers

Doctor Brimhall is wonderful. It was my first time meeting with her for a mole/skin check. She was very thorough, and although the appointment was quick, she paid great attention to my questions and concerns during the visit. She explained how to use certain medications she was going to prescribe and made me feel important and worth her time. Her medical assistant was super nice as well and took time to even write some instructions down for me so I wouldn’t forget. I’d highly recommend Doctor Brimhall!

I just found out I have SCC…all because your Tiktoks educated me on a lesion that wasn’t healing.

Doctor, I am so happy with you. Honestly. I told you  I had skin cancer last year and you remind me every day to be careful. Thank you so much.

Please keep sharing these types of videos. My 50 year old mumma had a merkel cell carcinoma removed last year. She also had BCC and others removed.

These videos prompted my whole family to get checked I was fine as was my husband but my mom had basal cell!
