In Dr. LaRaia's Own Words. . .

Dr. Cheryl Gray

I came to medicine because of my interest in the ever-evolving science of medicine and my desire to help people. I have been fortunate to receive extensive training in both Dermatology and in Internal Medicine, and I believe that this training provides me not only with insights and skills to care for patients with simple and complex skin conditions, but also an understanding of how their skin disease relates to their overall health. I look forward to getting to know each new patient who walks into my office as well as the opportunity to work together to improve each patient's health.
