Dr. Lisa Garner, FAAD, received her Bachelor of Science, magna cum laude, in Pharmacy from the University of Houston and her Doctor of Medicine from Baylor College of Medicine. Dr. Garner completed an internship in internal medicine and a residency in dermatology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School and is board certified in dermatology.
Dr. Garner has worked with many professional dermatology societies including serving as vice-president of the American Academy of Dermatology. She is a former president of the Women’s Dermatologic Society, has held multiple leadership positions with the Texas Dermatology Society and supports the Dermatology Foundation philanthropic organization.
After working in a solo private practice in Garland, Texas for many years, Dr. Garner chose to join the PHDermatology group in Florida in order to be closer to the beach. She is always careful to avoid midday sun and protect her skin, but has found the Florida lifestyle in Clearwater to be exactly what she hoped for. In her free time, Dr. Garner loves to travel to exotic and adventurous places. Most recently you could find her kayaking among the glaciers in Antarctica.
Dr. Garner has a special interest in allergic contact dermatitis with extensive knowledge and experience in customized patch testing. She is a member of the American Contact Dermatitis Society, the premier organization cultivating advancements in the diagnosis and care of dermatitis. We are very excited to offer this highly specialized service to the Clearwater, FL location.
