Dr. Carie Chui

Carie T. Chui, M.D.An opportunity to work on skin cancer research projects during medical school piqued Dr. Carie Chui's interest in dermatology. With that, the passion began, and today she is one of the leading dermatologists in San Mateo and the Bay Area. Dr. Chui, who joined Allura Skin & Laser Center more than 10 years ago, specializes in skin cancer treatment, including Mohs micrographic surgery.

"I enjoy the diverse challenges I see daily, both medical and procedural," Dr. Chui says, "and value the trust that patients have in my abilities to help them address their concerns."

Patients of all ages looking for a dermatologist come to our practice from Burlingame, Palo Alto, and surrounding areas to have Dr. Chui provide skin care. At our San Mateo center, you can meet with Dr. Chui or another of our board-certified dermatologists. Request an appointment online, or call our office at (650) 344-1121.

Education & Training

Dr. Chui is a board-certified dermatologist who has served as a clinical instructor at both Stanford University and the University of California, San Francisco, teaching Mohs and dermatologic surgery to both residents and fellows. She earned her medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine in Waco, Texas before completing a dermatology residency at Stanford.

After that, she received extensive training in multiple surgical techniques. She completed a fellowship in laser surgery, cosmetic surgery, Mohs micrographic surgery, and reconstruction at UCSF's dermatology department.

Clinical Interests

Dr. Chui's expertise in skin cancer prevention and treatment reflects years of training and experience. She is an associate member of the American College of Mohs Micrographic Surgery (ACMS), an exclusive organization that requires members to complete a rigorous fellowship training program.

ACMS members participate in at least 500 Mohs surgery cases under the supervision of an experienced ACMS-approved Mohs surgeon. That extra training time leads to the best possible results for every patient Dr. Chui sees.
