The B J By Janine Ferguson Photography by Cory Sorensen Perfect Dermatologist Anna D. Guanche, MD, finds success by choosing and pursuing the right patients for her practice. Fit DERMATOLOGIST AND DERMATOLOGIC SURGEON Anna D. Guanche, MD, entered medical school with her sights set on becoming an orthopedic surgeon in the field of hand microsurgery, until a friend persuaded her to do a two-week rotation in dermatology. "Te morning of my very first day of rotation we did laser resurfacing, a lip filler and a large skin cancer surgery on the abdomen," she recalls. "I was dumb-founded. I could not believe that we could do all these procedures in dermatology." At lunchtime, she called her husband to tell him she would be changing her specialty. "I knew I would never be bored. I love detail work—that's why hand microsurgery appealed to me—but this allowed me to do more than one area of the body," says Dr. Guanche. "I can make people feel good, and it's artistic, which was something I wanted from the very beginning." 28 JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2014 | MedEsthetics
